A Bracket Guide For You – The Solar Installer

With so many solar roof mount and bracket options on the market these days, it’s always wise to do your homework when selecting what products you’ll use on your next project. Since every project is different, and every roof is different, versatility is key.

We want your next install to go as smoothly as possible, that’s why when we’re engineering our systems, we always keep you in mind. Our President & founder started his career as a roofer back in the 70’s, so maintaining the integrity of the roof is always first and foremost. We don’t want you to use products that won’t work, and ultimately, we want you to be happy!

The extensive EcoFasten Solar line is comprised of a series of product systems characterized by roof type application. Each system can be paired with many of our brackets options, allowing installers to attach EcoFasten Solar roof mounts to, well, just about any racking option.

Our patented, watertight compression technology does exactly what we say it’ll do.

So, how does the technology work? Take a look at an example below – it’s actually pretty straightforward:

Our systems work with a wide variety of our compression bracket options, including:

L-102-3

L-102-3 - Copy

When it comes to bracket options, the L-102-3 is a popular choice.  No adaptor plate is necessary and the two attachment points on the vertical leg will give you height adjustability. The L-102-3 is compatible with our GreenFasten™ – GF1 for composition shingle roofs, QuikFoot for shingle or slate, Eco-44R-NDD for SIPs panels, our Tile Flashing System, and with our CorruSlide, and Simple Seal System for metal roofs.  This bracket is also available in a 6” option (L-102-6).

SCL-101-3

SCL-101-3 - Copy

Compatible with the same systems as above, and featuring an open, slotted attachment point on the vertical leg that allows for a wide range of adjustability, the SCL-101-3 makes it easy.  All you have to do is attach your EcoFasten roof mount to the roof, pre-set the hardware to the rack, and drop the rack into the pre-set SCL-101-3.  Easy peasy!

CompSlide

CompSlideDual

The CompSlide is one of our newest bracket options that anyone using a shared rail system really should be using. The CompSlide can be positioned within a 360° radius, allowing N-S and E-W orientation. One lag bolt is all that’s needed, and the efficient 4” length will give you just the range of adjustability you need.

CP-SQ-Slotted Adaptor Plate

CP-SQ-Slotted - Right

Our CP-SQ-Slotted Adaptor Plate allows installers to use 3rd party L-Feet with many of our flashings. The milled counter-sink on the bottom of the plate ensures watertight protection when fitted with an EPDM rubber bushing, while the channel along the top of the plate allows moisture and water to flow out and away, rather than pooling around the fastener head.  We also manufacture the F-111-A adaptor plate which allows for additional racking height.

We all know that low-slope roofing requires specifically designed and engineered systems, so attachment can be made directly to the wood decking / blocking. Our Eco-44 system for low-slope roofing can be paired with different bracket or stand-off options which provide customized solutions.

P-6-CSK

P6andP3

 

Our P-6-CSK 6” compression post makes it possible to flash the roof mount with a membrane roofing manufacturers pipe boot, split boot, or witches hat to comply with manufacturers warranties. We also offer a 3” version, the P-3-CSK.

C-102-6

If you’re looking for the option of attachment to the side of the post OR to the top of the post, while maintaining a low profile, then the C-102-6 C-bracket is what you’ll want to use.  This bracket is an ideal add-on to the P-6-CSK compression post, and is designed for use with our Eco-44.

SIM-Support

The SIM-Support is a stand-alone bracket with a unique center lift, that utilizes our Simple Seal bushings, creating our patented, watertight compression seal. Engineered to be used on metal corrugated roofing, fastener spacing allows for 2 fasteners per metal purlin.

Our Tile Flashing System (for Flat, W or S tile profiles) is compatible with many bracket options, including our new 7” Tile Top Slide. 360° positioning and N-S or E-W orientation gives you a customized solution that is fast, effective, and uncomplicated. One-step lag bolt installation is a breeze.

We’ve even developed a solution for mounting conduit on composition shingle and metal roofing:

Conduit Mount Bracket

ConduitMount

 

The Conduit Mount Bracket is raised to lift electrical conduit up and off the roof, preventing overheating, and the system utilizes the same compression technology as our other compression brackets. This bracket is also used by the HVAC, electric and solar hot water heating industries.

Our patented designs give you confidence in knowing that your roof mount system will remain impermeable even under the most extreme conditions. A precision design process, technical research and development, and extensive testing means that each and every EcoFasten Solar product you use was designed with the highest standards, is code-compliant, and follows roofing industry best practices. Like I said, we want you to be happy!
