Houston, TX (PRWEB) June 07, 2011
Houston based Pre Engineered Building Manufacturer, Whirlwind Steel Buildings, Inc. announced today, in conjunction with its other divisions Whirlwind Building Components and Whirlwind Solar, the launch of the first solar kits website for solar over metal roof system applications.
In addition to providing the pre-designed “peel and stick” solar laminate systems it has become famous for, Whirlwind Solar is now offering traditional crystalline “Bolt Down” solar modules. Whirlwind has a unique attachment method specifically designed to cost effectively attach PV modules to metal roof systems. The kits include the bulk of the solar related equipment and are specially designed for metal platforms. Whirlwind Solar Kits typically include PV Modules, Inverter(s), combiner boxes, DC Fuses, DC wire whips, lightning arrestors, warning labels, DC and AC disconnects one line electrical diagrams, and installation manuals.
This cutting edge approach, geared towards the pre-engineered metal building industry and architectural metal roof systems industry, will create a seamless approach to using solar on weather-tight metal roof systems.
According to Fred Reardon, operations manager for Whirlwind Solar, “We have 59 pre-designed systems. If the building owner stays within the confines of the system, they can benefit from a cost effective, pre-designed system that is penetration free. The future of solar is roof mounted and penetration free. There is no better platform for solar than a high performance Whirlwind metal roof system. Standing seam metal roofs are the only roof systems that can exceed the lifespan of a solar array.
