    High Wind Areas Note:
    This is standard connecting and mounting hardware for Vortex solar pool heaters used throughout the USA and the world. Areas that have high wind zones may require upgraded/additional hardware to meet local codes; see SuperClips and speak to a Solar Direct representative about upgrade requirements.  Depending on your jurisdiction, your installation may require a permit from the Building Department; Solar Direct can provide standard submittals, or custom layouts if required – engineering fees may apply.
