With all of the solar industry companies striving to reduce the cost per watt, PACO Steel and Engineering is providing another smart solution to meet the challenge. Our unique manufacturing facility has the capacity to produce an unlimited number of custom shapes to match the job site specific loading conditions for solar applications. There is no waste
To determine the strongest “I” shape with optimal weight per foot for a ground mount solar post, PACO collaborates with the Structural Engineer of Record. Soil geotechnical report, regional seismic/wind demands and rack supplier specifications are used to proportion the section depth, flange width and material thickness to produce the most efficient site specific steel post. Significant savings are achieved from reduction of the weight per post, the amount of galvanization required and reducing the number of trucks needed to ship product to the job site.
