GameChange Solar successfully completed grounding and bonding testing under ETL/UL 2703 for use of rivets as an alternate panel mounting hardware as well as in some cases for attachment of certain components in racking structures for fixed tilt and tracker systems for use with both framed modules and thin-film modules. Rivets are approved for use on all GameChange Solar pile driven and ballasted fixed tilt as well as tracker systems. Standard rivets and rivet guns may be used.
Woo Kim, Director of Engineering at GameChange Solar, stated: “We added rivets as an alternate to our ETL/UL testing to give customers greatly flexibility. Rivets require no torque marks and often allow customers to increase installation rates for mounting modules.”
