The InstaRack™ is compatible with most solar panels on themarket today, allowing installers to continue working with themanufacturers of their choice while greatly reducing labor overhead.
TheInstaRack™ is a one-piece molded unit that requires only one tool. Theflexible mounting system works with all current 175 to 230 W PV panelson the market. The InstaRack™ is manufactured from high densitypolyethylene plastic (HDPE) and made from a minimum of 35% recycledmaterials, resulting in a lightweight, easy to stack and ship unit witha lower carbon footprint than conventional steel or aluminumalternatives.
