”We are dedicated to driving innovation in solar mounting technology and ensuring our customers remain at the forefront of the industry,” said Ernest Gallegos, director of products at Unirac. “Our partnership with S-5! enables us to deliver solutions that not only boost efficiency and ensure code compliance but also reflect our unwavering commitment to our customers’ success. We see this as a significant advancement in our ongoing efforts to provide the best experience for our customers and to offer peace of mind to consumers adopting solar energy.”

S-5! has extended its UL 2703 certifications for its clamps and brackets, which are now listed under Unirac’s certifications, a critical compliance requirement increasingly demanded by Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJs) nationwide. This certification ensures that these clamps are now fully approved for use with Unirac’s NXT UMOUNT and SolarMount systems. A comprehensive list of certified S-5! clamps is available in Unirac’s installation manuals.

“Why is this partnership so important? It’s because doing solar in a sustainable way, where the solar assets last as long as their intended time and purpose, is vital for the industry’s growth and customer acceptance,” Gallegos said. “Unirac and S-5! share a common vision of bringing solar energy to the masses in the most efficient, reliable and environmentally friendly manner. By adopting sustainable practices and adhering to industry-leading codes, we are not only ensuring the longevity of solar installations but also building trust and confidence among customers.”

Both companies are actively working to incorporate each other’s solutions into their respective design tools — Unirac’s U-Builder and S-5!’s Solar Calculator — to streamline the solar project design process.

“We are excited about taking our partnership with Unirac to a new level by incorporating our solar attachment solutions into their project design tools and technical certifications, making it easier and more efficient for design and permitting systems that utilize their rails and our clamps,” said Mark Gies, director of product management at S-5!. “We have always been driven to make processes as user-friendly as possible for installers and end-users by providing world-class support and technical data.”
