Array Edge Screen Critter Guard by SnapNrack is a universal array guard system – attaching to any solar array. Keep Animals and debris out, no drilling into PV Modules. Best of all, it attaches to the inside edge of module frames, so the mesh screen is inset naturally from the array edge, creating a much cleaner appearance than other mesh systems.
Why You Might Need Array Edge Screen…
This is an attractive system that mounts a mesh screen around the edge of a PV module array to protect from infiltration by pesky birds, rodents and debris. The mesh screen is vinyl-coated steel – rigid enough to keep out even the most industrious squirrel. The kit includes all the hardware necessary to install the screen around any array configuration. The clips mount to the underside of the module without any drilling required. The black poly coated screen and all the black hardware offer a long lasting protective solution as well as creating a clean visual aesthetic.
Installs on perimeter of solar array between solar panels and the roof.
The clips are painted steel and can be snapped to the appropriate length to accommodate height variations. The clips attach to the bottom flange of the module frame and have hooks to snap the screen into place.
Simply slide the edge clips on the bottom edge of the module frame all around your array edge, then and use the integrated hooks to mount the screen. Module Clips spaced every 3-4 feet will provide a protective barrier to guard against animals and debris. Screens can be trimmed to required height and length with common shears.
