Eliminate solar rack ballast and reduce rooftop material handling.
PowerGrip™ Universal (PGU) is a commercial roof mount system designed to secure solar racks and other equipment to any type of commercial roofing system. PGU provides a secure connection directly to the roof deck or structural members and is designed to reduce or eliminate ballast in solar racking systems, so there’s less weight on the roof and less material handling.
Made of heavy-duty cast aluminum, PGU units include a base ring which is secured through the roofing cover and into the structural roof deck and a waterproof top plate.

PowerGrip™ Universal products are designed as an alternative roof mount system for commercial solar racking systems. As such, they may eliminate some or all of the ballast that would otherwise be used. Always check with the roof system manufacturer for installation criteria and written acceptance of the intended application prior to installation. Failure to do so could void the roof warranty. For structural applications, always consult a structural engineer to installation criteria prior to application.
In addition to solar racking systems, PGU products can also be used for many other roof-mounted applications, including pipe supports and hangers, step crossovers, electrical conduits, raceways, satellite dishes, small antennas, and HVAC applications, among others.
