10. What loads are PT mounting systems certified or rated?
There is no specific wind rating for solar mounting systems. Any mounting system can be designed to withstand wind loads of 240 mph and beyond. It is not a question of the mounting systems but a question of the costs and whether a building is capable of taking the loads aligned with a design for those wind loads. The modules usually do not withstand heavy wind loads.

11. What angle can PT tilt racking system adjust to?
PT tilt racking system can be adjusted from 0-60 degrees.

12.  Can PT mounting system be installed on any type of solar modules in the market?
Yes, PT mounting system can be used for any of modules including thin film.

13. How long does the PT pile on the ground mounted system usually need to be driven to?
About 4 to 8 feet

14.  Is the pile and ground screw of the PT ground mounted System galvanized?
Yes the post is galvanized to ensure the lifetime of the PV system.
We use hot dip galvanizing. The post is galvanized after all holes have been drilled and everything is cut. This results in an advantage of a closed galvanized coating.

15. How long is lead time for PT racking system to arrive on site?
Lead times depends on the project size and actrual arrival site.  Usually from 14 days to 40 days.

16. What ramming machine to drive the PT posts into the ground?
Many pile driver can do the piling.  The tool you needed is the shape of our pile to make attachment for your pile driver.

17. Aluminum components or steel components?
Steel is less expensive than aluminum In recent years.  Steel is more competitive than aluminum in terms of pricing.  However, aluminum component is easier in installation, it can reduce installation cost. Especially on large scale systems the handling of the material is a cost driver. Transportation costs are lowered using aluminum.

18. How many piece of piles usualy can ramm one pile driver one day?
It depends on the ground condition. Usually 200-250pcs one pile driver one day.
