This September, AceClamp will be announcing its newest solar racking system. Developed after months of research and interviews with solar installers, the end result is a patent-pending adjustable PV rack product designed for simplicity, ease of installations, and wind resistance.
Originally invented for high-velocity hurricane zone (HVHZ) applications, the new solar racking system by AceClamp is capable of resisting up to 200 mph winds when mounted to Island Style Roofs (ISR), exceeding the HVHZ standard 185 mph.
In addition to ISR, AceClamp’s solar racking system can also be securely fitted to standing seam metal roofs (SSMR) using any of AceClamp’s non-penetrating, sliding-pin metal roof clamps. The system is compatible with a multitude of mechanical lock and nail-down metal roofs, as well as TPO, Membrane and asphalt shingles. AceClamp also plans to add compatibility with their soon to be announced corrugated exposed fastener metal roof system.
The kit, which comes partially assembled, features symmetrical shapes that simplify and speed the installation. Installers simply snap-fit parts onto the rail and tighten them down. End supports automatically match panel height and are able to be secured using one hand.
Both of AceClamp’s classic Rackless Solar Mounting Kits and L-Foot Kit utilize its patented “slide-pin,” non-penetrating roofing clamps that help prevent roofing panel damage that set screws can cause. Tough stainless steel serrated caps on top and bottom creates a reliable panel connection, and its clamp grounding slot allows for wire security. The kit is universal, designed to fit every PV panel size. The made-in-the-USA parts are readily available and constructed of non-corrosive aluminum and stainless steel material.

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.
