Up To 35% Faster Installation

OMCO Solar is the one-source partner with total end-to-end manufacturing capabilities that’s changing the speed and cost of solar construction. Factory-direct, FIELD-FAST™ mounting system reduces on-site labor, cuts build-time and costs developers less at every stage of construction. OMCO Solar customers get higher-quality steel racking, precision engineering and pre-assembled components, leveraging only four basic components per rack.

OMCO Solar has leveraged over 9 GW of utility-scale experience and 60 years of custom roll-form manufacturing skills to develop the best solar racking structure on the market. With a proven capacity to deliver for projects of any size, OMCO Solar’s dedicated team knows each project front-to-back and provides technical knowledge that can’t be matched.

General Specifications

Field-Fast™ Solar Mounting System Exclusive Features

Driving Down the Cost of Solar

Our unique design and manufacturing capabilities have impacted all aspects of racking cost.

Lowest Installed Cost

Engineered for Fast and Easy Installation

We produce C-channel ground posts in-house from heavy galvanized steel (or post-dipped galvanized, if required).

Posts are pre-punched with only the hole configurations needed for your structure at your pitch.

No guess work. No on-site adjusting.

Tilt bracket and diagonal struts are attached with bolts in holes pre-punched for your requirements.

solar racking module rails

Holes for pre-assembled tilt bracket and diagonal struts at exact pitch requirements.

East-West Beams are easily mounted. Custom raised tabs in the tilt bracket hold beams in place to speed placement of hardware.

Only one set of hardware required to connect East-West Beam to Tilt Bracket.

Holes are located exactly where needed. No confusion. No delays.

Support beam tabs hold beam while hardware is installed.

Patented Module Rail Assembly

Delivers the fastest module installation in the Solar Industry

Both top and bottom of East-West beams arrive at jobsite with pre-threaded holes. Only two bolts required, one at each end.

Mod Rails are Custom-built for each installation to maximize time savings.

Module clamps are pre-installed at factory, minimizing loose hardware and assuring proper spacing.

Solar Module Installation…

Fastest and Safest in the Industry

  • A two person crew can quickly and safely install solar modules from the low side of the array.
  • Slide and Stay Modules: Solar modules slide into place and are held in position with tabs as the next module is retrieved and installed. Increased Safety. No overhead lifting!
  • Bottom module slides into place, pushing the other modules up into their final position.
  • Bottom module is held in place by another tab at the bottom of the Mod Rail Assembly.

Securing Solar Modules: Fastest and Safest in the Industry

After solar modules are in place, the lowest clamp on Mod Rail Assembly is tightened from above. All other clamps are accessed from below. All solar modules are installed from ground level.

FIELD-FAST™ Mounting System Technical Specifications

NameSpecification
MANUFACTURINGOEM direct, shipped to project sites from OMCO Solar’s manufacturing facilities, conveniently located nationwide.
PRE-ASSEMBLYEach rack typically consists of five to seven pre-assembled components, consisting of the lowest bill of materials items in the solar industry for rapid site staging and installation.
MATERIALSGalvanized steel, per ASTM A653 – latest edition
HARDWAREZinc-coated to 15 microns. The system has the least amount of loose parts of any racking on the market. Hardware arrives pre-sorted for easy identification.
MODULE COMPATIBILITY:Any commercially available, framed flat-plate module.
INSTALLATION RATESBuilt-in adjustability features account for post misalignment and terrain elevation changes with no additional components. Proprietary custom slot configurations come standard on every mounting system.
TABLE CONFIGURATIONThe fastest module installation in the industry. Additionally, safety is enhanced because overhead lifting equipment is not required; two installers can fully erect the system while standing on the ground.
TERRAIN ARTICULATION2 in portrait is standard. Other configurations evaluated per site-specific requirements.
