New mounting system from TTi provides for a 100% watertight system for shingle roofs

TTi has introduced its next generation of residential solar roof mount, the patented TTi Flat Jack Comp Shingle Mount. As a durable and reliable mount for installing PV panels on composition shingle roofs, the TTi Flat Jack now requires no shingle trimming or sealants, reduces labour costs and protects roofs.

Problem

Today, most houses in the US are designed with shingle roofs. As rooftop solar power systems become a more popular way for homeowners to cut their monthly energy expenses, the installation of solar panels on this type of roof can present a challenge for even the most experienced solar installer. A mistake means the homeowner is left with a leaky roof.

Solution

Made of galvanized steel and with only three primary components, the TTi Flat Jack anchors to the roof’s rafters providing a solid foundation and converting a shingle roof into a solar platform. The system is engineered with a breakthrough design and is built to withstand heavy vertical loads and high winds. It is compatible with all standard PV rail systems and can support other roof installations including HVAC equipment, antennae, solar thermal, or flagpoles.

Applications

Shingle-based roofs in the US. 

Platform

The TTi Flat Jack Comp Shingle Mount is ICC certified for residential solar installations. Compatible with standard PV rail systems to mount solar panels and comes with 10-year warranty.

Availability

January 2012 onwards.

  • Photovoltaics International 24th Edition

    Signs earlier in the year of the global industry entering a growth phase have now been confirmed beyond any doubt. Almost all the big-name suppliers have now announced some form of manufacturing capacity expansion, a trend that analysts agree will only gather pace as long as the levels of demand predicted over the next few years turn out to be correct.

  • Manufacturing The Solar Future: The 2014 Production Annual

    Although the past few years have proved extremely testing for PV equipment manufacturers, falling module prices have driven solar end-market demand to previously unseen levels. That demand is now starting to be felt by manufacturers, to the extent that leading companies are starting to talk about serious capacity expansions later this year and into 2015. This means that the next 12 months will be a critical period if companies throughout the supply chain are to take full advantage of the PV industry’s next growth phase.
