Full Tilt by BCI launched its turnkey fixed tilt racking system in April 2021 and is now announcing a new strategic partnership with ARaymond. Full Tilt will be the first fixed-tilt solar racking system to incorporate ARaymond’s PowAR Cinch and PowAR Wedge clips.
“The PowAR Cinch is a great product with a proven ability to reduce installation time,” says Chris Bartley, VP Business Development at Full Tilt. “When used in conjunction with Full Tilt’s Longhorn panel rail, we are seeing an unprecedented reduction in module loading and fastening times. The PowAR Wedge system for First Solar Series 6 modules is even faster with 50% fewer clamps. These powerful product combinations will deliver tremendous value to EPCs and developers alike, and we are thrilled to bring them to the market.”
ARaymond is an expert in plastic and metal assembly solutions, with more than 150 years of experience designing, engineering and manufacturing assembly systems. Its module clamps establish a strong but flexible mechanical attachment that saves time not only during installation but also throughout the project lifetime, as they do not require periodic torque checking. ARaymond Energies’ clip fastener systems allow photovoltaic panels to snap easily into place without the need for labor-intensive screw and bolt systems, significantly reducing assembly time and making the whole installation more profitable.
With over 30GW of solar racking delivered as a contract manufacturer and backed by decades of engineering and global supply chain experience, Full Tilt by BCI was built with the installer in mind. The system boasts an innovative yet straightforward design with fewer parts and rapid installation features along with manufacturer direct pricing.
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
