The ZAM Mounting System Used in Japan

Powerway mounting systems in Japan are made of the steel with the best corrosion resistance: SUPER DYMA steel, ensuring a long life span and allowing a warranty of 25 years.

Japan is made up of four main and over 3,000 smaller islands. They suffer from frequent typhoons and earthquakes, so to fully protect PV modules Japan has strict requirements for mounting systems, including both high strength and corrosion resistance. Powerway mounting systems in Japan are made of the steel with the best corrosion resistance: SUPER DYMA steel, ensuring a long life span and allowing a warranty of 25 years.


"Surface treatments of steel were first developed for resisting corrosion," said material engineer Mr. Xiangyun Deng. They can be classified into two categories: plating and coating. Plating includes both hot-dip and electrical. Using the hot-dip method, with diversified combinations of raw material and hot-dip material, more steel products can be produced to meet customers' requirements for heat and corrosion resistance, and long life span.

Super Dyma steel is highly corrosion resistant steel, engineered to deliver outstanding performance in some of the toughest and harshest environments. Aluminum, magnesium and silicon are added to a conventional zinc coating, resulting in a compounding effect that dramatically enhances corrosion resistance. Super Dyma steel is 10--20 times more corrosion-resistant than ordinary hot-galvanized steel sheets, and 5--8 times more than hot-dip aluminized steel sheet.

GreenFasten™ solar panel roof mount hardware, watertight, USA made

The GreenFasten™ - GF1 system utilizes the patented watertight technology EcoFasten Solar® is known for. The flashing is fit with our EPDM rubber bushing and when used with a compatible EcoFasten Solar compression bracket (milled with countersink), a watertight seal is created, which protects the integrity of the roof. Requiring just a single fastener (lag bolt or self-drilling), GreenFasten provides the fastest install in the industry and will not void roofing manufacturer's warranties. Backed by IAPMO certification, GreenFasten delivers a mounting solution for all new or existing (retrofit) composition shingle roofs, and is the most cost-effective solution available. Like all of the solar roof mount solutions in our line of products, GreenFasten is made in the USA using recycled materials.
