Mounting Systems

A mounting system is imperative for the design of your solar energy module! The mounting system is the base for your modules, it supports and attaches the modules to the roof or other surface. Mounting systems also help ensure that your modules receive the proper amount of sun from the tilt.

Different types of solar mounting

There are a few different mounting systems, including flat roof mounting, sloped or pitched roof mounting and ground mounting. Depending on the type of roof your building has or installing a solar field, the type of mounting system used will make installing your solar modules more effective and optimize the proper absorption of the sun for your needs.

Materials used

Many mounting systems are made out of structural-grade aluminum. This material is used because it is lightweight and will not rust or corrode as quickly as other metals.


Installation of mounting systems can be quick and easy, and will actually help to protect the shingles on your roof! SEAAA promotes partners with high professionalism and ethics to get the job done.
