Back-2-Back Rail Our panel slide-in system

Back-2-Back Rail Our panel slide-in system

Our unique Back-2-Back Rail ground mount system distinguishes itself by the fact that it does not only make the insertion of panels extremely easy but it also considerably saves time and cost on installation.

Panels are simply slid into the rail and are fixed with only one security screw from the back – no clamps are required! The Back-2-Back Rail system comes with a 25 year structural warranty.

We have had feedback from our clients that panels could be assembled up to four times faster than with conventional systems.
