The new mounting systems from K2 add another dimension to the areas that can be used to generate energy. This is because they allow systematic and therefore fast PV installation on facades.

Most of the parts required for this are already well known, as the K2 development team has realised a clever modular system with only a few new elements. The K2 WallPV systems consist of a few tried-and-tested roof components and a few newly developed products.

The K2 WallPV systems can be used on a variety of façade claddings and are available in three versions:

K2 WallPV FacadeRail: The K2 WallPV FacadeRail offers a first-class solution for facades made of solid masonry or concrete, as well as those in combination with rainscreen cladding and external thermal insulation composite systems (ETICS). The versatility of this system is particularly evident in its ability to be connected to the most common façade brackets.

K2 WallPV CarrierRail: The K2 WallPV CarrierRail offers a solution for installation on facades, particularly on large commercial buildings fitted with FischerTHERM Carrier® and MONTANATHERM sandwich panels. This innovative installation solution is not only approved by the building authorities, but is also characterised by its high installation speed.

K2 WallPV MultiRail: The K2 WallPV MultiRail offers a versatile solution for installation on facades with trapezoidal sheet metal or corrugated sheet metal. This proven mounting solution utilises building authority approved thin sheet metal screws to ensure secure and reliable fixing.

The InsertionRail insertion rails of the K2 WallPV MultiRail allow this system to be scaled up enormously in professional commercial construction. For smaller installations in workshops or mixed-use buildings, the K2 WallPV MultiRail also offers the flexibility and efficiency of the FacadeClamp module clamps.

The highlights:

Scalable modular components enable large-scale PV systems for sustainable energy generation, taking us a big step forward in the energy transition. What makes vertical PV systems even more attractive is that they have lower operating temperatures. And snow, leaves and rainwater do not remain on the modules. In addition, the yield can be even higher than with horizontally aligned PV systems due to the low position of the sun in winter.

So there are many good reasons in favour of these cleverly designed facade systems!
