SOLAR ESSENTIALS | Penetrating Mount System
Solar Mounting Solutions offers multiple types of fastening options to secure the rack to the structure. The most practical method will be determined by the contractor/installer. We provide various attachment options which may include standoffs that can be welded, fastened, or glued in place. We can integrate around roofing curbs or create sub-structures above the roof surface. In some instances, a direct attachment to the steel or concrete deck material is preferred. In other cases the use of a truss system is ideal.
The benefits of a penetration mount include overall lower dead loads while allowing for a higher capacity for live loads as well as added options for panel tilt and orientation regardless of your roofs drainage features.
