ARaymond, global expert in plastic and metal assembly solutions, is partnering with Full Tilt by BCI, incorporating ARaymond’s PowAR Cinch and PowAR Wedge clips into new solar projects. Full Tilt launched its turnkey, fixed-tilt racking system in April 2021.
“The PowAR Cinch is a great product with a proven ability to reduce installation time,” said Chris Bartley, VP of business development at Full Tilt. “When used in conjunction with Full Tilt’s Longhorn panel rail, we are seeing an unprecedented reduction in module loading and fastening times.”
The Power AR Cinch offers fastening and grounding in a single operation, lowering the overall costs of PV installations.
“The PowAR Wedge system for First Solar Series 6 modules is even faster with 50% fewer clamps,” added Bartley. “These powerful product combinations will deliver tremendous value to EPCs and developers alike, and we are thrilled to bring them to the market.”
PowAR Wedge is specifically designed for First Solar Series 6 trackers and fixed-tilt structures. It also fastens and grounds in a single step, providing easy panel alignment — and in uneven terrain.
“ARaymond module clamps establish a strong but flexible mechanical attachment that saves time not only during installation but also throughout the project lifetime, as they do not require periodic torque checking,” explained Jean-Baptiste Chevrier, V.P. sales & marketing for ARaymond Energies.
