Viridian Solar won the New Product Innovation award at the Solar and Storage Live 2022 Awards in Birmingham on 19th October for its new solar safety product - the ArcBox solar connector enclosure.
The award completes a double for the innovative new product, having also been awarded the Product Innovation Award at Solar Solutions International in Amsterdam earlier in the year.
ArcBox simply clamps around a solar DC connector to reduce the risk that arcing in poorly joined connectors spreads to surrounding materials and causes a more serious fire. Solar applications that benefit from additional fire protection measures include building integrated solar, installations above combustible roofing materials and installations on high consequence buildings such as hospitals, schools and high value manufacturing.
Stuart Elmes, CEO at Viridian Solar said:
"We're thrilled that the ArcBox has been awarded as the most innovative new product of 2022 in both the UK and Netherlands. We have had interest from across the sector - for commercial, utility and domestic applications and hope that this product can make a real difference to safety in our industry."
