The UPM-8X holds a maximum array surface area of 87 sq. ft.  It can hold 8 small PV modules (65-140 watt).  Please call us for more details.

Made by General Specialties, the Universal Post Mount is the strongest you can buy. Adjusts easily to seasonal sun angle.  These Universal Post Mounts have a welded steel frame with 6061 aluminum rails for mounting PV panels. Designed for 35 lb./sq. ft. wind loading.  Stainless nuts & bolts are supplied to attach modules. Grade 5 and 8 assembly hardware is included. Vertical base pipe is not supplied, you obtain it locally.  Pipe size for this mount is 6"/Sched 40 or 80.  If you have any questions, please call us to discuss proper pipe sizing before installation. Very easy to assemble, great instructions with pictures included, holds panels securely for decades.

Tom at Backwoods uses two of these racks to hold 12 of his SolarWorld 175 panels at his full time off grid residence.  Two racks are used rather than one large one because the 6" base pipe is small and light enough to install by hand and the adjustments for seasonal tilt are easier to do with only one person. 

Please check the installation requirements for more information:
