CONTOUR D

DCE Solar’s Contour D Ground Mounting Structure provides even more flexibility and energy yield from the industry’s most topographically adaptable PV system.

The Contour D System:

  • Possesses a Dual-Tilt design which maximizes solar collection hours with minimal hardware
  • Suitable for all soil types
  • Makes wiring easy by having built-in wire support, requiring no further wire trays

CONTOUR GS

DCE Solar’s Contour GS (Ground Screw) Mounting Structure requires no additional module grounding accessories and minimal ground wiring with no further wire trays needed.

The Contour GS System:

  • Has a single point purlin connection which allows the rack to pivot and seamlessly follow the topography up to a 20 percent grade
  • Possesses a top beam adapter that gives unmatched adaptability and ease of alignment
  • Increased structural stiffness yielding a compact design with the nesting of zees & cees

CONTOUR DB

DCE Solar’s Contour DB (Driven Beam) Mounting Structure can be installed in any soil type and has truss members constructed from G115 galvanized steel. The beams are hot dip galvanized to meet ASTM A123.

The Contour DB System:

  • Panel assembly jig is unmatched in panel assembly time and the aesthetics are leading edge for other panels to follow
  • Requires no additional grounding components such as weebs, star washers, and grounding lugs so it reduces labor time, hardware, and cost for additional bonding components
  • One piece design reduces total system components and hardware in comparison with competitors systems

PIVOT POINT ADJUSTMENT

Single point purlin connection creates unmatched system compatibility with grade

JIG ASSEMBLY

Allows for greater module installation efficiency which reduces labor costs significantly. Ensures perfect panel alignment the first time, negating post-installation adjustment and is provided at no additional cost.
