Your Metal Roof Already Comes with Rails for Solar Mounting. Why Pay for Rails Twice?
Using the roof’s integrated “rails” makes solar mounting quick and convenient. What’s more, direct-attach with the S-5-PVKIT 2.0 reduces the weight of the mounting system by 85% while providing 25% better load distribution and 70% fewer components, as well as lower material costs compared to rail mounting.
With total mounting system weight below 3.5 lbs./kW (1.6kg)/kW compared to 19 lbs. (8.6 kg)/kW for railed systems, the savings in transport costs and logistics is tremendous. The solar zone layout is more flexible. The added load to the building structure is far less. Material handling is reduced and simplified with only 3 components for the mounting system. Electrical bonding is automatic. “Lay and play” installation saves time on the roof.
