TerraSmart has developed its TF2 fixed-tilt ground-mount racking system that is claimed to offer faster installation times with 66% less hardware than TerraSmart's previous racking system.
Tackling a wide range of ground conditions can lead to PV project delays as selection of the correct foundation and mounting system has to be assessed. Extra costs can be incurred with pre-construction civil work. Having a foundation system and mounting system that can accommodate any ground conditions, reduces selection time and de-risks projects.
The TF2 racking system combines with the widely deployed ‘TerraSmart’ ground-screw foundation, making it suitable for difficult soil conditions. In addition, the new solution offers installers an additional 30% in cost reductions on foundation installations, according to the company. With slope capability up to 36%, the TF2 significantly reduces pre-construction civil work and potential unknown delays and costs due to subsurface obstructions uncovered during construction.

The TF2 has passed the UL 2703 Edition 1, complies with the NEC and has undergone wind-tunnel tests. The TF2's lighter yet stiffer components make it safer and easier to handle onsite as well as more economical shipping. Integrated wire management system accommodates cables to provide hassle-free wire management. Simplified hardware stack includes threaded inserts and two-part hardware stacks that make connecting TF2 components easier and quicker than previous versions.
