QBase Shake & Slate Mount
Item Code: QMNS
The QBase Shake & Slate Mount is a dual-purpose base-and-post style solar mounting system offering superior strength and waterproofing for both wood shake and slate shingle roofs. The oversized 18x18-inch flashing accommodates the large exposure of both types of roofing.
For Shake Roofs
The QBase Shake & Slate Mount is designed to smoothly fit into the workflow between the trades while installing a solar array during the construction of a new shake roof. For retrofitting solar onto an existing shake roof, use our Classic Shake Mount.
For Slate Roofs
The QBase Shake & Slate Mount is the ideal solution for both new and existing slate roofs. It’s not only the first flashed mount designed specifically for slate roofs, the QBase Shake & Slate Mount is the only solar roof mounting solution that will not compromise the integrity of the slate.
