New Choice for Flat Roof PV Installations, Offering Fierce Competition

Schletter releases the Fix-EZ solar mounting system for flat roof applications, multifunctional components result in lower price per kW and fewer parts

March 6, 2013—Tucson, Arizona—Schletter, a global manufacturer of solar mounting systems, introduces the Fix-EZ, a new PV mounting system for flat roof applications. Wind tunnel tested with integrated grounding, the Fix-EZ offers 7 or 15 degree module tilt options, and is engineered 100% IBC code compliant.


Designed with multifunctional components the Fix-EZ packs a substantial punch in a small system. System integrated ballast blocks act as ballast weight as well as the system's support mechanism. Module mounting rails support modules and perform as the system's windbreak with Schletter's ETL Listed Rapid2+ modules clamps for bonding/grounding the modules to the rails.

"Easy to put together at a lower cost per kilowatt, this system highlights what Schletter is known for," said Justin Smith, Western Regional Manager at Schletter. Mr. Smith went on to say that "The Fix-EZ is the answer for flat roof applications. It's a high-quality, engineered product at a competitive price."

The basic design of the Fix-EZ comes from the company's Fix-Z Series, incorporating several pre-existing components. Two new features of the system are the ballast block, with integrated connection rod, and a Rapid Angel Connector (L-foot), tying the system together. The company is currently in negotiations with a national supply chain for streamlined, reduced shipment costs of the concrete blocks for customers.

Introducing RockIt Smart Slide

Introducing RockIt Smart Slide - the ultimate solution for fast and easy installation of the rail-less RockIt racking system on composition shingle roofs. Smart Slide conforms to UL 441 and TAS 100 (A)-95 for wind and wind-driven rain, providing a super-strong watertight seal that is achieved through compression, in most cases without the need for additional sealant. The waterproofing sealant is embedded deep into the granules of the shingle, thanks to the integrated flexible foam layer that provides cushioning. This ensures a secure fit that conforms to any architectural-style shingle. With UltraGrip Technologyâ„¢, you can rely on a secure installation, as it absorbs the movement created by thermal expansion and contraction. The pre-installed sealing pads are compatible with all composition shingle roofs, making it the ideal choice, even in ambient temperatures as low as 5 degrees.
