Shaner Industries Will Introduce Its New MastFoundation & Rapid Installation System at Intersolar North America 2013

Intersolar North America on July 9-11, 2013 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA.

Shaner Industries, a Pittsburgh-based company that specializes in the design, engineering and installation of its patented steel pipe finned foundations, is proud to introduce the MASTFOUNDATION & Rapid Installation System at Intersolar North America 2013 in San Francisco, CA.


Shaner Industries' MastFoundation & Rapid Installation System is designed as a one-piece foundation solution that costs less than other types of foundations and requires less time, less materials, less manpower, less equipment and less fabrication. The one-piece MastFoundation includes our patented finned foundation at one end of a steel pipe, and a top plate – designed to easily integrate with the solar structure – at the other end. The MastFoundation's efficient one-piece design completely eliminates the foundation to mast connection, allowing for a faster installation process.

"With our new one-piece MastFoundation & Rapid Installation System, the all-in-one steel pipe finned foundation and mast are installed at the same time saving our clients time and money," said Geoffrey Feidelberg, CEO of Shaner Industries. "The MastFoundation & Rapid Installation System eliminate the connection between the foundation and mast, which eliminates one full set of expensive hardware [usually necessary to connect the foundation and mast], and drastically reduces the installation time and the amount of materials needed to fabricate the system. The MastFoundation system also cuts the quantity of products by half, therefore reducing the time, manpower and costs associated with unloading and distributing foundations and masts at the job site."

With Shaner Industries' MastFoundation & Rapid Installation System there are only two steps in the installation process: the one-piece MastFoundation is installed, then the solar structure is mounted to the mast immediately following installation. As with all Shaner Industries' metal foundation designs, the MastFoundations are pre-engineered and delivered to the job site ready to install. Foundation installation requires no concrete, no excavation, no spoil removal, no dewatering and no waiting – making a Shaner Industries' MastFoundation or steel pipe finned foundation the ideal solution to support just about any type of solar structure in nearly any type of soil or location.
