Key Features

Solar Limpet Fixing Options


For tile applications, there are two installation options depending on the rafter position. Please see the fixing guide in downloads for more information.

Solar Limpets tile blanks can be used to replace the tiles under Limpets to avoid fragile handmade clay-type tile breakages

Reduced Breakages on Fragile Tiled Roofs

Using Limpet Tile Blanks to replace tiles below the Limpet baseplate will further reduce damage to fragile tile roofs. Also, using 1.2m lengths of 4 x 2inch timber rested on the installed Limpets in addition to the rails will also help spread any compression loading during the installation.

Solar Limpets Tile Cable Entry

Cable Entry

The Solar Limpets Tile Blank is simply adapted to provide an efficient, effective 4 or 6mm cable entry point. Please see the fixing guide in the downloads section and the support area for more information.

The Solar Limpet Metal L Bracket adapts the Limpet Adjustable Bracket to enable the use of rails mounted top to bottom, which is required for some landscape panel orientation options. Please see the fixing guide in the downloads section and the support area for more information.


Once trained 3–4 hours for a 4kwp install will be the norm.

Limpet tile blanks can be simply adapted to provide a weatherproof 4 & 6mm cable entry.

Fixed into the rafters but over the battens, Limpets automatically spread any vertical loading via the battens to adjacent rafters.

No tile cutting is required.

The patented baseplate design spreads any tile loading over a greater area. Installing the Limpet as per the training and using 4 x 2 inch timber lengths to spread the load will reduce breakages by 90% to 100%.

Possibly but mostly to replace the customers' already broken tiles. However, each Solar Limpet fitted provides one or two of the original tiles, so you will probably be able to leave the customer with several spare tiles.

No. The Limpet serves both as roof hook and a flashing, as good as the tile it replaced.

No. The Solar Limpet sits on top of the battens in the same way as the roof tiles and is securely fixed to the rafter below.

No tile cutting or grinding is necessary, and it is simple to install for any tradesmen, even electricians. LOL.

Yes. The Limpet rail bracket is simple to adjust, even after the panel has been fitted. Allowing you to level up the panels accurately.

Limpets are not suitable for tiled roofs on which the individual tiles have been spray foamed in the loft area.

Yes, but speak to Solar Limpets technical support before proceeding.
