Quick Mount PV Introduces Tile Replacement Mount for Simple and Clean Solar Installations on Tile Roofs

"We saw a need in the marketplace for a simple and efficient method to mount solar on tile without compromising waterproofing or code requirements" said Quick Mount PV CEO Claudia Wentworth.

WALNUT CREEK, CA May 25, 2016 - Today, Quick Mount PV introduced the Tile Replacement Mount for rooftop solar installations. Installing solar on tile roofs can be difficult and time-consuming. Quick Mount's Tile Replacement Mount provides a fast and easy way to install solar on tile roofs while protecting against water intrusion. The Tile Replacement Mount eliminates messy and time-consuming tile grinding and cutting to significantly reduce installation time and labor costs. The new mount works with all standard curved and flat tile roofs, as well as all standard rail-based racking systems. The Tile Replacement Mount is fully engineered to meet code requirements and industry best practices, and features Quick Mount's patented Elevated Water Seal technology for superior waterproofing.


"We saw a need in the marketplace for a simple and efficient method to mount solar on tile without compromising waterproofing or code requirements" said Quick Mount PV CEO Claudia Wentworth.

"The Tile Replacement Mount is really innovative - it not only makes installs go much faster, but also creates spare tiles on the job," said Dean Rafaat, owner of Wired into the Future Solar, a solar installer based in Pleasant Hill, California. "Because there's no tile grinding or cutting necessary, it really reduces our installation time. We just measure out the roof, put the mounts in, replace the tiles and start laying modules. And the stress relief of having extra tiles is priceless!"

The Tile Replacement Mount features a universal base mount, which works with all three flashing profiles: Flat tile, S-shaped, and W-shaped curved tiles. To offer installers and distributors cost effective stocking and packaging flexibility, the universal base mount is sold separately from the flashings and posts.

The Tile Replacement Mount is 100% IBC compliant and comes with a 20-year warranty. Visit quickmountpv.com for more information.

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.
