Watch: GameChange talks about Pour-in-Place mounting system

GameChange Racking has a ton of mounting/racking solutions (even adding solar trackers to the portfolio), but the company might be most known for its Pour-in-Place Ballasted Ground System. As you may know, GameChange says the Pour-in-Place is helpful for faster installs, uses up to 25% less concrete than other systems, has up to 12.5% slopes in all directions with no ballast supporting leveling material and up to 17.5% in all directions with minimal ballast supporting leveling material. At SPI 2015, we caught up with Derick Botha, VP of business development, for a brief walk through of the Pour-in-Place and its best applications.
