Solar Hot Water Racking
MOUNTING HARDWARE COMMERCIAL RACKS & STRUT
SunEarth’s versatile Solar Strut mounting hardware is the contractor’s clean-line choice for mounting SunEarth flat plate collectors.
- Solar Strut comes in a variety of standard lengths up to 27 ft. Available as mill finished or clear or bronze anodized.
- The profile is available in either 1 5/8 in x 1 5/8 in x 1/8 in, or 2 1/2 in x 1 5/8 in x 1/8 in
Collector mounting clips are attached to the Solar Strut with our exclusive stainless steel sliding nut and bolt assembly. Solar Strut and the stainless steel attachment assembly are engineered for use in the world’s most corrosive environments.
SunEarth RexRack sets the structural standard for residential and commercial liquid flat plate collector mounting hardware. RexRack is engineered to meet exacting contractor racking requirements for strength, simplicity, versatility, durability and cost. Constructed of corrosion resistant 6063-T6 anodized aluminum, RexRack is the right choice for challenging high wind and snow load conditions or everyday new or retrofit construction projects. RexRack provides solar professionals with an incredibly strong, versatile and modular residential and commercial racking solution. RexRack incorporates telescoping rear legs to accommodate uneven roof surfaces and to provide a range of slope adjustment for the array.
- RexRack is constructed from corrosion resistant anodized 6063-T6 structural aluminum.
- All fasteners are stainless steel.
- RexRack is the clear racking choice in areas that are prone to high wind loads.
RexRack is differentiated from traditional mounting systems by eliminating lateral runners on the roof surface. RexRack runners are fabricated from 6063- T6 aluminum and are located directly under the solar collectors. By relocating the runners to the backside of the collectors, a reinforced lattice is created between the two strut runners and the collectors that are clamped to them. The array itself becomes a single unified rigid body, much like unibody construction in newer automobiles. When the array itself is rigid, the rear legs need only carry the vertical load of the array, eliminating excessive cross bracing required for lateral loads in conventional racking systems.
Quick to install and simple to use the Landscape Racks incorporate SunEarth’s elegant clip and groove collector attachment system requiring no collector frame penetrations. SunEarth Landscape Racks are the choice for mounting SunEarth flat plate collectors tilted in a landscape orientation. Ideal for low profile mounts on flat roofs and for higher collector tilts on pitched roofs. Landscape racks can also be used for “saw tooth” mounting on East or West sloped roofs with the collectors tilted to the South in portrait orientation.
Constructed from corrosion resistant anodized 6063 structural aluminum and stainless steel fasteners; SunEarth Landscape Racks are engineered for challenging high wind and snow load conditions while the simplicity of design provides the best value solution for everyday new or retrofit construction projects. SunEarth’s Landscape Racks are available with three different leg lengths. For each leg length a range of tilt angles is achieved by changing the leg angle and bolt attachment hole on the supporting strut.
By selecting the appropriate Landscape Rack package, collector tilts between 20º and 60º from roof pitch can be achieved. SunEarth’s Landscape racks are the result of an exhaustive design and engineering process, including extensive FEA computer modeling, physical testing and structural engineering review. For a typical installation of a 4’x10’ SunEarth collector with up to 50º tilt, the rack will support a collector load of 108 lbf/ft² due to wind or snow loads while maintaining the structural integrity of the rack and collector system. Stamped structural engineering analysis and calculations are available for select States upon request.
