ARaymond wedge clips to be used on solar racking systems 16 February 2022

Full Tilt by BCI is integrating PowAR™ Cinch and PowAR™ wedge clips from ARaymond Energies into upcoming solar projects including its fixed tilt solar racking systems.

Full Tilt was built with the installer in mind and is the latest advancement in fixed tilt solar racking technology. With over 30GW of solar racking delivered as a contract manufacturer and backed by decades of engineering and global supply chain experience, Full Tilt represents an optimum fixed tilt racking solution – which boasts an innovative yet straightforward design with fewer parts and rapid installation features along with manufacturer direct pricing.

Chris Bartley, vice-president business development at Full Tilt, explains: “Full Tilt has been working closely with ARaymond and we are excited to be the first fixed tilt solar racking system to integrate ARaymond’s PowAR™ Cinch and PowAR™ wedge clips. The PowAR Cinch is a great product with a proven ability to reduce installation time. When used in conjunction with the Longhorn panel rail, we are seeing an unprecedented reduction in module loading and fastening times. The PowAR wedge system for First Solar Series 6 modules is even faster with 50% fewer clamps. These product combinations will deliver tremendous value to EPCs and developers alike, and we are thrilled to bring them to the market.”

“ARaymond is excited to be working with the Full Tilt team,” adds Jean-Baptiste Chevrier, vice-president, sales and marketing for ARaymond Energies. “ARaymond module clamps establish a strong but flexible mechanical attachment that saves time not only during installation but also throughout the project lifetime, as they do not require periodic torque checking.”
