"We are excited to receive certification for the first system in a series of solar panel mount assemblies. This designation acknowledges our commitment to stringent quality manufacturing processes" says business owner Brian Stearns. EcoFasten Solar® has been steadily gaining a strong foothold in the roof attachments sector of the renewable energies industry since 1996. "Having over 2 decades of experience with roof attachment product design and manufacturing through sister company Alpine SnowGuards® paved the way for expanding in another growing industry. Several manufacturers make suitable rack systems for rooftop devices, the missing link has always been the mount that comes between the rack and the roof."
