The ZAM Mounting System Used in Japan

Powerway mounting systems in Japan are made of the steel with the best corrosion resistance: SUPER DYMA steel, ensuring a long life span and allowing a warranty of 25 years.

Japan is made up of four main and over 3,000 smaller islands. They suffer from frequent typhoons and earthquakes, so to fully protect PV modules Japan has strict requirements for mounting systems, including both high strength and corrosion resistance. Powerway mounting systems in Japan are made of the steel with the best corrosion resistance: SUPER DYMA steel, ensuring a long life span and allowing a warranty of 25 years.


"Surface treatments of steel were first developed for resisting corrosion," said material engineer Mr. Xiangyun Deng. They can be classified into two categories: plating and coating. Plating includes both hot-dip and electrical. Using the hot-dip method, with diversified combinations of raw material and hot-dip material, more steel products can be produced to meet customers' requirements for heat and corrosion resistance, and long life span.

Super Dyma steel is highly corrosion resistant steel, engineered to deliver outstanding performance in some of the toughest and harshest environments. Aluminum, magnesium and silicon are added to a conventional zinc coating, resulting in a compounding effect that dramatically enhances corrosion resistance. Super Dyma steel is 10--20 times more corrosion-resistant than ordinary hot-galvanized steel sheets, and 5--8 times more than hot-dip aluminized steel sheet.

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.
