EcoFasten Solar’s Rock-It System Receives Engineering Certification in 10 States

The Rock-It System is a fast, easy to install rail-free solar roof mount that conforms to UL Subject 2703, and holds a Class A Fire Class Resistance Rating when used with Type 1 listed PV modules.

Morrisville, VT: EcoFasten Solar recently received Engineering Certification from the structural engineering firm PZSE Inc. for their Rock-It System, specific to the following states: California, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, and New Jersey.


The Rock-It System is a fast, easy to install rail-free solar roof mount that conforms to UL Subject 2703, and holds a Class A Fire Class Resistance Rating when used with Type 1 listed PV modules. The top down leveling feature gives the installer the freedom to level the array during or after the installation is complete.

PZSE Inc. has determined that all information, data, and analysis contained in the Rock-It System installation manual is based on, and is in compliance with, the structural requirements of the following Reference Documents:
• Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and other Structures, ASCE/SEI 7-10
• International Building Codes by International Code Council, Inc. (State-specific)
• State Building Codes (State-specific)
• Aluminum Design Manual, 2005 Edition & 2010 Edition, by The Aluminum Association

"Rail- free mounting is revolutionizing PV Installations across the nation. We all know that installers are beholden to local permitting authorities, some of which have stringent requirements. 3rd Party design certification is an important permitting tool for our customers, and an important milestone for any engineered mounting system" says EcoFasten Solar Engineering Manager, Ryan Ward.

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
