UK Wire Fastening Company gripple launches new products for the ground-mounted solar market.
“Born from our experience in the seismic and civil industries, dealing with secondary protection against external forces from earthquakes and force protection, Gripple is in a great position to understand how to reinforce structures,” said John Butterworth, head of infrastructure at Gripple. “Gripple understands how bracing and anchoring work in these difficult environments and how the external forces are calculated when specifying products, while keeping the incredibly high safety factors in mind. All this knowledge is transferred to the solar market with proven products.”
Gripple’s lightweight yet durable solutions are proven in demanding seismic and civil applications, reducing environmental impact on the construction site by minimizing the need for heavy machinery, concrete and construction site earthwork.
“We design and manufacture everything ourselves and have a good vertically integrated supply chain,” says Butterworth. “Gripple has people worldwide with local knowledge to help understand local standards and local system needs. We act on a project basis and work with your team on the best solutions.”
Turnkey kits designed to save time, money and increase installation efficiency are now available for the US solar market.
