High Performance Walkable Marine Solar Panel Specifications
Semi-Rigid Marine Solar Panels with SunPower Cells
65 Watt Walk On Semi Rigid SunPower Cell Solar Panel
65 watt walk on semi-rigid SunPower 24.4% efficient solar cell solar panel. Excellent for van roofs and boat decks. Measures 11.4x48 inches. 6 foot long #10 duplex cable included. Drill your own holes if needed in the 6 marked spots. We can supply mounting brackets as well. Come in white or black background. SunPower 24.4% efficient cells, the highest available on the market. Aluminum backing plate for rigidity (slight bending is possible) and sturdiness, and a thick layer of ETFE laminate to further protect the solar cells. For hot environments best to go with the semi rigid Light panels. Same size just less laminate.

Mounting Semi-rigid Walk On Marine Solar Panels
- They can be screwed down directly to the deck surface at each corner. We recommend a stainless screw with an oversized washer.
- They can be taped down directly to the deck with double sided Very High Bond (VHB) tape. Because the back side of the panel has a pebbled surface like the front side for air circulation, the tape must have a foam core of at least 1/8 inch to secure the panel.
- The third method is our preferred method. We have assembled a mounting kit consisting of two 'J' shaped aluminum extrusions. Buy the 1" VHB tape from Amazon on your own. The extrusions are mounted on each side of the long sides of the panel and adhered to the deck surface with the tape. If the deck surface is not conducive to adhering the tape, the 'J' extrusions can be screwed to the deck and the panel slid into position. This mounting method allows for the panel to be slid out of the extrusion for removal and cleaning of the deck surface. See pictures below.
The Semi-rigid solar panel mounting kit includes two 'J' anodized aluminum extrusions. These extrusions are available in two thicknesses. 1/4" for heavy duty semi-rigid panels or light wieght panels with 4mm twinwall polycarbonate underlayment and 3/16" for light weight panels. Specify the panel model number when ordering so the proper length extrusions are included.
