PV panels offered by Virtue Solaris are certified to withstand extreme windloads of up to 2400Pa, which is approximately equivalent to a force of 240 kg per square meter!
Such solar panels can resist direct impact of huge hail balls of up to 5cm in diameter, thrown at speeds of up to 100 km/h.
Of course, resistance against wind also depends on the quality of materials and workmanship of the installation.
Virtue Solaris PV systems utilize only the highest quality hot dip galvanized steel or anodized aluminium mounting brackets, which are designed to withstand windspeeds of up to 52 m/s. This is more than a hurricane-force wind speeds that have never been recorded in Malta!
