The new Green Training Trailer has been specifically designed to provide UA members and MCA and MSCA affiliated associations with training related to the newest sustainable technologies.


Sustainable technologies, sometimes called Green Technologies, use less energy and natural resources than traditional technologies, have minimal impact on the environment, and use materials that can be reused or recycled. These new technologies will be used in construction and retrofitting in both commercial and residential projects. UA members will play a major role in the implementation of sustainable building and servicing methods.

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
