The Spice Solar Solution
With over 35 years of rooftop solar experience, we took a holistic view of how solar modules should be installed and created a complete integrated solution. To build a better mounting system, rather than starting on the roof with standard panels, we focused on the solar panel manufacturing process. By redesigning the frames of the solar panels, higher load capacities are achieved — while at the same time reducing costs and supporting installations in all wind and snow zones, in all orientations and on all roof types. Spice Solar with Built-In Racking™ is the only installation technology that quickly connects and grounds modules in all orientations and roof types, with industry-standard roof mounts, flashings and tile hooks; even in hurricane and blizzard conditions.
All the Benefits – Without the Limitations

- Installs in Portrait, Landscape and mixed orientations
- Installs on all roof materials
- Integrates module grounding – One lug bonds the entire array
- Fast layout and leveling
- Fewer roof penetrations for faster installs
- Easily remove modules from the middle of a row
- Unprecedented strength over rackless systems – 5400 Pa wind and snow loads
- UL 1703 and 2703 compliant, including new fire codes
- Works with popular microinverters, optimizers and wiring
- No special tools required
Spice Solar Modules
Unlike rackless systems that simply clamp on standard module frames limiting system strength to the module frame, Spice Solar Certified Modules are manufactured at the factory by leading solar module companies, utilizing our patented Built-In Racking™ for unprecedented quality and strength.
Spice Solar Mounting Components
Mounts With 2 Simple Parts
The Spice Solar E-W Splice quickly connects modules side-by-side in portrait, landscape or mixed orientations. The E-W Splice automatically aligns modules and audibly snaps into place, and is then tightened from the top with standard tools.
The Spice Solar N-S Bracket mounts on L feet and provides a rigid and grounded connecting point between module rows, minimizing the number of mounting points. The N-S Bracket automatically aligns rows and is tightened from the top with standard tools.
Spice Solar Accessories
The Spice Solar L Foot connects securely to the side of each Spice Certified module. The L Foot can be attached to a variety of roof mounts, including flashings, standoffs and tile hooks. Thick base of L Foot resists high pry forces, and side ridges engage with matching ridges on module frame for added vertical strength.
INVERTER OPTIMIZER BRACKET
The Spice Solar Microinverter-Optimizer Bracket connects securely to the side of each Spice Certified module. The bracket is designed to fit all popular microinverters and optimizers.
OFFSET L FOOT
The Spice Solar Offset L Foot is used when the rafter location is aligned between two modules, making it difficult to attach the L Foot to the lower groove in the module. The Offset L Foot can be attached to a variety of roof mounts, including flashings, standoffs and tile hooks.
