After many years of gathering feedback from installers, SunModo has unveiled SMR, a solar rooftop rail system. With “Pop-On Clamps” and L-foot adaptors, solar installers can mount, adjust and secure PV panels with a single tool.
“We are excited with the early response to SMR as our next-generation rail system that saves time and money while achieving maximum performance, which is exactly what our installers want,” said Steve Mumma, general manager of SunModo. “Changing racking systems is something most installers are reluctant to do; but when a new option comes along that dramatically reduces cost, speeds installation, and increases reliability any installer who is serious about their business must consider it.”
SMR was designed to both lighten and strengthen the system. Among the first to use the new rail system was Jon Lange, president of Sunergy Systems, a solar installation company serving the entire Puget Sound region Seattle area since 2005.
“We love the new SMR rail system. It is unbelievable how light the rail is,” he said. “Amazingly, it is more rigid than the HR rail on a steep roof with the guys standing on it.”
Introducing SMR is part of SunModo’s initiative to revamp its entire racking product line to become easier and more affordable in the highly competitive solar industry, the company stated in a press release.
