Green Link will be premiering its new KnuckleHead Solar Support at the Construct Show, September 13-15, 2017, at the Rhode Island Convention Center in Providence, Rhode Island (US) in Booth #411.
The new head is designed to support solar arrays at a fixed 15-degree angle while also functioning as an elbow connector which fixtures perpendicular strut members along the same 15-degree plane. The heads are height adjustable up to 3” from the support point, but Green Link also offers extensions that can elevate solar arrays up to 18” off the roof’s surface.
Solar Supports are molded from glass-reinforced nylon and are impervious to weathering, freeze-thaw cycles, UV exposure and stress. The KnuckleHead universal base can be loose laid, but Solar KnuckleHeads should be mechanically attached using both screws as well as Chem Link M-1® Structural Adhesive/Sealant to establish a secure, waterproof installation
Green Link is also offering Halo Target Flashings to satisfy the warranty requirements of certain roofing manufacturers. The Halo Target Flashing is available for EPDM, Mod-Bit, TPO and PVC membranes and is heat welded or adhered to the KnuckleHead base and the roof substrate to prevent leaks.
In addition to Solar Supports, the KnuckleHead line includes other head designs suitable for pipes, conduit, struts and pavers. All head designs are mounted on a universal base which can be mechanically attached or bonded with adhesive. Each KnuckleHead can support up to 600 lbs.
