Freedom of design
Our designers and engineers can create a tilted roof racking as you envision. Typical designs can be flush (0 deg. tilt), or tilted at 5 to 30 deg., landscape or portrait. Any common roof type. Structure can be one, two or even three layers to accommodate any construction type.
Create elegant structures
Our experts can help create a visually appealing structure that will not rust. Our racking can integrate seamlessly into architectural projects. Gap between modules can be closed. Rails available in any anodization color, as required.
Complete turn-key engineering services
Our engineers will review the building's roof plans and create a custom structure that matches the roof design, and any other project requirements. We provide detailed, project-specific plans that details installation steps. We can provide a P. Eng. Stamp for all U.S. states and Canadian Provinces.
Fewer roof penetrations per PV
Better Panel Protection
Full Aluminum Design
Fully Adjustable System On-Site
Highest Standard for Engineering & Support
Our engineers use only the safest methods of calculation, to assure maximum solidity and durability of the structures. We have proprietary, recent wind tunnel tests with Western University, and we design using the latest Building Codes (ASCE-7-16, NBCC 2016, IBC 2018), as well as SEAOC PV2 notions of array size versus roof size to account for extraordinary vortices. Minimal deflection allowed on rails, and finite element analysis done with high-end 3D engineering software. Each zone ballast & anchors calculated individually. We find solutions to each unique challenge, and we react quickly if unforeseen events happen during construction (such as unmarked drains, roof equipments obstruction and last minute changes).
Project-Specific Building Permit Plans & P.Eng stamp with each project
Custom, project-specific building permit plans, stamped by a local P. Eng., are provided for each job, describing step-by-step where each component goes, on the exact project site, with markups, details and explanations custom to each project's specific difficulties.
