BayWa r.e. Solar Systems is starting up distribution of PanelClaw’s clawFR platform for commercial rooftops, now shipping from its recently expanded network of warehouses across the U.S. Public Customer Training for Panel Claw will take place on Thursday, Feb. 10 at 11 a.m. PST.
BayWa r.e. will be providing installers of all sizes a viable racking option paired with design, training and support services so they can bid on commercial flat roof projects. The partnership also offers engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) providers working with distribution partners access to clawFR. The team plans to roll out clawOS, a comprehensive racking array design software early this year.
“The partnership with PanelClaw provides our customers with new options for larger jobs in commercial flat roofs,” said Jodi White, co-CEO at BayWa r.e. Solar Systems LLC. “We strive to have best-in-class products like clawFR in our warehouses, and it checks all the boxes for our clientele in terms of performance, product support and project growth efficiency.”

A win, win, win.”
Featuring a 25-year limited warranty, the clawFR racking system is available in 10-degree and dual-tilt options. PanelClaw’s flagship product enables faster build times with a single-bolt hardware kit, tool-less module attachment and preinstalled roof protection pads.
