The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standards only require a mechanical load bearing capacity of 5,400Pa.

The company has reduced the profile of its frames from 43mm to 35mm, making them compatible with industry standard clamps for fixing modules to substructure and allowing more modules to fit on a pallet than before, thereby saving storage and transport costs for customers.

The company optimizes solar cells in the city of Halle an der Saale from manufacturers to produce its own modules, while modules are being manufactured in Glava, Sweden.

The company claims this manufacturing process makes its modules environment friendly, and carbon footprint of them is estimated to be around 50% less than of conventional European modules.

Once processed, the solar cells are being inspected using additional thermal imaging to make sure that they are free from hot spots, which could damage the solar modules and result in significant yield losses.

Various tests by independent experts including the Photovoltaik-Institut Berlin demonstrate the high efficiency, longevity and positive environmental impact of the company’s modules.

Innotech Solar vice president module sales and marketing Thomas Hillig said "The load capacity test demonstrates that its new frames can withstand at least 1,345kg."

"Therefore they are also particularly suitable for installation in areas of high snow fall or strong winds," added Hillig.
