UniRac Offers New Solar PV Mounting System

December 3, 2003 [SolarAccess.com] Albuquerque, New Mexico-based UniRac has introduced SunFrame, a PV mounting system, at Ladera Ranch, California, where William Lyon Homes chose it to mount Sharp modules on the new homes. UniRac said they put aesthetic values at the top of the list of design criteria, making SunFrame as natural a part of the roof as a skylight, as aluminum components are dark bronze or clear anodized to match module frames — and Rails, cap strips, and end caps pull arrays into clean gap-free units. The array’s leading edge stands as little as seven eighths of one inch above the roof, which is low enough for a building-integrated look and high enough to promote cooling air flow. SunFrame is also PE certified to meet the California Building Code and UniForm Building Code when installed in compliance with the assembly manual. UniRac said that one person could do the installation without difficulty. UniRac also provides planning documentation for installers.
