Solar Mounting Structure

Your solar panel system would not be complete without solar panel mounts(mounting structure). No matter what your roof style or ground mounting structure requirements are, there are numerous mount options available. Your solar installer will advise you on the best way to maximize the efficiency of your solar system.

In this blog, we’ll present an evaluation of solar panel mounting options, highlight the top three solar panels mount companies, and explore the benefits and drawbacks of rooftop versus ground-mounted solar systems.

What’s the difference between mounting and racking?

Mounts and racks for solar panels are pieces of equipment that keep solar panels in place.

Mounting allows the panels to be tilted for maximum solar energy generation, which can be depending on latitude, seasons, or even the time of day. Mounting is most commonly done on the roof with solar roof mounts or on the ground with ground-mount alternatives. Mounts and racking typically make up around 10% of the total cost of a conventional solar system.

Mounts and racking typically make up around 10% of the total cost of a conventional solar system.

The cost will be determined by the type of racking you employ, the amount of equipment required, and installation labor charges.

A solar panel mounting bracket is the most frequent method of module attachment. Heavy-duty mounting brackets are often composed of stainless steel or aluminum. All solar racking and mounting products, whether for the roof or the ground, must adhere to tight criteria to ensure durability and structural integrity in the face of heavy winds and weather.

Then, to help you comprehend the structure that will support your solar panels, we’ll go over the essential components that make up racking equipment.

What are the most crucial parts of a racking system?

The three major components of solar panel racking equipment are:

  • Roof fasteners
  • Clamps for modules
  • Mounting Rail Structure

Each tool is important in how the framework supports your panels, ensuring that you get the maximum solar electricity from them.

Roof Fasteners

Roof attachments are bolts that will be drilled into your roof to secure the racking system.

The holes created by these drills will be enclosed by ‘flashing,’ which a plastic or metal shield is fitted between tiles to keep water out of the hole. Roof attachments, on the other hand, vary by roof type.

Take a look at additional information about solar panel installation on clay tile roofs, metal roofs, and flat surface roofs to learn more.

Roof Fasteners

Clamps for Modules

The drilled-in roof attachments are attached to the mounting rails by the module clamps. For each angle and corner of the solar panel, there are a few different module clamp kinds.

Clamps for Modules

Mounting Rail Structure

The roof attachments are then attached to mounting rails through module clamps, which support the solar panels after drilling into the roof.

Although railless racking is an option, rails are the most popular since they can be attached to most roof angles and many installers are trained to use rail mounting techniques.

Mounting Rail Structure

While numerous companies offer solar panel mounts, only a few stand out in terms of quality. There are many types of mounting rail structures:

  • Mono-Rail Structures
  • Mini-Rail Structures
  • Long-Rail Structures
  • Inclined System
  • Standing Seam System
