AGAWAM, Mass. -- OMG Roofing Products of Agawam, Massachusetts has introduced the PowerGrip Plus Roof Mount System, a watertight structural attachment system used to secure ballasted solar racks and other equipment to roofs covered with thermoplastic (TPO and PVC) membranes. PowerGrip Plus is designed with wind performance in mind and offers ultimate tensile strength of 2,000 lbf. and ultimate shear strength of 1,075 lbf. Properly installed PowerGrip Plus units reduce rack movement and remaining watertight.
PowerGrip Plus units are easy to install, saving both time and labor when compared to alternative options.

The exposed 1 inch tall and 3/8 inch diameter bolt and mounting stand are made from corrosion-resistant stainless steel and aluminum alloy for superior long-term performance.
In addition to ballasted solar racks, PowerGrip Plus units can be used for other roof mounted items such as pipe supports, step crossovers, raceways, satellite dishes, small antennas and HVAC applications.
PowerGrip Plus and its predecessor, PowerGrip will both be on display at the OMG Roofing Products booth (#9138) at InterSolar North America, July 8-10, San Francisco.
