With PVStop, solar panels can be covered within seconds. The fire retardant solution blocks the light from reaching the solar cells. Disabling takes less than three seconds; disabling the entire solar panel takes six seconds at most.
PVStop is designed to work similarly to a fire extinguisher and comes in a variety of sizes for flexibility and portability.
The range varies from small hand-held drums to large pump- and hose extinguishers. PVStop can be sprayed at a safe distance of 5-30 meters, allowing the coating to be applied directly from the roof or from the ground in an emergency or fire situation.
The polymer film is designed to stick to solar panels during all weather conditions. Even if the solar panels are wet, the coating will stick to the panel, unlike fire foam which tends to slide off smooth surfaces.
Easy to remove
After the coating dries, PVStop can be easily removed by hand. The coating contains no glue and does not damage the solar panels in any way. The coating can be removed up to 12 months after application, even when exposed to UV and other weather conditions.
Not harmful to the environment
The coating can be safely disposed of with household waste and is not harmful to the environment.
Current solar panel hazard mitigation solutions are all preventative, meaning they must be installed before a disaster or hazard occurs to be effective. PVStop gives solar panel owners, firefighters and emergency responders the ability to use a reactive tool to make solar panels electrically safe when needed.
