Over the past year or so, we’ve heard from many installers and distributors about how helpful they’ve found the installation videos we’ve been busy creating for many of our products. Fairly recently, 4 new videos have been completed and added to our website. Each represents a different roof type (low-slope, corrugated metal, metal standing seam and SIPs panels), and each will make your next install faster and easier than ever before. Just wait and see.
SimpleGrip-SQ for Low-Slope Roofing Applications
SimpleGrip-SQ was engineered specifically for use on low-slope and flat roof applications, and because the system is compatible with a variety of EcoFasten compression bracket options, installers are enjoying the flexibility of having a customized system for each and every low-slope or flat roofing project they work on.
The system is fast and simple to install, while utilizing the patented watertight compression technology EcoFasten is known for, and the lightweight, durable construction enhances wind uplift and seismic values without adding additional weight.
Take a look at the video and see what we mean:
Easy, right? SimpleGrip-SQ’s large base allows for multiple attachment points to distribute compressive loads over standard insulation. Meeting or exceeds all known building codes, the system was tested extensively for watertight properties, pullout, and shear in accordance with AC286 (rain testing) and ASTM D1761-06 (mechanical fasteners in wood), and was designed to attach to new or retrofit roofs.
Simple Seal System for Corrugated Metal Roofing Applications
Simple Seal: A solution so simple, yet a concept so grand, that solar installers and roofing contractors alike turn to it time and time again when working on metal roofs. Simple Seal is a cone shaped EPDM rubber bushing that was designed specifically to fit into the milled counter-sink on the underside of our bracket options) currently 10 bracket options that are compatible with the Simple Seal System). Here’s the video showing a standard L-foot installation:
When the system is fastened to the roof, a watertight compression seal is formed, which, like all of the products in our line, will maintain the integrity of the roof without voiding roofing manufacturer’s warranties.
ASG-U Clamps for Metal Standing Seam Applications
Our ASG-U Clamps have become the “go-to” for solar installs on standing seam roofs due to the fact that they’re an extremely cost-effective, yet rugged solution, and the installation of the clamps won’t pierce the roofing material, thanks to the use of oval-point set screws.
- Fast and easy to install
- Durable fabrication
- Clamp measures 2″ L x 1.5″ W
- Set screws provide a secure attachment point without piercing roofing material
- Clamp-to-seam technology won’t void panel manufacturer’s warranties
Eco-44R-NDD for SIPs Panel Applications
Installing solar arrays on Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) can be complex, since there is no embedded lumber throughout the structure. Our engineering team loves problems like this because it gives them the opportunity to do what they do best – create a fast, easy, straight-forward solution that makes sense, while remaining cost-effective.
The Eco-44R-NDD has quickly gained recognition throughout the solar community as the go-to system for installs on SIPs.
Creating an impenetrable moisture barrier, the lightweight, yet durable fabrication enhances wind uplift and seismic values without adding to the system’s overall weight. Meeting or exceeding all known building codes means the Eco-44R-NDD is a solution you can trust.
Pretty straight forward, right? That’s what we aim for – making your time on the roof easier and faster.
We hope these videos have proven to be as helpful for you as we intended them to be, and if there’s a video that you’d like to see, just let us know.
