The Solmetric Module Lift is designed to safely transport PV modules up to the roof. The module lift system requires a compatible fiberglass extension ladder. Please check this list to confirm ladder compatibility.
A pulley system is attached to the top of the ladder. A patented module "hook" attaches to the edge of a PV module frame and prevents lateral sliding of the module in the hook. An operator pulls the rope to raise the module. The module slides along the outward facing surface of the ladder rails. "Ramps" allow the module to slide over any discontinuities in the ladder surface (e.g. the step between sections in the ladder). The pulley assembly includes a brake that prevents the module from sliding back down the ladder in case the bottom operator releases the rope too soon. An operator at the top removes the module and releases the brake to lower the hook.
Compatible only with fiberglass extension ladders from Werner and Louisville. Note: Aluminum extension ladders are not compatible with the module lift.
Select the rope length as 60' or 80' (e.g. a 28' ladder could use the 60' rope, a 40' ladder would need the 80' rope).
