Ecolibrium Solar today announced the upcoming release of Ecofoot 2, a modular system that combines the benefits of polymer with integrated grounding and wire management.
This product utilizes the key components of the original Ecofoot: speed, low-parts count, and cost effectiveness. It also includes integrated grounding, wire management and increased weatherability.
Roof mounting systems that require penetration of the roof can mean problems and warranty claims over the years if the roof leaks at the penetration points, which is not uncommon over the typical 20 to 25 years warrantied lifetime of a solar installation.
The Ecofoot 2 module design has been formulated to eliminate customization and roof penetration, ensure compatibility with all roof types and guarantee of zero corrosion for the life of the system, the company says. Shipping and handling is simplified with the nestable body form, made from industrial grade polymer, which requires no grounding.
