Intersolar North America: S:FLEX to Launch Lightweight, Low Ballast, Flat Roof PV Solar Mounting System

S:FLEX, Inc. will publicly introduce its lightweight, low ballast, client-customized, flat roof PV Solar mounting system LEICHTmount™, at Intersolar North America on July 8th, 2013.

LEICHTmount flat roof system

LEICHTmount™, (German for" lightweight" and "easy" mounting system), is a newly-developed, flat roof mounting system designed for hassle-free installation on flat roofs. Its lightweight, material-optimized design made ​​of aluminum and stainless steel is suitable for all flat roofs and is custom-manufactured for each project. LEICHTmount™ can be installed as a non-penetrating, low ballasted system, an anchored system with few strategic mounting points or a combination of both.

The variable row spacing and tilt angles between 0 degrees and 35 degrees, extendable base rails and individually customized projects with pre-assembled parts guarantees a simple, time-saving installation. In addition, it's adjustable to conform to unforeseen changes or obstructions on the roof. With its patented technology, LEICHTmount™ provides absolute stability and uses precisely calculated, strong, even-weight distribution.

All standard 60 or 72 cell framed PV modules can be set in portrait or landscape and clamps are placed strictly according to the module manufacturer's specifications, so the risk of micro cracks is minimized and warranty conditions are always met.

"This is revolutionary to the Solar Industry," states Ben Sclove of S:FLEX. "Just the fact alone that our customers can decide on portrait or landscape at any angle is unheard of. The amount of options with this system is so great and the fact that it is so easy to install is mind-blowing. I'm excited and proud to show it off at Intersolar, (North America)."

In cooperation with one of the largest independent aluminum extruders, LEICHTmount™ was developed by a network of experienced engineers from Germany, the USA and NABCEP-certified PV installers in North America. RWDI wind tunnel tested and approved, it was engineered to meet all wind and snow load requirements even in earthquake and hurricane prone regions.
