VORTEX Split Kits

Split Kit
includes the necessary parts required to engineer
a split in the row of panels. Typically used for panel obstruction
work-arounds to circumvent skylights, vents, chimneys, pipes, etc.
or when different size panels are combined.

Also for use when a row of panels is split over two adjoining roof
surfaces; i.e. the panel row begins on a south-facing roof, and then
splits and continues onto a west roof.

Complete Split Kit includes:
4 - CPVC* Panel Adapters; used for connecting to panel***
4 - 1.5"x2" PVC Reducer Bushings; used with Panel Adapter to
increase to 2" ****
4 - PVC Couplings; used with Bushings to connect PVC
pipe together**
1 - Panel Kit [see below]

Panel Kit includes:
2 - 3" Rubber Couplings; used for connecting the
panel headers together in a series***
5 - #32 Stainless Steel Hose Clamps; used for sealing
Rubber Couplings to panel headers***
4 - Header/Strap Stainless Steel Clips; used for fastening
panel and strap to roof or rack
4 - #14 1/4"x1.5" 3/8" Hex Head Stainless Steel Screws;
used for fastening Stainless Steel Clips to roof

Concrete Tile or Wood/Metal Rack applications include:
The appropriate screws are substituted for the Stainless Steel Screws above - based on the customer requirements that are
chosen in dropdown selection box at top of this page entitled
"System Hardware Kit based on installation application"

Shingle, Metal or Modified/Rolled Roofs or Pressure Treated
Wood Frame Racks, use standard kit screws:
#14 - 1/4" x 2" - 3/8" Hex Head Stainless Steel Screws
Barrel or Flat Concrete Tile or Concrete Roofs, substitute:
#14 - 1/4" x 1 1/4" - 5/16" Tapcon Hex Head Screws
Aluminum or Steel Frame Racks, substitute:
#14 - 1/4" x 1" - 7/16" Hex Head Bolts and Locking Nuts

Note: If two panel rows are installed one above the other
on the same or different roof, then order a Double Row Kit
instead of a Split Kit.

*CPVC withstands high temperatures and requires all-purpose CPVC glue. If PVC glue is used, it may result in leakage.
** Based on Plumbing size selected above
***Based on Panel Header size selected above
****Included only when selecting 1.5" Headers with 2" piping.
