SolaTrim LLC Announces Labor-Saving Addition to Product Line

SolaTrim LLC announced today that another barrier size option will be added to their product line.

Sacramento, CA, USA — Due to an increasing demand, SolaTrim LLC announced today that another barrier size option will be added to their product line. In addition to the original ST-001, SolaTrim is now offering the ST-055, similar in design, but with a 5.5″ width – a full inch and a quarter narrower than the standard 6.75″ wide ST-001.

“We’ve had increasing requests for a barrier size that could be readily applied to the solar array perimeter without trimming the barrier aluminum width to fit a uniform 5.5 inches. We are currently supplying a solar installer in Long Island who requested a high volume of this narrower size, and they have reported great success. We thought it only natural to add the ST-055 to our product line so other installers using similar racking and offsets could take advantage of this labor-saving convenience,” said Bob Smith, President of SolaTrim LLC.

SolaTrim™ Adds National Solar Distributors Inc. as Third Canadian Supplier for Innovative Solar Protective Barriers

More Canadian Solar Installers Adopt SolaTrim Protection System to Aid Compliance with Recent Pest Abatement Subrule Added to Canadian Electrical Code.

Sacramento, CA, USA — SolaTrim™ LLC (http://www.solatrim.com), innovators in protective barriers to beautify and safeguard residential solar systems, has signed National Solar Distributors of Edmonton, Alberta, (NSD, http://www.nationalsolar.ca) as the company’s third Canadian distributor this year. NSD will be offering SolaTrim’s solar panel protection system to residential solar system integrators across Canada.

Known as “Canada’s Friendly Solar Distributor”, National Solar Distributors is a wholesale distributor of photovoltaic systems and components with more than 25 years of combined solar experience. National Solar carries a wide array of products for residential and commercial solar installations, including industrial and small off-grid installations. The company maintains a carefully cultivated inventory of high-quality, reliable, and innovative products as part of their commitment to deliver the right products at the right time at a great price. SolaTrim protective barriers are now part of the NSD product catalogue.

“We’re thrilled to be bringing on the SolaTrim product. Installers have been knocking down our doors for an attractive and robust solution to comply with new pest protection rules, and SolaTrim definitely covers all of those bases. When a homeowner commits to 25+ years of a PV system, it has to look and perform well, and SolaTrim is a big part of that.” said Matthew Lannigan, Managing Director of National Solar Distributors. “For us, it’s night and day between this any anything else on the market. This is a unique product that addresses a variety of solar installation issues and we know it will be a hit with our customers.”

SolaTrim is an all-weather aluminum barrier applied to rooftop solar array perimeters to prevent pests from nesting under the solar panels while providing a clean, finished look to any solar installation. SolaTrim provides an out-of-the-box solution that complies with the changes to Rule 50-018 of the 2015 CE Code – Part 1, which will require photovoltaic source circuits installed on or above a building to be protected against damage from rodents unless DC arc-fault protection is located at the module. An Appendix B note has also been added indicating that material such as expanded metal, solid metal, and screening can be used to enclose photovoltaic source circuit conductors as protection against damage from rodents.” (http://www.electricalindustry.ca/latest-news/1184-2015-ce-code-part-2-changes)

The SolaTrim panels come with a peel-and-stick adhesive that attaches permanently to the solar modules and requires no screws, clips or fasteners that could either fail, negatively affect the system’s appearance, or void the solar module manufacturers’ warranty. SolaTrim’s panels are stiffened by design to resist warping or bending and diamond-stamped to facilitate airflow. The adhesive has been tested to withstand extreme weather conditions, is engineered to permanently prevent birds and rodents from nesting under the solar array, and is designed to last for the life of the system.

“This is the third Canadian distribution agreement we have reached in recent months,” said Bob Smith, co-founder and President of SolaTrim. “We’re pleased to see a growing demand for our protective barrier across Canada as more solar installers appreciate the SolaTrim concept: an aesthetic barrier that can protect and beautify rooftop solar systems, prevent rodent infestation, and even resist winter ice dams and snow loads. This is definitely something Canadian Solar companies can use. SolaTrim is a great addition to any system, but with the new Electrical Code revision in effect, we are prepared to see a steady increase in demand for SolaTrim protective panels from National Solar Distributors along with our other Canadian partners.”

SolaTrim™ Signs Hybrid Power Supply as First Canadian Distributor

SolaTrim Expands Market Reach for PV Protective Barriers with Calgary-based Value-added Distributor of Specialty Alternative Energy Products.

SolaTrim Logo

Sacramento, CA, USA (January 16, 2016) — SolaTrim™ LLC (http://www.solatrim.com), innovators in protective barriers to beautify and safeguard residential solar systems, today announced that the company has signed a distribution agreement with Hybrid Power Supply (http://www.hybridpowersupply.com) of Calgary, Alberta. With this new distribution agreement, SolaTrim not only expands its market presence into Canada but also opens up new sales opportunities in niche alternative energy applications.

Unlike many residential solar system distributors, Hybrid Power Supply targets specific channels and markets, including off-the-grid power systems, marine solar systems, and RV solar systems. The distributor maintains an intimate catalog and does not offer preconfigured residential solar system modules. Instead, they offer specialty products such as solar batteries, power inverters, controllers, and switches as well as solar panels that can be assembled into custom solar systems. Hybrid Power Supply considers itself a value-added solar distributor, offering product training, support, and warranty servicing to dealers and installers.

“We believe that protection of solar systems is something that’s been neglected by the industry for far too long,” said Haig Davis, president of Hybrid Power Supply. “We are excited to be bringing SolaTrim to Canada as now we have a product available to Canadian solar installers and homeowners that provides the last vital component in the residential solar installation and what’s great is SolaTrim does this in an aesthetically pleasing, easy to fit practical way.”

Hybrid Power Supply will be supplying solar installers across Canada with SolaTrim barriers. SolaTrim is an ideal addition to Hybrid Power Supply’s catalog of solar charge controllers, inverters, and batteries.

“We are delighted to have found a specialty distributor such as Hybrid Power Supply to help open the Canadian region, and introduce SolaTrim to new integrators serving niche markets,” said Bob Smith, co-founder and President of SolaTrim. “Canada is a burgeoning market for solar power, and SolaTrim barriers are ideal for keeping debris and pests from under solar arrays. SolaTrim also helps prevent rooftop snow loading and ice dams by preventing snow from accumulating under solar arrays in winter.”

SolaTrim is an all-weather aluminum barrier stiffened by design to resist warping or bending and diamond-stamped to facilitate airflow. The SolaTrim panels come with a peel-and-stick adhesive that attaches permanently to the solar frame and requires no drilling or clips that could negatively affect the system’s appearance or the solar module manufacturers’ warranty. The adhesive has been tested to withstand extreme weather conditions and will last for the life of the solar system so it will permanently prevent birds and rodents from nesting under the solar array, which can cause damage to the solar systems.
