Installation
Class A
Fire Rated
APPLICATION:
The RoofTrac® mounting system consists of support rails and
top-down clamping hardware which is integrated with either
a TileTrac® or FastJack® attachment device. The RoofTrac®
mounting system can be utilized on virtually all standard
construction residential roof tops, to install UL1703 approved
framed solar modules.
WARNING:
All Professional Solar Products (ProSolar ®) are engineered
and tested to withstand stated specifications (as stated on
published specification sheets) when installed properly.
Failure to install properly may decrease the performance of
installation.

RoofTrac®
Installation
Attachment Method: TileTrac®
Drill 3/16" pilot hole.
STEP 1: Select a tile in the area
of the roof rafter and snap a line down the
midsection of the tile.
STEP 2: Remove the tile by pushing
and pulling. It is usually held
in place by a small nail.
STEP 3: Using an electronic stud
finder (recommended), or other
means, locate the rafter center. Mark a
reference point on the tile above.
Step 4: Using a 3/16” drill bit, drill pilot hole
along the rafter center
Step 7: Install subflashing and seal as
needed if double flash is desired.
Step 8: After bolting the base to the roof,
slide the upper carriage under any portion of
the crown (high point) of the tile.”
For flat tile, slide the upper
carriage near the middle of the tile.*
Tip:
Use a cordless impact wrench
Step 5: Insert the lag bolt and washer
through the TileTrac and apply fresh
compatible sealant to the base.
Seal tile nail hole.
®
Step 6: Fasten lag screw until seated.
Do not overtighten. The sealant should
flow outward sealing any holes.
Tip:
Bind (2) 3/8" nuts to top
of stud prior to roof work
Use a Rotary Hammer drill
for a 5 second drill time.
Step 9: Replace the tile by lining
up the snap lines and mark the drill
location accordingly.
Step 10: Using a 1/2” carbide drill bit and
ROTARY HAMMER DRILL in hammer
mode, drill through the tile. See online
video at www.prosolar.com for details.
Step 11: Insert threaded stud
through tile and hand-tighten to engage
with base. Bind two 3/8” nuts (included)
using 9/16” wrenches and tighten. and
tighten to 15 ft-lbs. Tip: Pre-assemble
studs and nuts before roofwork
Step 12: Unbind nuts and remove from
stud. Apply sealant around stud at tile
opening and compress with Stainless
Steel flashing (included) until seated.
*Do not locate stud in valley of tile. Not recommended for clay or slate tiles. TileTrac® tested and
approved for use only with the ProSolar® RoofTrac® rail mounting system. NOT APPROVED for
non-Prosolar® RoofTrac® products.
Step 13: Fasten rail with lower and upper
3/8" nuts/washers to 15 ft-lb as shown.

RoofTrac®
Installation
Fastening Support Rails
1. Mark rails with Sharpie®
Installation of the RoofTrac® support rails
to the attachment (FastJack ® shown)
After the attachment has been installed (refer
to the attached installation guide for detail),
lay the support rail upside down) next to the
attachments. Mark the channel adjacent to
the attachment devices. Align and mark the
intersecting “V” groove on the rail and drill
a 1/2” locking rail hole through the rail. After
drilling the hole in the support rail, place the
rail over the attachment feet and fasten.
Maximum cantilever approximately 20” for
any rail height.
2. Drill 1/2” holes with #10 Irwin Unibit ®
Note: Unibit provides for a deburred hole.
Use of a #10 (1/2”) Unibit ®
will decrease drill time to
approximately 3 seconds
per hole.
3. Fasten with cordless impact gun until seated

After the support rails have been fastened, you are ready to
install the solar modules. There are two sets of clamps: the
outside clamps (end clamp) (Fig. 1), and the inter-module
clamps (mid clamp) shown (Fig. 2) that install between the
modules.
RoofTrac® Rail Spreader
Allows clamp/nut to be easily removed or
inserted (previously performed with pliers).
Ideal for microinverter/power optimizers.
NOTE: Clamping hardware is not engineered or intended for
use on support rail other than the ProSolar ® RoofTrac® rail.

Installation
Installing Modules
1.
2.
Slide the two end clamps near the end of the support rail and
install your end module first. Carefully square the module to
the frame and tighten the clamps using a 1/2” deep socket.
After the first module is secured, slide two mid clamp sets
onto the first module side frame. They are designed to stay
in place, allowing you to slide and align the next module into
place. Repeat this procedure until all modules are installed
onto support rail.

-roof line
-tile (standard)
-FastJack flashing mounts
-with slice installed
-with end and mid clamps intalled to rail
-LAST PANEL INSTALL
Upon installation of the last module in the panel, install
the module end clamp to the end of the last module. We
recommend a torque of 15 foot pounds after the last module
has been installed and the array has been adjusted/squared.
Fully torque mid-clamps before end clamps.
4.
To complete the installation, cut off any excess support
rail not being used with a reciprocating saw. Use a file to
remove any sharp edges. Per UL2703, it is recommended to
periodically re-inspect systems for any loose components or
corrosion. Retighten or replace components as necessary.
