The new solar panel rules is now in force in San Francisco, where all new buildings of 10 floors or less must have solar panels installed. For those companies in the construction sector who have never worked with solar panels before, there are many questions they could face, such as:
What is the best way to secure a solar panel to a roof?
What parts are needed to fix a solar panel to a roof?
What are the best products to use to secure a solar panel to a roof?
What can go wrong if the incorrect products are used to secure a solar panel to a roof?
FMW Fasteners have spent time looking into what's needed for solar panel installation. They were very surprised to find out that the good old hex lag screw is fundamental in securing the panels to the roofing! FMW recommend that the stainless steel hex lag screw is used as a secure fastener for outdoor uses, as this will combat all-weather corrosion. FMW Fasteners is based in Houston Texas who sell premium anchor fixings, nuts, bolts, screws and socket products across the USA.
