Bryce Fastener Donates Highest Security Solar Panel Screws to Haiti Project

Phoenix, Arizona (PRWEB) July 05, 2012

Bryce Fastener Inc., manufacturer of the worlds most theft-proof solar panel fasteners, recently donated their specialty screws and bolts for an Advanced Solar Industries, LLC project in Haiti. Bryce ( offers their security fasteners at a highly discounted rate to solar installers needing a low cost, effective, anti-theft device for solar development in impoverished countries.

Advanced Solar Industries used the fasteners to install a 3.99kW array on a clinic vital to a community outside of Port au Prince, Haiti. The free clinic is run by the non-profit group Project In Development and will provide electricity to over 25,000 members of the rural community there. Solar provides reliable and quality power for the clinic making energy not just a convenience, but a necessity to transforming the lives of the people they serve, says Chris Byers, Outreach Manager for Advanced Solar Industries. Security is a major concern down there, so it helps me sleep at night knowing we have that added layer of Bryce protection for the system, adds Byers.

Advanced Solar Industries knew that having a strong theft deterrent in place as well as a sophisticated back up system were the two key elements in making an operation like this work, thats why they chose to use Outback Power System and solar industries top selling anti-theft device, Bryces Key-Rex with Raptor feature. Before the solar installation, poor quality power from the city (low-voltage) resulted in light bulbs, computers and other sensitive equipment experiencing failure and damage. Because the city is only capable of putting out quality power intermittently, the Outback Power System only allows quality power from the city to feed the loads. If the power falls out of the pre-programmed, acceptable range then the Outback Power System will switch to solar power. The 21 MAGE M190 modules were mounted on Solar Wedge- 5deg tilt kit racks using Bryces Key-Rex with Raptor fasteners.
