Talking SPI 2018 with IronRidge

Contributed by | IronRidge

Tell us about your company.

IronRidge was founded in the mid-1990’s to create products that could support and protect off-grid solar installations. At the time, California’s Mendocino County was the epicenter of the residential solar industry, and solar arrays were primarily being installed on hand-built structures. IronRidge’s first products allowed solar panels to be secured to a steel pole that could be placed anywhere.

In the years that followed, solar grew and evolved into a mainstream industry, with panels being installed on nearly every building type, in nearly every region of the world. IronRidge supported this evolution by developing standardized, code-compliant platforms for both roof- and ground-based solar. Our field-proven products are now supporting hundreds of megawatts of solar projects and are trusted by thousands of solar professionals across the globe.


Your company will be exhibiting at SPI 2018, what is it that makes this an important event for your company?

SPI is an invaluable chance for us to connect with like-minded solar professionals from across North America. The tradeshow also provides us with the opportunity to showcase our latest innovations in solar racking, as well as sharing industry knowledge with others. This year, we will be showcasing several new products as well as participating in the educational poster area.


Highlight 2 or 3 products you will be showcasing at the event?

One of the new products we’ll be showcasing is CAMO – which can be seen for the first time at our SPI booth #892!

Additionally, you can see Conduit Mount, a new attachment product that provides versatile support for a variety of electrical accessories, while protecting the roof with proven structural, electrical, and waterproofing technology.


SPI 2018 has many educational sessions & demo’s, is your company involved in any of them this year?  

We will have an educational poster titled “Ready for Rail-less? Determine Which Racking is Right for Your Company” on display in the exhibit hall.


When you get a chance to walk the exhibit hall floor yourself, what is it you will be most interested to see?  Any educational sessions you plan on attending?

We’re always interested in seeing what new technologies and innovations are coming out of the solar industry!


When you book a booth for a tradeshow like this what are your expectations and what does your company hope to accomplish at the event?

Our goal is always to meet with solar installers to discuss their needs and day-to-day reality. Some of our most successful products were conceptualized because of feedback and conversations we had with installers at industry events.
