Engineered solution for solar mounting systems:
Driven posts are a complete engineering solution. The quality is consistent from the first pile to the last and is tested prior to installation. Shape is maintained during installation. They do not bulge in soft soil conditions and are typically not susceptible to damage from the installation of subsequent piles. The pile driving process for solar mounting systems can be easily modeled prior to ground mount solar installation to determine adequate and economic equipment selection.
Economical solution for PV mounting systems:
Driven posts are usually the most cost effective foundation solution for ground mount solar. Pile capacity is easily verified by either static or dynamic pile testing. As an additional benefit, driven piles often gain capacity after installation.
Flexibility to mount solar structures:
Driven piles are installed to accommodate compression, tension or lateral loads. Piles can be selected to meet the specific needs of the solar structures, site conditions and budget.
Trustworthy and Available:
Pile driving equipment and installation methods are time-tested and well proven. Advances in materials, equipment, methods, and testing continually combine to improve the efficiency of driven post at solar panel installation.
Miscellaneous benefits of post driving for solar Racking systems:
Pile driving is relatively easy in many soils. Since the soil at the toe is in a compacted condition for displacement piles, end bearing can often carry a substantial load. Driven piles require no curing time and can be driven in natural sequence rather than skipping alternate piles, thus minimizing the moving of the equipment and speeding installation.
Driven pile installations usually produce no spoils for removal and therefore no exposure to, or costly disposal of, potentially hazardous or contaminated materials. The site is left clean and ready for the next construction activity.
