How Do Snow Guards Work? (Part 2: Pipe-Style)

Last time, in part one of this two-part blog series, we talked about snow guards and customer expectations, specifically in reference to the installation and use of pad-style snow guards. This time let’s shift the focus to pipe-style snow guards. Pipe-style snow guards act as a barricade system, preventing large chunks of snow and ice from sliding off a roof in the form of a roof KEEP READING

EcoFasten Solar to Debut FOUR New Products at Intersolar!

With just 20 days separating us from opening day of Intersolar N.A., the excitement in the air is palpable here at EcoFasten Solar. Everyone from Marketing (hey wait, that’s me!), to sales, production and shipping is getting stoked. That familiar July feeling is here….on the home front, that’s a very welcome feeling, especially up here in VT, where we still had snow on the ground in May. And KEEP READING

EcoFasten Solar Tradeshow Calendar: Remainder of 2017

As Q1 comes to a close, the crew at EcoFasten Solar finds ourselves with 3 tradeshows already behind us. I just can’t believe how fast the time goes! And even though we always send thank you and follow-up emails, I still would like to say in this (very) public forum, “THANK YOU”. Thank you to all current and future clients who stopped by our booths. Thank KEEP READING

Super Bowl LI: Powered by Solar

As Super Bowl LI nears, and as those of us in New England, Atlanta, and all over the country gear up for the big game, there is so much focus on the teams, while the stadium in which they’ll play is sort of in the shadows. But it shouldn’t be. NRG Stadium is home to the Houston Texans and RodeoHouston™. It’s also been a leader in KEEP READING

Leadership in Solar

Twelve days until Christmas. Can you believe it? I can almost hear the drummers drumming, and I find myself more excited for Christmas in my 40’s than I ever was as a kid. Why? I guess it’s because I have a 10 year old who still believes, and it’s amazing….no, it’s awesome….to see things through his eyes. As we get closer to the festivities, and the parties, KEEP READING

Compression: That’s What It’s All About

We love seeing everyone,  and we especially love showing everyone what’s so special about our line of products. We’re already counting down the days (49) and minutes (70,560) to SPI, and we’re raring to go! (If you’re there, come by #6320 KEEP READING

The Integrity of the Roof

Many of the solar installation professionals out there (hopefully) know that the biggest priority when installing an array is the act of maintaining the integrity of the roof. If you install an array and then weeks, months, or years later, the fastener points leak, your company’s integrity will most likely be on the line. No one wants that. Not you. Not your insurance company. Definitely not KEEP READING

Tile Installs Taking Way Too Long?

You know the drill.  You’ve gone through it countless times.  Mounting solar panels to a tile roof can be quite a hassle – all the cutting, drilling, grinding and replacing of tiles….it’s never ending, and it’s an additional liability for solar installers.  Not to mention the incredible amount of time it adds to an overall installation. It would be a much welcome, long overdue relief if KEEP READING

A Marriage of Sun and Snow

Sister Companies Alpine SnowGuards and EcoFasten Solar work very closely together – in fact, the birth of EcoFasten Solar was made possible entirely due to the existence of Alpine SnowGuards. Formed in 1998, Alpine SnowGuards very quickly became the industry leader in snow management systems.  Being founded by a former roofer provided the knowledge and precision-based skills needed to engineer systems that would not only work, but KEEP READING
