SPI 15 - Unirac and Folsom Labs release integrated PV design tools

The integration of Folsom Labs' HelioScope with Unirac racking products helps customers streamline their design and engineering process, from initial site assessment to detailed bill of materials and code compliance.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., Sept. 14, 2015 -- Unirac Inc., a Hilti Group Company and leading provider of high quality, competitive PV mounting solutions in North America, and Folsom Labs, the new standard in PV design software, are proud to announce a milestone in the continued evolution of solar software integration.


Projects designed in the HelioScope solar design platform can now be seamlessly imported into Unirac's U-Builder PV racking design tool for commercial flat ROOFMOUNT projects. The integration of Folsom Labs' HelioScope with Unirac racking products helps customers streamline their design and engineering process, from initial site assessment to detailed bill of materials and code compliance.

"Folsom Labs continues to evolve, bringing their ground breaking design platform to the solar industry," says Peter Lorenz, Unirac CEO. "HelioScope has become an essential part of our design process and plays a critical part in Unirac's effort to simplify the layout, design and project workflow for consumers of our Roof Mount solution."

"This integration with Unirac represents the future of solar software," said Paul Gibbs, CEO of Folsom Labs. "By linking Unirac's U-Builder to the HelioScope platform, our customers are now able to leverage the best of both programs. HelioScope's rigor makes it the ideal platform for unifying all solar design and sales processes, and Unirac is the ideal partner to showcase the power of that platform."
