Australian made and designed SunLock solar panel racking systems achieved over 6% market share during the last financial year according to Energy Matters.
  
“418 kilometres of SunLock rail was sold to solar PV customers in Australia during the 2011-12 financial year,” says Jeremy Rich, CEO of Energy Matters and sister company, Apollo Energy.
  
“The amount of railing would support around 50 MW of solar capacity. Given the solar industry installed approximately 781 MW of solar panels during last financial year, this equates to SunLock capturing over 6% of the mounting system market.”
   
Designed by Apollo Energy engineers, SunLock was launched in Australia just a few years ago and has rapidly become the system of choice for many solar installers. 
   
“SunLock evolved from feedback based on decades of collective experience of CEC accredited installers; so it’s a rack system developed by installers for installers,” says Mr. Rich.
   
“A properly installed SunLock mounting system is the easiest way to save time and money on installations; while ensuring compliance with Clean Energy Council guidelines.”
   
The SunLock family of solar panel framing products includes the original SunLock for pitched or flat roofs; as well as the newly added GroundLock ground-mounting system and the PoleLock pole-mounted frame. The company has also recently released SunLock Cable Clips, which provide a reliable method of fixing solar PV cable to the frame of solar panels. 
    
Fast to install, compliant with relevant standards (including AS/NZS1170.2:2011) and extremely robust, SunLock is backed by a 10 year warranty. SunLock is made from 6000 series aluminium (predominantly 6106-T6), which has a 25+ year service life under Australia’s often harsh conditions, even without anodising.
