Solar Panel Security Screw

Security screws to prevent the theft of solar panels

Solar panel security screws feature a unique fan-shaped drive and a flanged head with serrations under the head. They are M8 security screws that are manufactured from A2 stainless steel for outdoor use.

The unique fan-shaped drive requires a special key wrench for insertion and removal, and the fixing tool is number engraved and designed for use in tight spaces and channels.

In addition to protecting solar panels, the fan style head makes this security screw suitable for applications also involving a recess or channel – such as lamp posts and telephone switching cabinets. The drive is particularly effective in resistance to cam-out, which can occur frequently in other drive types.

Solar panel security screws can be used with various security nuts.

Their high level of security resistance is paired with a high level of corrosion resistance – making them an exceptional choice.

M8 Security Screws

Solar panel security screws are available from stock in an M8 diameter in stainless steel. Other diameters, lengths and materials are available to order and specials can be made to order subject to minimum order quantities.

We are able to stock a wide range of M8 screws – please locate the screw you require via our website and check the stock size tables for more information.
