Unirac’s new single-SKU flat-roof attachment is changing the game in commercial solar. That may sound like a big claim, and so we welcome you to learn about it in detail with the insights of Chem Link, manufacturer of the sealant that helps make Flashloc™ RM unique.

On July 29, 2020, at 10:00 a.m. Mountain Time, Tristen Foley of Unirac and Rick Berthiaume of Chem Link will present an in-depth webinar showing how you can save time and money with this simple, strong, easy-to-install attachment for any type of flat roof. You’ll also learn about Chem Link sealants and how to select and use attachments in general. (Register Here.)

Flashloc™ RM develops on the technology pioneered last year by Unirac in its Flashloc™ mount for rail-based systems. The RM product is a powdercoated cast-aluminum spoked disc for flat roofs with a host of benefits that make it unique, including:

  • No membrane heat welding and no adapters required.
  • Lightning-fast installation with reliable and proven Chem Link sealants, saving time and money.
  • 6,600 lbs. of ultimate uplift offset.
  • A new standard of affordability.
  • Included hardware.
  • Holes for up to eight fasteners.
  • Unirac’s standard 25-year warranty.

Chem Link was founded in 1990 and formulates and manufactures high-performance adhesives, sealants, coatings, and related products through three business units: construction & maintenance; private label; and industrial/OEM. Proactive environmental policies and safety policies meant to protect installers are among the company’s major focus areas.

Our experienced installers say the combination of the form factor plus the Chem Link sealant is a winner. Tom Talmage, Unirac Installer Sales Specialist for the Southeast, says the new Flashloc™ RM is something he wishes he’d had on the roof sooner.

“When I think about this product,” he says, “the first thing that comes to mind is versatility. It’s not something you can use only on a commercial racking system application or only on a residential racking system application—it’s something you can use on a wide array of racking systems. So, if you’re installing a ballasted system, you can attach this to your roofing surface and then thread directly through to your strut to attach your strut to it. And if you’re installing on a residential flat roof, and it’s a tilt leg system, you can attach this to it and then attach your L-feet and tilt legs directly to this.”

Talmage says adding in the 25-year warranty of Unirac products, combined with the elimination of the hassle of adapters, makes this a clear choice over existing attachments.

Flashloc™ RM will be shipping in the near future, but if you’d like to learn more about the product and try it out before then, please sign up for a sample. If you have a project that requires attachments, you can reach out to our Commercial Solutions team at CommercialServices@Unirac.Com for assistance.

“We’re definitely hoping everyone can make it to the webinar on the 29th,” says Foley, Associate Product Manager. “We think we have a tremendous value proposition for this product, so we’re really looking forward to telling everyone about it to help them start saving time and money.”
