Carbon Solar PanelWith the new Carbon model, SUNBEAMsystem offers a resilient solar panel with a very quick and simple installation on an existing canvas (for example a Bimini).

It used to be problematic to fit big solar panels on canvas. Canvas will not offer adequate support for a traditional big soft solar panel. This has been noticed in the yachting community with excessive material wear and break downs leading to some yacht owners opting for heavy, rigid and framed solar panels that demand a complicated installation.

SUNBEAMsystem has previously only sold 54Watt sizes for use on Canvas to help customers avoid damage to the big sized solar panels. This even though SUNBEAMsystem solar panels that are meant for fitting on a hard surface are stiffer than most other brands solar panels in the same size. However customer demands have meant that many bigger sized panels have been fitted on Bimini´s and other types of Canvas. In some cases, also against better judgement by the producers and installers. A continuous flexing will wear out any type of material and sometimes unrelated damage might occur.

Problem solved. The integrated Carbon fiber stiffener addresses this issue and allows the use of big sized solar panels on top of a soft top. The strength/weight ratio of carbon fiber is important since the canvas will normally not support a heavy solution.

The Quick Fix system allows for a semi-temporary mounting on canvas or other surfaces. Easy and fast to mount with the stainless steel studs, the Quick Fix system is the ideal solution to mount solar panels on a sprayhood or Bimini.

The Black surface will match any type of colored canvas top. The edges are soft to allow a gentle interaction with the cloth. The transparency of the edges will let through the color of the cloth, hence not introducing any type of non-matched color.

The cells – 16% more power. The Carbon Quick Fix is a reinforced Tough+ with buttons for fitting on Canvas. The Tough+ series is developed for professional purposes and high-end installations. All models are fitted with Sunpower™ cells with an efficiency of no less than 23.7%, resulting in a high production in relation to the used surface.

Shadow Optimized. Even though mostly placed in sunny areas, partial shadowing is more common than one might consider. The protected Swedish design results in a higher production while a shadow is covering parts of the panel.

The innovative Tough surface offers a longer lifespan than any other thin and lightweight solar panel. The antislip profile catches more light in low sun angles. In addition, the dirt repellent properties also improve daily production by helping to keep the panels clean by rain.

The exotic materials used allows us to offer a unique 5-years warranty. Visit:www.sunbeamsystem.com
