Hollaender Speed-Rail Makes Solar Panel Installation Simple, Affordable, and Long-Lasting

CINCINNATI, OH (June 26, 2009) - Hollaender has made solar panel installation a simple, flexible and very affordable process for integrators, installers and contractors in the commercial and residential markets. Using the company's popular Speed-Rail structural slip-on pipe fittings, together with 1 ¼, 1 ½ or 2 inch IPS aluminum, galvanized steel, stainless steel or black iron pipe, solar panel racking systems can be easily designed and built on site.

Speed-Rail fittings are strong and lightweight, and come in a wide variety of fixed and adjustable configurations, including the tees and flanges most commonly used in solar panel installations. The versatility of the fittings allows dependable support structures to be constructed virtually anywhere a solar panel needs to be installed. The same versatility also allows the systems to be easily uninstalled and moved if necessary.

The system installs quickly, securely and cost effectively, especially when compared to welded and other more complex systems. An integrated proprietary internal/external reverse knurl cup point set screw securely attaches the fittings to the pipe, and provides tremendous resistance to loosening even under high wind conditions. With full contact of the point of the screw to the pipe, the fittings resist pull out and rotational slip. The only tools needed for assembly are a saw, hex key and tape measure.

Made of 535.0 aluminum-magnesium alloy, Speed-Rail are the most corrosion resistant fittings on the market, and are backed by a 10 year warranty against corrosion. They will not rust, and can be used with galvanized steel or other metals without concern for galvanic corrosion.
