Product Updates

IronRidge is expanding its XR Rail Family to include three size options: XR10, XR100 & XR1000. These options replace XRS & XRL.

In addition, we’ve improved both the pricing and features of many of the other Roof Mount products.

IronRidge XR Family of rails

Value Proposition

Each XR Rail size is targeted to support specific spans and design loads, while minimizing material costs.

Using Design Assistant, we evaluated the cost of 36x array configurations at 6’ spans. This analysis included pricing of the rails, L-feet, clamps, splices & lugs.
