Bad Staffelstein, 23 May 2023 – IBC SOLAR, a leading full-service provider of SOLAR energy solutions, will be exhibiting from 14 to 16 June 2023 at Intersolar Europe, with exhibits in the three market segments Residential, Commercial & Industrial and Solar Parks. This year’s highlights include innovations in the area of in-house mounting systems, including a test area for trying them out, as well as live module tests on the load table of the SUNLAB test laboratory. As previous year, the company is emphasising its focus on sustainability with a trade fair stand based on the Cradle to Cradle design principle in Hall A4, Stand A4.470 and A4.570.
Load test under extreme conditions – the SUNLAB load table
IBC SOLAR focuses on high-quality products. In order to be able to guarantee the highest standards, the in-house modules and mounting systems are put through their paces with a total of seven endurance tests in the PV test laboratory, SUNLAB. The load table, which performs a static-mechanical load test of the entire solar module in combination with the mounting, plays an important role in this. This test process can be observed live at the IBC SOLAR trade fair stand. The live tests take place three times per trade fair day at 11 am, 2 pm and 4 pm at the stand and the products have to prove their quality.
Test and convince – new and proven mounting products
Last year, IBC SOLAR presented the aerodynamic IBC AeroFix G3 flat roof mounting system for the first time at Intersolar. Now the company has made some improvements that have had a big impact. Thanks to the optimisations to joints and connecting elements, installation is even easier and safer. IBC SOLAR will announce details in a separate press release on 1 June 2023.
IBC SOLAR will be showcasing the tried-and-tested IBC TopFix 200 modular system for pitched roof installations. With various clamps, rails, roof hooks and moulded sheet metal tiles, the system is suitable for universal use on almost any pitched roof.
The innovations in the field of mounting systems have one thing in common: In addition to the usual top quality, they are designed for even faster and easier mounting. Couple with greater flexibility and versatility, they offer important advantages for installation companies and make everyday work much easier, as they guarantee significant time savings.
In order to see the quality and advantages of IBC SOLAR mounting systems for yourself, installers can try out the new and exciting components directly at Intersolar 2023 and install them themselves. The stand will have its own test area for this purpose, where IBC SOLAR experts will also be available to answer any questions. Interested parties can try out the clean installation of the Mammut Form S+ sheet metal tiles. This replacement tile with integral roof hook eliminates the need for time-consuming modification and bending of the tiles. Tile breakage and damage to the roof can be avoided. Three different rails can be tested in the trapezoidal sheet mounting area, including those with height compensation on uneven roofs. And at the flat roof area, installers can see for themselves how easy it is to mount various supports.
Sustainability focus through Cradle to Cradle design principle
Once again this year, the IBC SOLAR exhibition stand meets the company’s sustainability standards and is built according to Cradle to Cradle principles. This means that the majority of the materials used can be completely returned to the biological or technical cycle after the trade fair without downcycling. For example, wood from sustainable forestry is used for product tables, cabin walls and counters. The aluminium frames are still used in the stand construction and there is no floor at all, which also has a positive impact on the eco-balance. The recycling rate of the exhibition stand is approx. 98 %.
IBC SOLAR experts are looking forward to having active dialogue at Intersolar Europe from 14 to 16 June 2023 in Hall A4, Stand A4.470 and A4.570.
