KB Racking Press Releases
First Ever Project to Utilize Four Different Mounting Systems
KB Racking’s easy to install product portfolio is on full display in Orangeville, Ontario with a 156 kW project that utilizes four of the company’s rooftop mounting solutions. Solar Provider Group’s challenging project consists of two standing seam roofs, one corrugated metal roof and a flat roof. The international EPC Company chose KB Racking as their mounting systems provider for their diverse product line and ability to work with challenging projects.
“We have been working with KB Racking since its inception in 2010 and have worked with almost all of their mounting systems. We have come to rely on their durable, modular designs and quick turnaround on engineering. We decided to take on this challenging project knowing that KB Racking would help us solve for the varied roof types involved and in the end the project was a great success. Our installers completed the mechanical installation of all four systems in less than 3 weeks.” AJ Kiani, Vice President, Global Operations, Solar Provider Group.
KB Racking’s Head of Product Development, Mohaned Kheir, comments, “The diversity of KB Racking’s product line is a result of the demands of our customers. We respond to the feedback from installers and adapt our designs to their needs and recommendations. This project with Solar Provider Group is a perfect example of that. We took a challenging site and broke it down into a number of solutions, each one unique to the pitch, roof type, and layout requirements of the roof.” The flat and standing seam metal roof portions of the project utilized two of KB Racking’s non-penetrating systems, SeamRack and EkonoRack. The corrugated metal roof required the company’s attached solution, BarnRack, known for its customizable roof hooks that minimize the potential risk of leakage.
