Protect Your Roof

Heliocol’s patented mounting system withstands hurricane force winds with
NO UNSIGHTLY STRAPS.

Heliocol's patented mounting system protects your roof and withstands hurricane force winds with no unsightly straps.
  • Heliocol’s open tube design virtually eliminates lift.
  • No straps means fewer penetrations into your roof.
  • Heliocol’s patented Gator clamps allow the panel to “float” over your roof, preventing moisture build up.
Suntrek's design requires the use of straps and glue to hold panels down in high wind conditions. Suntrek panels can lift like an airplane wing in high winds, ripping panels and straps loose and damaging your roof.
  • Suntrek’s roll-out panels require straps and glue to adhere them to your roof.
  • Straps mean more penetrations into your roof.
  • High winds can lift monolithic panels like an airplane wing, ripping panels and straps loose and damaging your roof.
