OMCO’s Field-Fast Rack design provides a solution which includes various features to reduce installation costs and ensure proper construction. These features include preassembled clips that optimize packaging and shipping, reduces on-site labor requirements, accelerates total build time, and eliminates loose hardware. The slide and stay modules allow a simple two person installation that improves safety by utilizing no overhead lifting. The rail is designed to hold modules during installation through integrated locating/spacing features, engineered tabs for safety/speed, and ensuring optimal orientation for any framed module. The reverse clip install feature allows all work to be completed at ground level, eliminating lift equipment and consolidating tool requirements. The row pitch capabilities simplifies installation on uneven terrain, maximizes linear articulation, and utilizes a single point connection. Lastly, the OMCO Field-Fast Rack allows customers to buy direct from the manufacturer providing a cost advantage along with unparalleled customer support.

Preformed Line Products/DPW Solar

Maneuvering mounting rails can be the most demanding part of installing rooftop PV solar modules. But now installers can avoid that — and mount modules faster and easier — with the POWER DISK™ rail-less mounting system from Preformed Line Products’ DPW Solar. POWER DISK is a unique roof attachment that can go anywhere on residential rooftops. It does not need to be secured to rafters.

“Layout takes a fraction of the time and requires fewer components and tools than traditional rail-less systems,” says John Markiewicz, General Manager of DPW Solar. “The layout process is simple. You can place solar modules at precisely your preferred locations.”
