Highest Fire Safety: SOLARWATT Panels are Fire Safety Class A Certified

SOLARWATT Panels are Fire Safety Class A Certified

SOLARWATT glass-glass panels received the best possible certification in fire class A according to the IEC 61730-2 standard (UL 790). This proves that the double paned solar panels of the Dresden-based premium supplier meet the highest safety requirements should they be exposed to fire. The certificate applies to the entire Vision 60 product range from SOLARWATT.

The better the classification of photovoltaic modules in the fire classes from A to C (A being highest), the more certainty homeowners and building users have about the fire resistance of their solar power system. In the classification tests it is possible to verify how safe the panel is when it is exposed, for example, to an ignited firework. "With SOLARWATT panels, customers have products on their roofs which meet the highest safety and quality standards. With fire class A, we can reliably prove this", explains Norbert Betzl, Director of Product Management Solar Panels at SOLARWATT. 

After completion of the tests required for class A, the PV panels tested still served up two thirds of their original output.
