By Greentech Lead Team: Bryce Fastener, a custom
manufacturer of anti-theft high security screws and nuts, has launched Raptor, anti-theft
fasteners specifically intended for the solar industry. Bryce Fastener will
showcase these anti-theft fasteners next month at PV America West Show at the
San Jose Covention Center in San Jose, CA.
Theft of solar panels is just one of the many challenges
the solar industry continues to face. The new Raptor anti-theft product is
meet the challenges of securing solar panels effectively without adding high
extra costs to an already expensive venture.
Solar panels are secured to mounting racks by four
standard bolts and are easy to dismantle by unauthorized personnel. The new
Raptor fastener meets the required criteria for this type of application
because the design integrates high- security theft protection, high strength,
and better grounding potential for solar panel mounting systems.
Private, highly controlled keyways keep unauthorized
personnel from breaching the panel, while larger head style and pin provide 30
percent greater torque strength than standard fasteners. The deep serrations
underneath the head prevent loosening over time, due to thermal expansion and
contraction and double up on the grounding effect of the screw as well.
Bryce Fastener delivers a customer-specific unique
privately keyed lock, resulting in a 99.9996 percent security track record,
which is more effective than the strongest padlocks.
