Flush Mount Solar Panel Brackets
Mount your solar panel flush with the tops of your 8020 or Unistrut roof rack.
Our Flush Solar Panel Mounting Brackets are designed to give you the cleanest and easiest solar panel installation possible when used with 8020 or Uni-Strut roof racks. These sturdy brackets are precision stamped out of 14 Gage Stainless Steel which will give you a secure corrosion resistant mounting surface that will not only outlast your solar panels but probably your van. The slotted hardware locations in each bracket help compensate for different solar panel sizes as well as for any tolerance stack up that may occur while you are building your roof rack.
Our brackets are specifically designed for easy installation with 8020 or Uni-Strut roof racks so that the top of your solar panel sits close to flush or sub flush with the top of your rack. With these brackets you can bolt your solar panel to your bracket, lower your panel onto your cross bars, and easily tighten the hardware from the top. Most other flush mount options require you to bolt your panel to your brackets and your cross bars, then installing these as an entire one-piece assembly. This process gets complicated and cumbersome once you have more than one solar panel and often requires you to build your rack first and then lower it onto your roof. Our panels eliminate those issues and offer a hassle-free installation. Do not waste your time or money with any other solar panel mounting brackets if you plan to install them on an 8020 or a Uni-Strut rack. You will be left trying to modify them or with having to install your solar panels to your rack before you install it on your van.
As always if you have any questions about how to use these brackets, how to install them, common configurations, which hardware length to use with these brackets for your project let us know. We are here to help!
Flush Mount: When using our flush mount brackets your finished look may vary based on the thickness of your solar panels. From the top of your 8020 or Unistrut to the bottom of your solar panel using our brackets is 1.2". If your solar panel is 1.1" thick then the top of your solar panel will be 0.1" below the top of your rack. If you rolar panel is 1.3" thick then the top of your solar panel will be 0.1" above the top of your rack. All of these options provide for a near flush finish which is better than mounting your solar panels above your cross bars.
Overall Dimensions: 3" Long x 3.23" Wide x 1.56" Tall with 2" center to center spacing between slots for 5/16 hardware where you attach to your rack, and one slot for 1/4" hardware in the middle to attach to your solar panel.
