Schletter, a manufacturer of solar mounting systems, has introduced the Fix-EZ, a new PV mounting system for flat-roof applications. Tested in wind tunnels and featuring integrated grounding, the Fix-EZ offers 7-degree or 15-degree module tilt options and is engineered 100% IBC code-compliant, the company says.
System-integrated ballast blocks act as ballast weight, as does the system's support mechanism. Module mounting rails support modules and perform as the system's windbreak with Schletter's ETL Listed Rapid2+ module clamps for bonding/grounding the modules to the rails.
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) that ties the system together.
Schletter adds that it is currently in negotiations with a national supply chain for streamlined, reduced shipment costs of the concrete blocks for customers.
