Silverback Solar, based in Santa Cruz, Calif., has introduced a new solar racking system designed to be compatible with typical commercial roof structures and waterproofing systems used today.
According to the company, Silverback's system utilizes stronger materials to span longer distances than other systems, creating fewer penetrations, and it mounts to commercial rooftops with a patented watertight attachment system.
‘In order for commercial rooftop solar to proliferate, we needed to simplify the installation and really protect the integrity of the roofs,’ says Ryan Bruce, CEO of Silverback Solar. ‘Silverback Solar rack configurations allow the arrays to be elevated off the roof, with fewer connection points that are mounted directly to the structural framing.’
Each Silverback order includes project-specific structural calculations with a wet stamp by a licensed structural engineer, along with layout drawings and installation instructions on blueprint-sized sheets. The system consists of five components and three fasteners, and the components arrive pre-assembled, the company adds. The system can adjust to any roof pitch or angle and is compatible with nearly all PV modules.
