Schletter Group is introducing G-Max — the company’s next generation fixed-tilt, solar ground-mount racking system.
What’s cool about it?
According to Schletter, noteworthy cost benefits of the steel ground-mount product include increased adjustment capability in the field, increased spans between foundations, standardization and reduction of hardware, and lower costs across multiple installation steps.
The company says it will pre-assemble many components prior to shipment in order to allow installers to unfold and connect the structure more easily on site. Like all Schletter North American products, G-Max is manufactured in the U.S. and comes with a standard 20-year limited manufacturer’s warranty, adds Schletter.
“This ‘smart rack’ is unlike any fixed-tilt solar mounting system on the market today,” says Eddie Bugg, executive vice president of product technologies and applications at Schletter Group. “The design leverages our unique manufacturing technology to provide optimized racking for project-specific needs. The robust structural profiles are more stable for longer spans, positioning G-Max to succeed Schletter’s existing steel FS Uno product. Look for more product innovation from Schletter in the months to come.”
G-Max is currently ready for design and pricing on projects.
