Solar FlexRack Displays Ballasted Ground Mount

[Youngstown, OH] Solar FlexRack designed its FlexRack Series B ballasted ground mount for installation on landfills, brownfields and water-saturated sites where penetrating solar racking foundations are not allowed or are impractical. The new design adds a second vertical support that, depending on load conditions, can reduce ballast requirements. The two-support system also allows for a front and back, or split, ballast block arrangement. This ballast layout uses two smaller cement blocks that require lighter lifting machinery when low-bearing pressure requirements exist on the job site. FlexRack Series B mounts are compatible with all Solar FlexRack racking systems, including the G1, G2 and G3 products, which are preassembled at the factory, shipped as a single unit and “unfolded” at the job site.
