clawFR Product Platform

Faster build speed, more design options and intelligent O&M features along with the reliability you have come to expect from PanelClaw.

Faster Build Speed:

  • Single bolt hardware kit with no loose nuts

  • Tool-less patent pending module attachment means speed

  • Flexible order of operations: build your racking before modules arrive or hang modules as you build. Let site conditions and project conditions dictate optimal order of operations, not the racking

  • Simplified wire management

  • Pre-installed roof protection pads

  • 25% improvement in packing density means fewer pallets

More Design Options:

  • Platform is available in single tilt (5 or 10 degree) and Dual Tilt (10 degree)

  • Best roof coverage ratios at every tilt angle

  • All the strength benefits of a rail based design configurable one module at a time (2 modules at a time for dual tilt)

  • More localized wavy roof flexibility than any rail based design in the market +-3 degrees opposing slopes accommodated

  • Universal, patent pending, module agnostic module attachment method for framed modules

  • Reduced racking overhang increases roof coverage ratio and enhances array aesthetics

  • Available as ballast only, fully attached, or hybrid (based on site requirements and conditions)

Superior O&M Features

  • Best walkway access for every row spacing option makes building and maintaining the system easier than with any other flat roof mounting system

  • Superior corrosion resistance with no price premium (ZAM coating delivers approximately 5x better corrosion resistance than G90)

  • Optimally placed, visible mechanical attachment location for ease of inspection

  • Optimizers mounted under modules with optimizer QR codes visible even after modules are hung

  • 90 degree single module tilt up feature

  • Redundant module level bonding and grounding makes single module replacement simple

Reliability

  • Most rigorously tested flat roof racking platform in the world

  • SEAOC PV1 and PV2 2017 full compliance with peer review

  • ANSI/UL 2703-2015 Listing

    • Class A fire rating for Type I and Type II modules with no additional parts required

    • Module level mechanical load listing for up, down and down-slope

    • Electrical grounding and bonding using a single lug per subarray

  • High strength structural steel components

  • 25 year limited product warranty

clawFR 10 Degree

  • Build rate of 280 - 420 modules per day with a 4 person crew (includes full mechanical installation, ballasting and module-to-module wiring)

  • Best row spacing options in the industry with the most walkway (Row Gap) access in the flat roof sector:

    • 11” Row Gap yields an 80% roof coverage ratio

    • 14” Row Gap yields a 75% roof coverage ratio

    • 17” Row Gap yields a 70% roof coverage ratio

  • Best platform load capacity range in the industry (ability to place as few as zero and as many as 8 captured ballast blocks per module)

    • 2 psf to 12 psf

A quick overview of clawFR 10 Degree Tilt Components and their benefits.

We jam packed clawFR 10 Degree with some of the biggest customer "asks" we have received over the years.

clawFR 5 Degree

  • now available

    The 5 degree flat roof geometry is one of the toughest in solar to install, ballast (or attach), and wire. We’ve taken all of these challenges into account and have delivered the best flat roof 5 degree racking ever by PanelClaw.

  • Build rate of 120 - 200 modules per day with a 4 person crew (includes full mechanical installation, ballasting and module-to-module wiring)

  • Best row spacing options in the industry with the most walkway (Row Gap) access in the flat roof sector:

    • 6.9” Row Gap yields an 85% roof coverage ratio with full wind deflection

    • 10.4” Row Gap yields a 80% roof coverage ratio with full wind deflection

  • Best platform load capacity range in the industry (ability to place as few as zero and as many as 5 captured ballast blocks per module)

    • 2.3 psf to 8.0 psf

You will not find a better 5 degree flat roof PV mounting system. All clawFR connections are made using a single bolt size. Modules are attached to clawFR using no tools. Row access gaps are the most generous for wind deflected designs and are wide enough for O&M while also delivering up to 85% roof coverage rations.

clawFR Dual Tilt 10 Degree

  • Build rate of 300 - 440 modules per day with a 4 person crew (includes full mechanical installation, ballasting and module-to-module wiring)

  • Superior row spacing

    • 8.6” high side Row Gap with a 2” Low side Row Gap yields a 90% roof coverage ratio

  • Aerodynamic design with fully ballasted, attached or attached with ballast “hybrid” options

    • 2.9 psf to 13 psf

Universal components make clawFR DT easy to design, deliver the lowest platform loads, and lowest life-cycle-cost
A high side gap that allows for walking access to install, wire and maintain the system is just one of the many system benefits of clawFR DT.
clawFR Dual Tilt represents a significant innovation for flat roof dual tilt racking. Single bolt, no tool module attachment method and high side gap features mean easy install and simpler O&M.

clawFR Wire Management Accessories

PanelClaw has developed two proprietary wire management accessories designed to facilitate DC wire management for the platform. In order to help installers, we have also published a clawFR wire management guide that includes these two proprietary parts as well other compatible third-party wire management aids.

  • Wire Router

    • Used for routing wires/cables between rows in the North/South direction for clawFR 10D and in the East/West direction for clawFR Dual Tilt. The cable router will hold up to 4 cables

    • Sold in packs of 25

  • Wire Clip

    • Used for routing wires/cables underneath rows along ballast rails in the East/West direction for clawFR 10D and in the North/South direction for clawFR Dual Tilt. The cable clip will hold up to 8 cables

    • Sold in packs of 100
