Allied Tube & Conduit and RoofScreen are partnering to provide the solar industry with a cost-effective photovoltaic mounting solution based on Allied's Gatorshield tubing and RoofScreen's frame technology.
‘The strength of Allied Gatorshield tubing allows RoofSceen frames to span long distances while using less material,’ says Ed Kurasz, vice president of Allied Tube & Conduit's mechanical division. ‘The result is fewer frames and roof penetrations.’
Racking systems provide several advantages over ballasted systems, which can deteriorate roof membranes, says Ryan Bruce, president of RoofScreen. RoofScreen mounting systems allow access to the roof for maintenance and improve the efficiency of solar panels. Engineering support from Allied and RoofScreen ensures that the custom-designed systems will withstand wind, snow and earthquakes.
