Trina Solar Limited, a global enterprise in photovoltaic (PV) modules, solutions and services, announced on July 5th, 2013, that it has received the new International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) 61730-2 standard certification with Class A Fire Safety from TUV Rheinland for its new frameless PDG5 module. Trina Solar is the first manufacturer in Asia to achieve this certification. TUV Rheinland's testing rated the PDG5 dual glass module to the highest level of fire resistance.

This achievement confirms both Trina Solar's dedication to producing high quality products and the superior reliability of the Company's frameless PDG5 modules. By replacing the traditional backsheet materials of conventional solar modules with a second sheet of 2.5 mm heat-strengthened glass, the PDG5 is optimized for reliable performance under stressful environmental conditions and is among the most durable modules currently on the market. The resulting module has increased resistance to fire, micro-cracking, potential induced degradation (PID), module warping, and degradation from UV rays, sand, alkali, acids and salt mist.

"This new fire safety certificate from the TUV Rheinland Group continues the Company's commitment to driving higher standards in the PV industry through close collaboration with our partners," said Zhiguo Zhu, President of Trina Solar's Module Business Unit. "Together with our rigorous internal quality processes, undergoing independent third party testing ensures that we are delivering the highest quality modules and solutions, such as the dual glass PDG5, to our customers."
