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.
