A aluminum solar panel frame is an aluminum structure that is fitted into an encapsulated and laminated solar module. This frame is usually made of anodized aluminum and has been machined according to the solar panels design which is a design that is usually compatible with most racking systems for mounting and can be grounded in many different areas of the frame. The frame provides the overall rigidity of the solar panels but is also supported by the PV glass and back-sheet.

The choice of material, which is aluminum, is very important because this element is non-conductive and does not interfere with the electrical conversion of the solar cells. Aluminum also does not rust and is ideal when used at sea or placed near a body of water.

The aluminum frame is also anodized and this is done to ensure excellent resistance from corrosion in any types of weather. Anodizing the aluminum also toughens and helps the panel in withstanding heavy accumulations of snow and ice or even dust.

Using only a regular aluminum may result in an irreversible problem. Regular aluminum is soft and can easily bend. High temperatures from the sun can also deform a regular aluminum. When the aluminum frame of solar panels get damaged, the solar module will be heavily affected causing significant reduction in its performance.

If you find it difficult to acquire the material locally, you may try purchasing a racking system online to mount one solar panel because that one set can already be used to make your own frame. There are also some ready-made solar frames that can be purchased online but they are designed for factory-built solar panels but you can still use them for your purpose.
