Below are photos of different designs of solar panel mounting racks. Most
of the time the style used is customer preference or project specifications.
Aesthetics, performance, wind rating requirements, or local conditions
(tree height, building shading, etc) dictates a particular rack style. When
quoting a project, please let us know if you have a specific type you’d prefer.
Specification sheets are available upon request.


TOP-OF-POLE: two styles

This mounting rack is like a roof over the top of the pole. The rack is secured to
the pole side, not on the top. The pole requires a cap.

The post top style uses a slip fitter that sits on top of the pole. It’s secured
to the pole top with set screws.

The side-of-pole rack is exactly that. Knee braces are used for additional support.
