LIXIL Corporation Develops New Installation Method for Solar Panels

LIXIL Corporation released a solar power generation system that reduces the number of foundations and construction cost by connecting beams February 3, 2014. The Consecutive Type enables to reduce the number of columns at the time of increasing the number of panels by using sleeves to connect beams. With the smaller number of beams, the number of foundations decreases, reducing cost for foundation work. It is suited for middle-sized solar systems with a large number of panels. Connected beams increase a sense of unity, creating a neat, beautiful appearance. As a measure to prevent solar panels from being stolen, Lixil developed an 'anti-theft bolt.' Because the bolt cannot be easily removed, it is possible to increase anti-theft effect just by replacing existing bolts with the new bolt.
