Unirac Launches Improved ISYS Ground Mount 2.0 for Commercial Solar Installations
Unirac, Inc., today announced the newest generation of its premier product for commercial installations, the ISYS Ground Mount racking system. Available now for order, ISYS Ground Mount (IGM) 2.0 is stronger, lighter and installs more quickly than its predecessor. Engineered to accommodate virtually every foundation option, IGM 2.0 easily adapts to any project site by allowing customers to select the most cost-effective foundation system for their specific project site.This
“Our team of dedicated engineers have worked tirelessly to make IGM lighter, faster and more conducive to shipping and packaging,” said Juan Suarez, Unirac’s senior director of engineering and program management. “With these improvements we are able to provide even greater value to our customers, by improving cost-efficiency without compromising on product quality. We believe the ability to quickly install superior products that perform under the harshest conditions are imperative to the success of the solar industry.”
The Unirac ISYS Ground Mount 2.0 allows for the pre-assembly of module columns prior to installation, or parallel installation of foundations and racking simultaneously. Contractors can build the subassembly or grade land while assembling all modules to Unirac’s rails in controlled environments. These options offer a shorter project turnaround time and reduce field labor, saving customers money and allowing for faster return on investment.
“We evaluated the manufacturing time needed to roll form the new ISYS Ground Mount 2.0 beams versus the previous design,” said Rob Touzalin, president of Painesville, Ohio-based American Roll Form, a full-service custom metal fabricator. “By eliminating the toggle lock — traditionally a bottleneck — in the new design, we’re able to double our output of the new rails, effectively cutting production time in half and delivering twice as quickly to project sites.”
