The PVKIT HUR (high uplift resistance) railless, direct-attach, solar-mounting system provides a simple way to install solar modules on metal roofs using an innovative anchor system that prevents PV modules from bowing and bending so they disengage under extreme forces from hurricane-force wind uplift or heavy snow loads. The system’s features improve the structural integrity of the module-to-roof attachment, reduce the added dead load of mounting components, and reduce point loads. Centroplan’s listed system combines components from several partners: S-5! (standing seam clamp), PV modules (JA Solar), and Butler (roof).

The Airzone Aidoo Pro Inverter/VRF Controller is an easy-to-install HVAC controller that bridges the compatibility gap between HVAC systems and smart devices or home automation systems. The product receives control data via API, interprets it, and ultimately sends the appropriate commands to the inverter unit via manufacturer-certified protocol, providing two-way communication between devices, preserving all inverter features, and ensuring efficiency, energy savings, and comfort for homeowners. Aidoo preserves Inverter/VRF energy savings that might be lost in other smart homes, the company says, cutting HVAC energy use by up to 60%.

AccuFrame is an air-sealing, pre-printed framing gasket solution that eliminates misplacement while also speeding up the framing process. The gasket sandwiches between the OSB back side and the framing face to provide a continuous air seal for walls and serves as a sill sealer. The product has been vetted by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority and has been shown to stop 81% of air intrusion in common frame walls. With its low cost and high-impact durability, AccuFrame is an ideal solution for affordable homes as well as homes in high-wind zones and seismic regions, the company says.
