Don’t Let Your Panel Outlast Your Solar X-Piles
A heavy-duty solar x-piles are designed to withstand extremely corrosive soils. They’re coated with 20 mils of our Envirolast 627™ and have a corrosion rate of approximately 1 mil per year. When comparing to alternate piles, such as galvanizing, you can expect a service life of up to 30 years! That’s 5 times as long as using galvanized pilings.
Galvanized Steel In Corrosive Soils
One of the current challenges is building support structures that will last in corrosive soils. Galvanizing is not always an adequate method of protecting driven pilings. The goal of e-book is to give the reader a basic understanding of the corrosion process and how to interpret graphs from the AGA and AISI on the service life of galvanized steel. In addition, the e-book gives an overview of other industry’s practices to safeguard against corrosion, such as the California Department of Transportation.
Why Solar X-Piles™?
Over 90% of Hole Patterns Supported
We provide hole patterns for all major brands including Array Technologies, NeXTracker and Sunlink.
Excellent Adhesion and Abrasion Resistance
Envirolast 627™, the coating we use on our X-Piles™ features superior resistance to abrasive factors that are typically present during vibratory and high impact installations. The tenacious adhesion to the substrate that prevents shearing of the film from the surface make this solar pile the ideal solution for rough terrain.
Save Thousands in Corrosion Maintenance
When installed in the extreme corrosive soils that they were designed for, they’ll end up saving you thousands of dollars in corrosive maintenance expenses throughout the life of your project.
