Solar Panel Mounting Kits
Solar Panels need to ventilate to work efficiently, our testing showed that panels lose over 50% of their power as surface temps go over 50 degrees Celcius...
The simple Aluminium Box frame design of most panels available is not suitable for mounting to vehicle roofs. (there is no base to fix too.) The Slimline glue down panels get too hot to quickly to be any use at all, and the plastic block mounts you can buy are heavy, expensive and require you to drill holes everywhere in your roof!
While we experimented with 50x50 aluminium angle - we needed a wider footprint to get a good bond surface for adhesives to connect - so we designed 2m long single rail mounting plates - with a 70mm wide base providing a great adhesive surface.
We started to make them commercially, in volumes that make them affordable :)
Mounting points are at high points on the tent roof - preventing potential water ingress.
Check them out in the video beside.
We presently make kits to suit:
Eezi Awn Stealth and Blade
Bundutec King and Standard Bundutop
The Bush Company Alpha and Black Series tents
Conqueror Trailers (UEV 490, 440 and Lightning models)
