Solar Foundations Features

Design Features

Baseplate/Drilled Holes

Solar foundations are provided with either a baseplate or with drilled holes.  Baseplates provide a location to mount solar racking systems and are used for foundation installation.  Solar foundations without baseplates allow U-bolt racking systems to slide over the top of the foundations.  Installation tool is then attached to the drilled holes.

Foundation Pipe Shaft

Shaft Material: Steel round HSS per ASTM A500 Grade B, minimum yield 50 KSI.

Round Shaft (RS) Helical Product Ratings
Catalog Number Torque Rating ft-lbs (Nm) Ultimate Tension Strength *kip (kN) Uplift/Compression Capacity Limit**kip (kN)
RS3500.300 13,000 (17 600) 120 (534) 91 (405)
RS4500.337 23,000 (31 200) 140 (623) 138 (614)

* Based on Mechanical Strength of Coupling
** Based on Torque Rating – Uplift/Compression Capacity Limit = Torque Rating x Kt
“Default” Kt for Type RS2875 Series = 9 ft-1 (30 m-1); for Type RS3500.300 = 7 ft-1 (23 m-1);
for Type RS4500.337 = 6 ft-1 (20 m-1);
for Type RS6225.280 = 4 ft-1 (13 m-1);
for Type RS8624.250 = 5 ft-1 (13 m-1);

Galvanized Coating

Finish: Hot dip galvanize per ASTM A123; coating Grade 85. Appearance per Section 6.4, except no rack marks.
