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

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.
