Infinity Rack, an American producer of solar canopy structures based in North Carolina, has developed a modular building-integrated PV (BIPV) framing system. The patent-pending design works with any framed solar panel to create a mechanically watertight solar roof. Infinity Rack is currently shipping the roofing system as well as its proprietary modular structures: the SunLounge watertight solar pergolas and pavilions, as well as the SunPark, SunPark XL and SunPark Cantilever solar carports, nationwide.

These structures have a modular design allowing for a number of possible configurations as well as 14 pre engineered kits – all manufactured in the United states and using domestic materials.

The Infinity Rack product line can seal around any standard framed solar module without any fabrication required in the field, to create a fully watertight roof, the company stated in a press release. The permanent seal does not require the use of seam tape or press-in gaskets, which could require maintenance and replacement. Additionally, all of the structures are engineered to handle adverse weather and snow loads.

All of the SunLounge and SunPark canopies can handle up to 195 mph winds and as much as 120 PSF snow load with additional columns. Infinity Rack framing fully contains system wiring from observers walking under the space. Modules are also mounted so they do not obstruct the backside of the bifacial solar modules to encourage additional gains from reflected light.

SunLounge products are designed to make outdoor living spaces, outdoor seating area, event spaces and meeting areas. The canopies can come with automatic drop-down sun shades, motorized projector screens, fans, custom wrapped columns to match any aesthetic and both the SunLounge and SunPark products are available with integrated RGB LED strip lighting.

The SunPark product line offers residential and commercial carports and car charging stations as well as parking for buses, RVs and tractor trailer trucks. They include fully cantilevered and dual cantilevered options. The pre-engineered kits offer power production between 6.6 and 28.75 kW of solar output with the ability to build structures of any size.

Infinity Rack is launching a new line of building products in Q3 2024 for standalone buildings, additions and sunrooms with the ability to integrate BIPV.
