Schletter Inc. Launches Cost-Savings Program for Utility-Scale Installers

Launching at Intersolar North America, Schletter is offering a set of tractor-trailers for scheduling by FS System customers throughout the U.S.

Schletter©, a well-known partner in solar photovoltaic (PV) racking systems, will unveil the first of its tractor-trailers equipped to service customers installing large commercial and utility-scale ground mount solar PV arrays.


The company plans to launch the new program at Intersolar North America in San Francisco July 12 – 14, 2011. Located in booth 5146, one of the company's two booths at the trade show, Schletter will showcase the key systems of their ground mount product capabilities. Included in the display will be the tractor-trailer, FS System™, and GAYK™ hydraulic pile driving ram used in the majority of its FS System installations. The company plans to release two tractor-trailers within the US in the coming months.

"Not only will this program be cost-effective for our customers who participate in our ram rental and purchasing program," says Martin Hausner, President of Schletter Inc., "it will also expedite delivery times, resulting in additional cost savings and reduced wait times in scheduling the rams for FS site testing and installations. Schletter believes in creating long-lasting partnerships with our clients, as well as providing a higher standard of service than what is typically offered in business-to-business relationships today."

In addition to the FS site testing, the tractor-trailers will be available to Schletter customers for product demonstrations, hands-on training, local workshops, ribbon cutting events and the like. The fully equipped tractor-trailers will be launched alongside the Helios 3D solar layout software for utility-scale system planning.

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.
