Tucson, AZ (PRWEB) May 08, 2012
Schletter Inc., a leader in solar mounting systems, announces an expansion of its manufacturing capability in its Park@Sol solar carport product line. The Park@Sol is a complete ready-to-install mounting system, eliminating the need for costly on-site welding and third-party services.
The Park@Sol carport, a modular system, is designed to meet site requirements of each installation location while attaching to a variety of foundation types, depending on customer preference. The addition of a 5-Axis CNC milling and cutting center, with a workable length of 59 feet, enables longer extrusion processing, thereby increasing the span capability between the upright supports of the Park@Sol carports produced by Schletter.
“With our new semi-automated 5-Axis CNC milling and cutting center Schletter has one of the most technologically advanced systems available for fabricating large-scale products like our solar carport,” says Christoph Hackner, Vice President of production at Schletter. Mr. Hackner goes on to say that “in addition to faster processing and higher quality standards, our 5-Axis CNC machining center allows us to offer a more robust design, which reduces the material costs. We in turn pass those savings on to our customers.”
From a few kilowatts to large megawatt sized parking structures, the Park@Sol is available in three standard design options including single and double row arrangements and a unique design for north-south configurations, the carport system accommodates most module types. Options include a waterproof covering below the panels. Schletter further eases project management concerns by having in-house geotechnicians and licensed structural engineers for complete structural analysis calculations and construction drawings.
