Securing solar systems with less chipping 09 May 2024

The EJOFAST® range, manufactured by EJOT, has now been expanded to include drilling screws with a diameter of 6mm. Like the other members of the product family, the JF3-2-6.0 is particularly useful in the solar sector.

Used to mount solar substructures on trapezoidal profiles using short rail systems, the EJOFAST ® self-drilling screws enables slip-free positioning when screwing and reduce the amount of chips produced thanks to a particularly finely crafted tip geometry.  
The slim, single start drill tip of JF3-2-6.0 does not produce any sharp-edged chips that get stuck in the material and have to be laboriously removed. The special thread shape also allows for high assembly speeds, allowing users to work more efficiently.

In addition this latest product, EJOT has a broad portfolio for solar mounting, such as the ETA certified and self-drilling EJOT solar fastener with sealing washer and ORKAN dome. The stainless steel connecting element is suitable for mounting PV systems on roofs with trapezoidal profiles, sandwich elements and corrugated fibre cement panels. It transfers all tensile and compressive forces directly into the substructure, allow a secure fastening. The range is rounded off by a selection of sealing elements and adapters.
