Van der Valk Solar
Systems and ROCKWOOL have completed a joint process, with the result that the
ValkPro+ mounting system for solar panels on flat roofs has been approved for
use on roofs fitted with ROCKWOOL insulation materials: Caproxx Energy,
Tauroxx, Rhinoxx, Rhinoxx D and Rhinoxx Afschot (cut to-fall).
frame design can significantly increase the efficiency of solar home systems by
reducing the temperature of solar modules when in use. This has been
demonstrated in tests conducted by the off-grid solar module manufacturer OPES
Solutions. The company investigated the temperature performance of various PV
module and mounting solutions on a typical corrugated sheet metal roof. The
material is frequently used in Africa and heats up particularly strongly in
sunlight. In tests, the “T-Frame” module developed by OPES Solutions, reduced
module temperatures by over 6°C and is now being used by Azuri, one of the
market leaders for high-quality Pay-As-You-Go solar technology
