ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO, October 15, 2008 - Unirac Inc., North America's leading manufacturer of solar photovoltaic (PV) mounting solutions, today announced the launch of their Laminate RapidRac PV mounting solution for flat roof commercial systems which is being showcased at Solar Power International 2008, in San Diego, CA, from October 14 to 16, 2008.

This latest solution from Unirac has been engineered to rack frameless laminate modules in flat roof ballast applications.

"Unirac continues to innovate and expand the RapidRac product line and offer installers highly engineered mounting technology designed with experienced customer input," said Doug May, Unirac CEO.
