UniRac Inc., a manufacturer of photovoltaic (PV) mounting architecture, has introduced a series of new product innovations.
UniRac's launch of the new 6-inch Double Row PV PoleTop represents the latest addition to the company's PV PoleMount 5000 series. The Double Row PV PoleTop will allow installers to mount larger arrays in zones with stronger wind gusts, according to UniRac. Made from welded steel, the new pole top is designed for a 6-inch schedule 40 or 80 steel pole and can support a significant load of 142 square feet of modules, up to 1.8 kW. Engineered to withstand 110 mph category C winds, along with a variable tilt angle from 0-65 degrees, this pole top will be available to order April 1.
UniRac has also developed the FastFoot attachment option for membrane roofs. Designed for residential and light commercial flat and pitched roofs, FastFoot offers installers flexibility by attaching to metal, concrete and wood structures, and it can be installed on all EPDM, PVC, TPO and built-up roofs, UniRac says.
Lastly, UniRac has introducing the three-quarter inch Conduit Strap, which is designed to facilitate module wiring on mounting structures. Specifically designed for use with SolarMount and SolarMount HD technology, this new strap fits into each rail's three-eighth-inch slot and firmly snaps into place without requiring tools or the need to drill additional holes. Made from nylon with UV stabilizer, the Conduit Strap is positioned under the module to anchor conduit or cables along the rail, with the added ability to use standard wire ties if desired. The Conduit Strap will be available to order April 1.
