SnapNrack debuted its new Ultra Rail System at Solar Power International this year, a lightweight rail solution for mounting solar modules on the roof. Ultra Rail, a lighter rail profile, is a more economical solution for projects in more average load conditions, especially when attachment spacing is already dictated by the existing roof structure and more mounts are needed to disperse the weight of the system.
SnapNrack believes when compared to a railless system, Ultra Rail is a more cost effective solution for customers installing on a mix of roof surfaces rather than one roof type for every install. The entire system is a snap to install utilizing new Ultra Rail Mounts that include snap-in brackets for attaching rail. The spring-loaded roof mounts provide superb full rail leveling capabilities and all components come pre-assembled for a unique install experience and easy tightening.
SnapNrack’s wire management solutions are still compatible with the Ultra Rail System which features a large top rail channel providing ample room for wires and cables. Furthermore, the system is compatible with all existing module clamps and maintains the same intuitive install experience.
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.
