Bryce Fastener Inc., manufacturer of the world’s most theft-proof solar panel fasteners, recently donated their specialty screws and bolts for an Advanced Solar Industries, LLC project in Haiti. Bryce (BryceFastener.com) offers their security fasteners at a highly discounted rate to solar installers needing a low cost, effective, anti-theft device for solar development in impoverished countries.
Advanced Solar Industries used the fasteners to install a 3.99kW array on a clinic vital to a community outside of Port au Prince, Haiti...Because the city is only capable of putting out quality power intermittently, the Outback Power System only allows quality power from the city to feed the loads. If the power falls out of the pre-programmed, acceptable range then the Outback Power System will switch to solar power. M190 modules were mounted on Solar Wedge- 5deg tilt kit racks using Bryce’s Key-Rex with Raptor™ fasteners.
The Key Rex with Raptor™ feature is designed to integrate high-security theft protection, high-strength, and better grounding potential for solar panel mounting systems. Private, highly-controlled keyways keep unauthorized personnel from breaching the panel, while larger head style and pin provide 30% greater torque strength than standard fasteners. The deep Raptor serrations underneath the head not only prevent loosening over time due to thermal expansion and contraction, but also double up on the grounding effect of the screw. Raptor has been tried and tested by top solar companies such as SunPower, REC Solar, Inovus, Sun Light & Power and has quickly given rise to its claim of being the most secure and theft-proof fastener in the world.
