UNIRAC unveiled a collection of new products and accessories, including SFM INFINITY, a rooftop solar PV mounting system that the company says optimizes the solar installation process. The announcement is the latest round in UNIRAC’s Better Solar Starts Here program to help customers capture the next level of cost savings and grow their solar businesses.
“This third generation mounting system transcends racking to benefit solar installers across their value chains, by reducing logistics costs, eliminating rough-in inspections, and enabling two installations per crew per day,” says UNIRAC CEO, Peter Lorenz.
Over the last eighteen months, UNIRAC has executed a series of new acquisitions, strategic partnerships and new product launches to expand its offering to provide a more holistic solar installation experience.
Along with SFM INFINITY, UNIRAC unveiled E-BOSS, a line of electrical balance of systems components, and Pro Series SOLARHOOKS, a line of strengthened solar attachments for tile roofs.
The program also includes an expanded product portfolio, the result of acquisition, licensing and voice of customer product development, installer-focused training, and UNIRAC’s transferable 25-Year full system warranty.
Sean Linn, UNIRAC’s COO, explained that the company enhanced its U-Builder solar design software, doubled the size of its product development team and hired six in-region field support specialists to provide hands on installer training.
“The results are tangible: for example, we applied our technical excellence to strengthen our SOLARHOOK tile roof attachments by up to 60% over standard tile hooks, and later this year we will expand our product portfolio with a low ballast flat roof solution, attachments for metal and commercial flat roofs, and installer support services,” he says.
