Class 3 galvanization is a stronger, longer-lasting zinc coating. Class 3 uses a thicker coating of 0.80 ounces per square foot. It uses Australian AS3566 standard raw materials. The difference is that the surface of Class 3 coating has been cured with one more layer....

While aluminum alloys are naturally resistant to corrosion, they're not invulnerable to it. This reality raises a key question: How can you determine aluminum’s resilience and resistance to corrosion when extreme temperatures and moisture combine? The answers start through reliable CASS testing. Whether a CASS test...

In solar PV industry, PV modules and inverters, get a lot of attention – modules can’t be blamed for being the most visible, shiny element of a solar installation. But racking are the behind the scene heroes that secure and tilt panels, while maximizing output...

Did you know why fasteners in our solar mounting systems are made of stainless steel 304, and 410? Sometimes 316? Here are some information and guidelines: Stainless steels are alloys of iron that has a minimum of about 12% chromium. The chromium is the alloying element...

Key consideration: It can be a challenge for installers to fasten standing seam clamps onto the roof seams because many clamps have narrow space that are too close to the roof sheet surface. Solaracks’ standing seam clamps are super easy to install, rotating connection enables wider...

During design of solar mounting system to site condition, we often ask customers what will be the design wind speed, many just Google weather data online and inform us design to 5m/s. This article is about solar system in high wind area, you will have...

With the outbreak of corona pandemic worldwide, we are all experiencing an unprecedented time. As the global economy defining which industries and businesses are essential and non-essential, we can see food, construction, manufacturing and energy are essential businesses. Companies in solar industry fall into construction,...

When comes with isolation, watertight purpose in solar mounting structures, there comes EPDM rubber. EPDM rubber (ethylene propylene diene monomer rubber), is a type of synthetic rubber, which can be used in a wide range of applications. This is an M-Class rubber where the 'M' in...

Research shows benefits in the solar sharing system, agrivoltaics.  The shading protects crops from sunlight and hot temperatures. The crops underneath creates temperature conditions ideal for solar panel performance. Combine solar with farmland is land scarcity solution Farmers in Japan can  generate solar electricity while growing crops on...
