Eliminate Solar Rack Ballast and Reduce Rooftop Material Handling
PowerGrip™ Universal (PGU) is a commercial roof mount
system designed to secure solar racks and other equipment to any type of
commercial roofing system. PGU provides a secure connection directly to
the roof deck or structural members and is designed to reduce or
eliminate ballast in solar racking systems, so there’s less weight on
the roof and less material handling.
Made of heavy-duty cast aluminum, PGU units include a base ring
which is secured through the roofing cover and into the structural roof
deck, and a waterproof top plate.

PowerGrip Universal products are designed
as an alternative roof mount system for commercial solar racking
systems. As such, they may eliminate some or all of the ballast that
would otherwise be used. Always check with the roof system manufacturer
for installation criteria and written acceptance of the intended
application prior to installation. Failure to do so could void the roof
warranty. For structural applications, always consult a structural
engineer to installation criteria prior to application.
In addition to solar racking systems, PGU products can also be used
for many other roof-mounted applications, including pipe supports and
hangers, step crossovers, electrical conduit, raceways, satellite
dishes, small antennas and HVAC applications, among others.
