Waaree Energies, India’s largest solar PV module manufacturer adds another feather to its cap by passing the Type – 1 fire testing standard from Intertek, a UK-based multinational Photovoltaic & Solar Panel Testing and Certification group, for its solar PV modules.
The UL 1703 is a Standard for Flat-Plate Photovoltaic Modules and Panels. Thisstandard requires PV systems or modules to comply with the minimum fire classification of roof assembly which includes - fire performance, hail resistance, and/or resistance to wind uplift. With its Type – 1 fire testing clearance, Waaree’s solar modules are now certified to be in compliance with UL 1703 for integration with all Class A rated mounting systems.
The fire safety requirements for UL 1703 have been developed in the earthquake-prone region of California. These requirements cover modules and panels intended for use in systematic frameworkswhich have a maximum system voltage of 1000 V or less.
