New Year, New Photos to Share

First and foremost, EcoFasten Solar and our Sister Company, Alpine SnowGuards, wish you all a very happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year!  We hope you all stayed awake long enough to watch the ball drop, and that you made at least one resolution that will bring you peace of mind in 2015.

With that being said, we thought it would be fun to share a few installation photos of both our solar roof mounts, and our snow management systems at work.  Several times throughout the year, we ask our clients to send us any photos they may have, because it’s always helpful to see what a product looks like installed, as well as not installed.  So, thank you to those that have shared their images as well as their kind words throughout the year.

In what appears to be the start of a very cold January in Vermont (it’s -1° as I write this), the photo below this one really warms me up.


Without further ado….On the sunny, solar side of things:

Our GreenFasten™ GF1 solar roof mount was used on this installation, and has become known as the fastest install in the industry, while remaining the most cost-effective solution available for installations on composition shingle roofs.  Utilizing our patented, watertight compression technology, this is the system the top 3 installers in the US rely on.

This project, on a corrugated metal roof, utilizes our Simple Seal System.  Engineered for through-fastened, new or retrofit roofs, Simple Seal employs our patented, watertight bushing, which, when compressed inside the bracket creates a watertight seal.

On the wintry, snow guard side of things, we were fortunate to be sent the following:

The strongest snow management system on the market is Alpine SnowGuards’ fence-style SnowMax.   Fabricated from aircraft-grade aluminum, this cost effective solution allows increased bracket spacing (up to 48” on center), is available for standing seam, corrugated metal, and membrane roofing (see also our Solar SnowMax for solar panels), and is fast and easy to install.  You can even add a color insert strip to perfectly match your roofing material!

Our #225 Three-Pipe Height Adjustable Snow Guard is shown here on a slate roof in brass, which adds a very upscale look to an already upscale roof.  Optional ice flags were used, which hang from the pipe between the brackets to help keep snow and ice from sliding underneath.

On the synthetic slate roof of this gazebo, our #40 pad-style snow guards in copper look great, and they do the job! Our riveted “fish head” design gives optimum strength without the risk of unfolding.  Our snow guards are available in many color and powder-coating options to match your roof, or to please your taste.

Hope you enjoyed!  As always, if you have any (hi-res) photos you would like to share to possibly include on a blog post like this, or within the Gallery section of our website(s), feel free to email them to me.  Thanks in advance!
