How Solar Panel Fasteners Affect Maintenance Cycles

Although some businesses in the solar panel industry concentrate on increased upfront revenues and higher volumes, smart businessmen and women consider the maintenance cycle of their products and plan accordingly. All aspects of assembly and installation, as well as parts and materials, factor into the maintenance cycle of solar panels and other alternative energy systems. Solar panel fasteners play an important role in ensuring your profits remain high, mainly by reducing warranty costs and service calls.

How Warranty Costs Eat Away at Profits

Both manufacturers and installation contractors must deal with warranty issues. In most cases the parts and labor involved are a straight loss, bringing in no additional revenue and tying up your current schedule. Warranty issues may also damage your credibility and work against any marketing efforts, especially when negative word of mouth or social media testimonials get around.

In some cases your business can include an estimated warranty cost in the initial item price, allowing for greater flexibility when service is required. But competition in the solar industry continues to grow, pushing prices down and creating pressure to maintain competitive pricing levels that may not include room for warranty costs. The Importance of Quality Materials and Skilled Labor Quality becomes essential in order to maintain your competitive edge. Not only must each component of your solar energy products be durable and well designed, the installers must have up to date training and take into account the unique factors of each project. All of these aspects come together to improve quality and reduce warranty claims. Stainless steel solar fasteners provide a higher quality finish that can handle moisture, wind and heat in extreme amounts. Resistant to corrosion and providing a consistent appearance, stainless steel mounting blocks, clips, screws, bolts and other types of solar panel fasteners cost more initially, but reduce or eliminate warranty issues long into the future.

All elements of your solar panels systems that are vulnerable to rain, wind, snow and sleet should be examined for durability. Would another type of material provide greater reliability? How would that design change affect the up-front costs and is that change worthwhile from both the consumer's and contractor's standpoint? How easy it is for you to source that material, and is it compatible with the balance of the product? Galvanic corrosion can occur when stainless steel is combined with aluminum, although either material works well on its own.

Many consumers are willing to pay more for a superior product, especially when that product is backed up by proven performance. Stainless steel and aluminum solar fasteners have been used in a wide range of projects, providing premium performance over years of use. Both metals are also well know for durability and strength.

When compared with other fastener materials, stainless steel and aluminum create a much shorter service or maintenance cycle. Although your customers may be concerned with the initial cost and warranty coverage, they will also be happy to invest in greater levels of durability.

Fasteners may seem like a small portion of your solar panel system, but the right type of solar panel fasteners can significantly shorten the maintenance cycle and improve profits. Wise business leaders look at these options and ensure their product meets the high standards required in the solar energy industry.
