FS Systems

The FS System, with over 6GW of installed power worldwide, reduces installation time and costs.

FS Ground Mounting System

The FS System is designed to be the most cost-competitive solution for large-scale solar mounting systems, with proprietary aluminum extrusions to reduce material usage and the highest level of in-house pre-assembly on the market. The result is an attractive solar mounting system installed quickly and with the durability to last.

System Benefits

  • ETL Classifed
  • High level of pre-assembly for fast installations
  • Easily accessible for ground and system maintenance
  • Certified engineering by professional engineer licensed in the location of the project
  • 20 year warranty
The FS System Ground Mounting System

For use with nearly any module

Proprietary post design and rail extrusions make the FS System lean, solid, and easy to install.

Five simple steps are done in the field:

  • Drive the post into the ground
  • Mount head assembly
  • Place the support on the post attachment head and bolt the lower strut
  • Insert the locking plate at the attachment head
  • Install the cross beams—that's it!

Geotechnical Testing

To determine the number of posts required and embedment depth, geotechnical testing is required for all project sites. Such testing generally requires numerous soil samples and subsequent soil classifications, which are the basis for determining the quantitative bearing capacity.

Testing Includes:

  • Vertical pull-out tests
  • Lateral load tests
  • Independent laboratory analysis of soil classification, corrosion potential, gradation, and soil plasticity
