LOS ANGELES, June 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- KB Racking, a leading North American solar mounting systems company, just completed the certification process of its EkonoRack flat roof mounting system according to the UL-2703 industry standard, as tested and certified by Intertek.
Intertek performed extensive system testing on all of the EkonoRack's components in order to classify it according to the UL industry standard. The certification signifies that the EkonoRack mounting system meets all of the electrical safety standards for "Rack Mounted Systems for Photovoltaic Modules" anywhere in the United States. ETL's state of the art electrical bonding tests have determined that installers can ground an entire array, regardless of size, with only one grounding connection.
"Achieving nationally recognized certification with the EkonoRack guarantees the highest safety standard for our customers," Peter Aulich, COO of KB Racking, comments. "Moreover, being able to ground only once per array significantly reduces the amount of parts and labor required to install the system, reducing our customers' costs by at least 5 Cents per Watt."
KB Racking's EkonoRack consists of only three major components, making it the simplest ballasted mounting system on the market to receive ETL Certification. KB Racking will start producing the EkonoRack flat roof mounting system with the ETL Certified stamp by July, 2013. To view EkonoRack's listing in the Intertek Directory click here.
