The Rayport AET-430 is the first and only Stainless Steel PV roof mounting system available in the US and Canada. The Rayport is wind-tunnel tested to 120mph and has provisions for direct mount to the roof. Integrated grounding clips and fasteners, along with only 3 part numbers to order contribute to industry-leading assembly times. Rayport fits most framed PV panels along with many frameless panels. Panels are aligned in landscape at a 10 degree tilt and also include EPDM rubber feet under each tray.
