NXT Horizon® is the culmination of over two decades of Unirac engineering experience and customer feedback gathering. Designed around the solar installer, every feature of this new racking system is purposefully crafted to present a simpler, safer roof experience, as well as a shorter installation time and a dynamic, clean look that homeowners are sure to appreciate.
The system is unique in how it combines multiple elements in each component. One of the most striking differences of NXT Horizon in comparison to other Unirac products is the strong, light, open channel rail that holds up to eight wires for simple wire management.
Unirac also considered the new system’s impact on the homeowner during its product design process. “It offers the safety, reliability, peace-of-mind, and visual appeal that will give our installers overwhelming homeowner satisfaction,” Mr. Gallegos explained.
- Less time and fewer boots on the roof mean less inconvenience to the homeowner
- Open-slot Stronghold™ Attachments are flashing-free, leave a smaller footprint (with surprisingly high load capacity), and provide 100% waterproofing
- Refined aesthetic, sleek finishing touches, and cleanly managed wires provide great curb appeal.
An SME Perspective:
“NXT Horizon elegantly combines technology we first saw in FlashLoc with an innovative new approach to flashing free roof attachment. Module attachment and cable management are addressed with a small number of multi functional components in a way that will simplify and speed up installation day.”
