May 16, 2013 - Solar SpeedRack™, LLC announced today that its racking systems for use in residential and commercial projects have been certified for use in 12 states and ETL certification of the self-grounding spring will resume shortly. The system which requires virtually no installation tools is expected to dramatically reduce both the material cost and labor requirement for solar panel installation. "Although there have been significant cost reductions in the panels themselves, there has been little change in how they are installed until now," stated Shane Shamloo , President and CEO.
The Company's product line includes the patent pending Solar SpeedLatch which fits all PV panel sizes with thicknesses between 30mm to 50mm, requires little to no tools or additional parts for installation and the Solar SpeedBow, a universal and adjustable flat roof non-penetrating surface system is designed to fit all PV panel sizes with thicknesses between 30mm to 50mm, is adjustable between 0 degrees and 30 degrees. All systems are self-grounding and feature the Company's patent-pending latching systems which eliminated the need for additional installation hardware.
In addition to the residential and commercial products, Solar SpeedRack™, LLC has developed a full line of racking systems and accessories for large scale (utility) projects under the name Solar SpeedMount™. Its patent-pending slide and lock system uses less material than competitors' racking systems and will result in faster installation of panels thereby also reducing labor costs for installers.
The certification covers the states of Arizona, Colorado, California, Florida, Hawaii, Massachusetts, New York, New Mexico, Nevada, Oregon and Texas. "This is the first step in a global launch of our racking systems," added Mr. Shamloo. Solar SpeedRack™, LLC has developed a full line of racking systems and accessories for all types of solar projects.
