SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. – May 11, 2021 – SnapNrack®, the leading manufacturer of residential solar mounting solutions, is the first and only solar mounting company to earn Miami-Dade County’s Notice of Acceptance (NOA) of integrated flashing technology with its SpeedSeal™ roof attachments. Furthermore, the SpeedSeal™ Track for the RL Universal Roof Mount System is the first and only railless roof attachment to earn the NOA approval.
Due to the conditions from the High Velocity Hurricane Zone (HVHZ), Miami-Dade County has the country’s strictest requirements for construction, and regulates specific building products as part of their NOA process including the permitting, installation and inspection of solar. Installers must comply with these strict installation methods in Miami-Dade County. Whereas a product tested to the HVHZ standards, does not necessarily mean it is approved for use in Miami-Dade County. With such a high standard and benchmark for approval, Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJs) in surrounding areas accept the NOA with confidence for their own Local Product Approval Process. Other high wind areas across the east coast and as far away as Hawaii, Guam, the Caribbean, and even in Japan have been known to accept the Miami-Dade County NOA.
“SpeedSeal™ roof attachments minimize damage to the roof, while improving installation efficiency, and the NOA removes a permitting barrier ultimately allowing more homeowners to adopt solar in the sunshine state,” says Ezra Phillips, Senior Manager of Products for SnapNrack. The NOA for Miami-Dade County includes both structural engineering and water ingress within one approval, eliminating the need for site-specific stamped engineering so contractors and installers are able to accelerate and streamline the design, permitting and inspection process.
“SpeedSeal™ Foot and SpeedSeal™ Track feature SnapNrack’s proprietary Lag Driven Sealant Technology which translates the action of lagging into the rafter to thoroughly disperse a chemical sealant, creating a lasting waterproof seal, without disrupting the roof surface,” explains Ezra Phillips. The Miami-Dade NOA, lends further credibility to the SpeedSeal™ products and SnapNrack’s proprietary technology, which continues to revolutionize the market by improving install efficiency, as well as mitigate damage and disruption to the roof.
