EcoFasten Solar: Because the Integrity of the Roof Comes First

The top priority when installing an array is the act of maintaining the integrity of the roof. The best solar installers in the industry already know this. If you install an array and the fastener points leak, the roof, and your company’s integrity, will be on the line. No one wants that. Not you. Not your insurance company. Definitely not the homeowner.

If you haven’t already used some of the solutions in the long line of EcoFasten Solar roof mounts, you can have confidence in knowing that our systems won’t void roofing manufacturer’s warranties. Want to know why?

Our President and founder is a former roofer whose career began back in the 70’s. He knows roofs. I mean, he really knows roofs. He knows that the roof itself comes first and foremost, and he also knows that cost and speed are huge factors when it comes to any roofing job, whether that job is new construction, a re-roof, or the install of a solar array.

We work very closely with the top players in the industry in order to develop breakthrough watertight solar roof mount solutions that are versatile, simple, and secure.  We employ a dedicated team, each and every one ridiculously rich with talent, who understand roofing industry’s best practices so we can deliver products that do exactly what we say they’ll do.

So how do we do it?  The secret behind our patented technology was actually first used in the 1990’s (and still is) by our Sister Company, Alpine SnowGuards. Tested to withstand even the most rugged environments, our systems have been proven time and again as not only waterproof, but also as hassle-free, cost-effective options that are extremely fast (and easy) to install.  Characterized by roof type, each system can be paired with a variety of bracket options, giving the installer the freedom of attachment to almost all racking options out there.

Take a look at our wide variety of bracket options


The EcoFasten difference is the milled countersink on the underside of our compression brackets. Depending on your roof type, our base plates, flashings and/or EPDM rubber bushings will form a compression-fit when inserted into the bracket’s countersink. Here’s a photo showing how it all works (shown here is our GreenFasten system for composition shingle roofing).

How it Works

Imagine a compression-fit, completely watertight seal, offering 3 levels of watertight protection: One above the bracket, one between the bracket and the flashing, and another between the flashing and the roof deck.

Now that you know how it all works, take a look at your options.

Go to the “Roof Type” section on our website or select a below roof type to go directly to the products designed specifically for that type of roof.

On each product page you can view pricing, see the features & benefits unique to each system, download product guides, cut sheets, assembly drawings/BOM’s, installation instructions, and for some, you can even watch a short install animation so you can become familiar with the system quickly.

One solution you may not have thought of is managing snow on solar arrays. Have a look at the solar snow management options on the Alpine site and discover why the frame-mounted solutions have quickly become the “go-to” when managing snow on solar.

I hope you can all carve just a few minutes out of your day to have a look at our product line – I know we have the solution you’ve been looking for. There’s a good reason the top installers in the country rely on us…fast, easy, hassle free, cost-efficient systems that do what we say they’ll do. We’re in the business of making things easy for you.
