SchletterInc. will begin using a new KlickTop support beam calledFlexConsole as a standard component on its WindSafe ballastedroof-mounting system. The WindSafe is the ballasted or minimallyattached commercial flat roof racking system that includes a rear winddeflector to minimize wind uplift and down pressure loads.
TheKlickTop component utilized with the FlexConsole is a top-down assemblysolution that requires only an Allen wrench to tighten the modulesupport beam to the cross-rails.
This new design will increasethe pre-assembly from a manufacturing standpoint by roughly 80%, without increasing costs, and will decrease the installation time in the field, by almost 50%, according to Schletter.
