QuickMount® Technologies

QuickMount® components are designed on the principle of using state-of-the-art technology to make roof-mounted solar easier to install, stronger and more reliable, and 100% waterproof.

QBlock® Technology

Ensuring Long-Term Water Seal Integrity

QuickMount® revolutionized rooftop solar mounting in 2006 when it introduced the Classic Composition Mount. The underlying technology, the patented QBlock® Elevated Water Seal Technology®, has since been proven in millions of installations.

QBlock® Innovation

Other roof mounts seal the bolt holes in the flashing with a rubber seal mounted directly against the flashing at the water level. A leak is almost inevitable as the seal slowly deteriorates in the harsh roofing environment. The QuickMount® patented QBlock® uses an aluminum flute to elevate the EPDM rubber seal above the flashing and out of harm’s way.

The cast-aluminum QBlock® completely encloses the rubber seal, shielding the sealing area from the ravages of rain, ice and UV exposure, and minimizing stresses on the rubber seal caused by thermal- and wind-induced movement of the solar array. A secondary rubber seal provides a final measure of safety.

  • 100% IBC compliant

QBlock® for Tile Technology

Optimal Waterproofing

The QBlock® patented Elevated Water Seal Technology® offers optimal waterproofing for tile roofs. A fully engineered universal base mount provides clean, fast installation without messy tile grinding or cutting.

QBlock® for Tile Innovation

Universal base mount with integral deck level flashing is fully adjustable and can be oriented to the left or right for proper rafter location. The base mount also features an innovative track to position the post for optimal location under the tile. Pre-formed flashing and Elevated Water Seal Technology® provides code-compliant deck-level waterproofing.

QBlock® for Tile Applications

Tile Replacement Mount with QBlock® technology provides fast, easy, and clean tile roof installations with no cutting or grinding of tiles.

QBlock® for Tile Technology Benefits

  • Versatile: works with Flat, S and W shaped tiles and all standard rail-based racking
  • Universal base mount works with all three tile profile flashings
  • Enables fast, clean installation without cutting or grinding tiles
  • Double-flashed: flashed at both the deck and tile levels for code compliance
  • Meets or exceeds roofing industry best practices
  • 100% IBC compliant

QBlock® for Tile Products

QBase® Technology

A Superior Base-and-Post Mounting System

QuickMount® developed QBase® to provide a strong and versatile mounting solution for installations with high standoffs.

QBase® Innovation

Typical base-and-post mounting systems lose structural integrity when standoffs exceed a few inches. The QBase® has a super-strong cast aluminum foundation with four gussets to support standoff posts from 3.75 to 12 inches. The single base for all post heights reduces the number of components needed for a wide variety of roof types and installations.

QBase® Applications

When standoffs get higher than several inches, such as with installations on curved tile and commercial built-up or insulated low slope roofs, QBase® superior strength and proven waterproofing provide decades-long confidence.

QBase® Technology Benefits

  • Supports standoffs up to 12 inches
  • Exceptional shear and pullout strength
  • Adaptable to asphalt shingle, tile, shake, slate, metal shingle, and low slope roofs
  • Meets or exceeds roofing industry best practices
  • 100% IBC compliant

QHook® Technology

Optimizing the Tile Hook

Engineered for strength, QHook® enables simple tile hook mounting on more tile roof jobs. Form-fitting flashing and a sliding base-hook interface allow fast, economical installation without penetrating or replacing tiles.

QHook® Innovation

A unique sliding hook-and-base track enables several inches of side-to-side adjustment to position the hook to the optimal location between the tiles. The base has multiple sets of mounting holes for even more flexibility. Pre-formed flashing provides code-compliant deck-level waterproofing.

QHook® Applications

QHook® enables streamlined tile roof installations with no hole cutting, less dust, and fewer broken tiles.

QHook® Technology Benefits

  • Significantly expands the opportunities to use tile hooks
  • Enables fast, cost-effective installation
  • Deck-level flashing provides code-required waterproofing and an attractive appearance
  • Meets or exceeds roofing industry best practices
  • 100% IBC compliant
