Gripple, a manufacturer of time-saving products for the civil and seismic markets, is now moving into the solar arena with a few tried and tested solutions to secure new and existing ground-mounted solar arrays.
Head of Infrastructure at Gripple John Butterworth explains why Gripple have moved into the solar market “Born out of our experience in the seismic and civil industries, dealing with secondary protection against external forces from earthquakes and force protection, puts Gripple in a great position to understand how to reinforce structures.
“Gripple understands how bracing and anchoring works in these arduous environments and how the external forces are calculated specifying products whilst keeping incredibly high safety factors in mind. All this knowledge is being transferred with tried and tested products into the solar market.”
Gripple’s lightweight yet durable solutions will reduce your job-site environmental impact by minimizing the need for heavy machinery, concrete and groundworks on site. Whilst also saving time and money with these ready to use kits for bracing and anchoring.
John Butterworth continues “We design and manufacture everything ourselves and have a good vertically integrated supply chain. Gripple have people globally with local knowledge to help with the understanding of local standards and local system needs. We deal on a project by project basis and work with your team for the best solutions”
The ready-to-use kits have been designed and developed to save you time, reduce your costs and increase installation efficiency.
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.
