Unirac strikes deal to license Solar Stack’s ballast-free, zero penetration roof mount


Unirac, a North American solar PV mounting manufacturer, and Solar Stack, a Florida-based manufacturer of the non-ballast, non-penetrating solar mounting solution, have announced an exclusive global license deal for the Solar Stack product.

With the signing of this technology deal, the two companies are poised to expand on the momentum set by the founders of Solar Stack. The deal with Solar Stack continues Unirac’s series of acquisitions, strategic partnerships and new product and service introductions, part of Unirac’s Better Solar Starts Here program to provide customers with the best installation experience for residential
and commercial solar.

“We are very excited to announce the partnership with Solar Stack as our quest continues to demonstrate our market leadership,” said Peter Lorenz, CEO, Unirac. “Continuous improvement and innovation are the keys to pushing the market forward, and this partnership is yet another example of that.”

Tim and Michelle Graboski, two of Florida’s most influential roofing veterans, founded Solar Stack with a singular vision: providing solar installers with a groundbreaking but simple mounting solution that does not penetrate the roof. The founders applied knowledge gained from more than 30 years in the roofing industry and Tim’s service on the Florida Building Commission to develop a structural attachment of proven, code-approved commercial foam adhesive that bonds to the roof surface and anchors the patented Solar Stack pedestal.

The product is equally well-suited for fastened tile roofs, like those in Florida, and commercial flat roofs. It has had tremendous success in Florida, where it holds the most stringent certification for use in high-velocity hurricane zones, the company said in a press release.

“A partnership with Unirac was the obvious choice, and we felt strongly that they were the ideal partner,” said Tim Graboski, CEO of Solar Stack. “We both share a passion and commitment for bringing innovation to the market and serving our customers, and we are very excited to see Solar Stack in the Unirac family of products.”
