Ground Mount PV Support System
FAS Rack from Legrand, is a new line of supports for ground-mounted photovoltaic arrays designed to meet the needs of a growing market for solar power generation in the US and Canada. FAS Rack speeds up the install process for utility-grade photovoltaic installations, reducing overall project costs. In many cases, on-site racking labor is reduced up to 75%.
“Our goal has always been to market product lines that help reduce installation time at the jobsite,” said Tim Place, President of Legrand/Cablofil. “And FAS Rack has exceeded our customers expectations.” To date, FAS Rack has been used on a number of solar arrays throughout North America, totaling more than 60 MW.
FAS Rack is pre-engineered for each specific project, eliminating on-site engineering adjustments, and can be installed with two-man crews using simple tools. FAS Rack features a number of patent-pending innovations including pier caps that are designed with built-in stops to make grid table positioning easier. All grid tables are pre-assembled to eliminate labor-intensive “stick built” construction methods. Plus, all hardware is RoHS compliant, so the entire system contributes to LEED points.
