At IronRidge, we want to help your team work better together
At IronRidge, we want to help your team work better together.
We understand that going from the sales proposal, to the permit package, to the completed installation requires a great deal of team collaboration and organization.
That's why we provide a free online Design Assistant tool to help you streamline the design, permitting, and installation of your solar projects.
The tool can be used to configure the racking portion of pitched roof, flat roof, or ground-based solar installations. In just a few minutes, Design Assistant walks you through the process of designing and pricing a project. Real-time engineering calculations let you know if the design falls within the parameters of IronRidge's pre-stamped engineering, and you can request a quote from a local distributor once you're done.
And now Design Assistant has released the Project Reports feature - a dynamic document that gives you a breakdown of parts by array and row, plus dimensional drawings of assemblies and products used in the system. Changing the parts or layout in Design Assistant is simple, and the project will immediately update the engineering values and bill of materials.
You can make a quick and accurate adjustment to the design at any time and still keep the project on track. Design Assistant eliminates the time spent chasing down certification letters, re-calculating rail lengths in the design, reconfiguring the bill of materials… instead, everything you need is in one place.
What's even better - this handy reference document is ready to send to any member of your team with a single click.
Plus, you can find dynamically selected certification letters in Design Assistant - automatically provided based on your state and the products used in the design - so that the permitting documentation you need is available in one easy-to-find spot.
