Unirac ISYS ground mount 2.0 for commercial solar installations
By Anthony Capkun
October 12, 2011 – Unirac Inc., a provider of infrastructure for solar power systems, unveiled the newest generation of the ISYS ground mount (IGM) racking system. IGM 2.0 is stronger, lighter and installs more quickly than its predecessor, says Unirac, adding it is engineered to accommodate virtually every foundation option. This version is constructed of roll-formed C-channel beams rather than the roll-formed and toggle-locked I-beams used for the earlier version, which cuts down on material use while maintaining the same structural integrity. Manufacturing time is slashed by as much as 50%, adds the company, and the new beams can be stacked interlocked, saving space and allowing more beams to be transported on fewer trucks.
