SolarWorld Shifts to Rail-Free Quick Mount PV Systems

published: 2015-08-21 17:12

SolarWorld announced its alignment with an industry trend away from use of long rails in mounting solar panels and toward rail-free racking in light of the latter’s cost savings in materials, labor, storage and shipping. Innovative rail-free racking attaches the solar panels directly to individual roof mounts, instead of conventional, long rails.

“Our rail-free racking systems offer lower material costs, reduce installation time on often hot roofs, take up a much smaller warehouse footprint, cost significantly less to ship and, at the end of the job, look better,” said Ardes Johnson, U.S. vice president of sales and marketing for SolarWorld.

In SolarWorld’s drive to bring the market’s best products to installers, SolarWorld announced an alliance with Quick Mount PV, a U.S. manufacturer of solar roof mounts based in Walnut Creek, Calif. Quick Mount’s patented Quick Rack rail-free system upholds the company’s best-in-class standards of quality and customer experience.

Anne Wright, vice president of sales for Quick Mount, commented, “With simplified ordering from SolarWorld, we believe installers can save time and money on every installation, and sell more solar. When good companies work together, the industry moves forward.”

As a result of the alliance, SolarWorld will offer the Quick Rack rail-free systems alongside other best-in-industry residential, commercial and utility-scale solar products.
