Making Unusable Land Usable
GLIDE Ballast now allows TerraSmart to build its most advanced racking system on impenetrable soil conditions, specifically landfills and brownfields.
GLIDE Ballast Foundation
TGP Ballast foundation leverages all of the benefits of GLIDE’s fixed tilt racking solution now designed to securely fasten into the pre-cast ballast blocks. The blocks are engineered to meet the requirements of specific regions and climates where each installation will occur.
Portrait Module Orientation
Up to 2 high x up to 12 wide
TerraSmart’s engineers provide the fiber specifications to the pre-caster along with specs include our ballast sleeves
Once the gravel pads have been leveled, the concrete blocks are carried over and laid in place.
Project specific – up to 170 mph wind speed and 100 PSF Ground Snow Load
TGL Ballast foundation carries over the same assets as its fixed-tilt version, being that GLIDE Ballast Landscape offers bifacial module compatibility with a complete shadow-free backside and integrated electrical bonding.
