Adjustable Solar Panel Mounting Frame
Increase the output from your solar panels with this sturdy adjustable solar panel mounting frame. Tilting a solar panel up to face directly at the Sun can increase the solar output current by up to 100%.
For example, in late March of this year we adjusted our 80 watt rigid framed solar panel from the horizontal position up to face directly at the morning Sun, and the output current almost doubled!
The frame can be bolted to the deck of your narrowboat or to the roof of your motorhome. When not in use or when travelling, the solar panel mounting frame can be locked in the horizontal position. When you reach your destination tilt the solar panels up to face the Sun and watch the output increase substantially.
These solar panel mounting frames can be used on any horizontal or vertical surface. Use them on the deck of a narrowboat, the roof of a motorhome, against a wall or simply on the ground.
The robust, rustproof aluminium alloy construction will give many years of service.
The adjustable frame can be set to any angle from horizontal up to 90 degrees.
- Adjustable mounting frame and fasteners comprising:
- 2 pairs of aluminium alloy extrusions 550 mm
- 1 pair of aluminium alloy extrusions 290 mm
- 4 sets of stainless steel screws
- 6 sets of adjustment knobs with wingnuts
- No solar panel is included.
Suitable for solar panel widths of up to 71 cm. For example, use with any SunWorks rigid framed solar panel up to 140 watts. Especially suitable for our 50 watt and 100 watt rigid framed panels.
For larger solar panels such as the SunWorks 180 watt panel, take a look at the large adjustable solar panel mounting frame. This larger frame can support a solar panel of up to 90 cm width.
Both of these solar panel mounting frames can be modified to suit your application.
NB: This frame MUST be locked in the horizontal position when the vehicle or boat is in motion.
Mounting the solar panel frame on a curved or uneven deck.
If you have a curved , stepped or uneven deck you can still use these adjustable frames. Simply use our ‘Adjustable Mounting Feet’. These feet are fully adjustable to any height and provide a secure means of fitting a solar panel to the curved cabin top of a narrowboat or yacht. Sold in pairs.
