The Ready Rack mounting hardware is designed for both large utility scale projects and small commercial projects. The hardware design is a simple configuration that allows contractors to install at lighting fast speed with integrated adjustability features for challenging sites. The small helical anchors and quick install cross bracing make the simple system extremely robust even for high wind zones.
The mini-tilt brackets are adjustable and allow for quick field alignment of the post height. This allows the anchor posts to be installed rapidly and any terrain variation can be accounted for by simple adjusting the tilt bracket up or down. This allows the installer to easily achieve the best possible visual aesthetics on an ungraded site.
The AP Alternatives helical anchor can be installed with our fully automated dual anchor drivers for large projects or our single point units for small projects. With APA's anchoring system, we are ale to install at shallow depths of 36 inches, depending on soils and frost. This technology allows for a fast, low cost installation.
AP Alternatives has designed and manufactured a unique module specific clip that is user friendly and cost effective for installers. The clip allows for a rapid installation while providing a firm grip on the module for long term and trustworthy support. The clip is the only component installers need to lock modules in place.
