Q1:What is Solar Mounting System ? Nov 26, 2021

Solar mounting system is a supporting structure,which are fixed by the solar modules of a certain direction, arrangement and spacing , in combination with the geography, climate and solar resource conditions of the construction site, to maximize the power output of the photovoltaic power generation system. It is usually made of carbon steel structure or aluminum alloy structure, or a mixture of both.

Material of solar mounting system covering:

The raw material of solar mounting system is always using aluminum alloy AL 6005-t5, SUS304 stainless steel or hop dip galvanized Q235B carbon steel for production. Compared with cold galvanized steel sheet, other material are more suitable for outdoor usage, especially in island and rainy countries.During producing process, the derusted steel parts are immersed in the molten zinc at about 500 ℃, so that the zinc layer can be attached to the surface of steel members, so as to achieve the purpose of anti-corrosion. It is an effective metal anti-corrosion method,to ensure that the solar mounting system can be used for a long time under strong sunlight and humid weather.

Key points for high quality solar mounting system:

Using new materials only.

Recycled materials are easy to cause surface rusty in a short time.

Using hop dip galvanized steel only for steel solar mounting bracket.
Cold galvanized steel sheet are easy to rust within one year (average coating thickness 8-10 micron). Hot dip galvanized steel is the best way to prevent rusting and maintain beautiful appearance for a long time.(average coating thickness 55 micron).


Adding necessary sufficient zinc layer protection and antioxidant materials.

Test equipment.

Having necessary test equipment for antioxidant value.

At present, the most popular material in the market is aluminum alloy AL6005-T5 , because it has the following advantages

Light and soft:

The density of aluminum is about 1/3 of steel

Good strength:

The tensile strength of pure aluminum is 1/5 of low carbon steel, but its strength will increase greatly after heat treatment and alloying strengthening

Good corrosion resistance:

One of the characteristics of aluminum alloy is that a dense oxide film will be formed on the surface when contacting with air, which can prevent corrosion, so it has good corrosion resistance. If the "alumina membrane treatment method" is applied to it, it can comprehensively prevent corrosion

Good process-ability:

The aluminum alloy has good extrusion performance, and the secondary machining and bending processing are also easy to handle.

Easy regeneration:

Aluminum has low melting point, simple regeneration, and no pollution during waste disposal treatment, which is conducive to environmental protection and meet with the sustainable development strategy .

Advantages of solar panel aluminium structure compared with solar panel steel structure:

◭Saving installation time and labor cost.

Aluminum solar structure has higher machining accuracy ,much lighter weight,and parts have been high pre-assembly in factory to save 30% installation time.

◭Excellent duration.

With high class anti-corrosion protection,solar aluminium structure will have more than 20years duration lifetime and almost no need maintenance cost for outdoor using,but solar steel structure will have to be rewelded and repainted to keep its service life.

◭Affordable Price.

With reasonable price,price of aluminium solar panel brackets will not be very higher than steel solar structure ,only about 20~25% price difference.

◭High priced recycling.

Scrap aluminium can be sold at a high price after using,which about 40% purchase price of aluminium installation.but scrap steel will be worthless.
