Mounting system prevents rack movement

OMG Roofing Products has introduced PowerGrip, a roof-mount system designed to secure rooftop solar racks and other equipment to TPO and PVC roof membranes.

PowerGrip reportedly provides a secure connection directly to the roof deck or structural members. Once secured and heat-welded in place, PowerGrips are said to prevent rack movement and remain watertight. They are compatible with most solar racking system types currently on the market and do not require field fabrication or assembly, reportedly saving time and labor. They also may be used with ballasted racking systems.

Each PowerGrip features a 9-inch-wide welding flange and a 1/2-inch-tall weather-resistant aluminum perch. An exposed 1-inch-tall by 3/8-inch diameter stainless-steel bolt provides a connection point for solar racks and other rooftop equipment.
