TRA-Mage's First Awning Solar Mounting System in Mexico Withstands Tornado Force Winds

TRA-Mage designed an Awning Solution for the Ciudad Universidad in Mexico. High winds came and the solar mounting system Eco-Infinity Mexico installed stayed intact.

High winds tore through the Ciudad Juarez University campus. In their path was the newly installed Awning Solar Mounting System from TRA-Mage. Sergio Vegas called Hector Reyes of TRA Mage after the storm settled to tell him how happy he was with the systems performance. The Awning Solution stayed secure to the building and only a few of the solar panels were damaged.


Sergio Vegas said "We performed our first work with TRA and we are very happy with the service and the product as it greatly facilitated the installation process of the panels…on Ciudad Universidad (College Campus) in Ciudad Juarez Chihuahua Mexico."

Sergio Vegas of Eco-Infinity Mexico contacted Hector Reyes regarding a project on the Ciudad Juarez University campus in the winter of 2011. They were looking at different solar mounting systems for the new building on campus. Hector introduced TRA Mage's new Awning Solution that was designed for nearly any building. It attaches the solar panels to the side of any structure in landscape orientation. This awning solution met all of the aspects they were looking for.

After many conversations regarding the technical details and campus regulations TRA-Mage designed the system to meet the project requirements. Eco-Infinity Mexico provided the projects details and TRA-Mage provided the specifications, drawings and an engineered layout. The solar mounting system was installed early this summer and withstood the high winds of a tornado.

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.
