SPI 2014 - S:FLEX Introduces a New Rail-less Mounting Solution for Standing Seam Metal Rooftops

Denver, October 7th 2014 – S:FLEX Inc., manufacturer of racking solutions for photovoltaic rooftop, ground mount and carport systems, is now offering a new Standing Seam Clamp to serve the growing demand for commercial standing seam metal rooftop projects.

This new product solution enables significant time savings during the direct attachment of the modules onto the standing seam without penetration. Fewer components and the compact design without long rails further reduces the transportation costs. The new Standing Seam Clamp is the start of a new product line for metal seam rooftops.


An additional advantage is that the elongated clamping area distributes the loads more evenly into the standing seam surface. Two EPDM bands at the bottom of the Standing Seam Clamp avoid any potential scratches on the metal roof. In cases where the distance between the standing seams doesn't allow for a direct installation onto the clamps, rails can be used and easily connected with the S:FLEX click-on Cross-Adapters. The Standing Seam Clamp is made out of aluminum and uses stainless steel hardware and is suitable for all module frame dimensions.

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.
