46 M AY / J U N E 2 0 1 8 Quick Mount PV is simplifying your supply chain with QRail, its new rooftop racking system featuring patented QClick and QSplice technologies that sim- plify and speed installation. QRail combines with Quick Mount PV's waterproof mounts to create a complete, fully-integrated racking and mounting solution for installing solar PV modules on any roof. The patented QClick technology enables module clamps to easily click into the rail channel and remain in an upright position, ready to accept the module. QRail's QSplice is the fastest, most efficient splice in the industry — a tool-free, bonded, fully-structural splice that installs in seconds with no extra hardware required. Electrical bonding is fully integrated into every system component. All electrical bonds are created when the components are installed and tightened down. QRail is fully code compliant, certified to UL 2703, and backed by a 25-year warranty.

"We would like to see installers move away from the old-school aluminum flashing method and replace that with Microflashing technology," said Samantha Dalton, marketing manager for SolarRoofHooks. "Using Microflashing reduces installers risk too. When installers are forced to separate shingles to install alu- minum flashing, they often must remove nails from the roof.
