Florida Product Approval

As an industry leader, EcoFasten recognizes the need for consistency and uniformity in products and processes, and we are proud to have received approval to install solar roof attachments in the State of Florida.

This approval includes the High-Velocity Hurricane Zone (HVHZ) under the strict requirements of the 2023 Florida Building Code. All three of our Florida Product Approvals are approved for installation on composition shingle roofs. FL#39871 applies to the QB-1® post & base mount, the RockIt Smart Slide, and the GF-1® flashing when paired with either the RockIt® Comp Slide or ClickFit® Universal L-Foot. FL#41395 pertains to the ClickFit® racking system, including ClickFit Smart Foot, and FL#41656 is valid for the RockIt® racking system, including the RockIt Smart Slide.

This thorough evaluation also includes testing for resistance to high wind forces (TAS-105) and wind-driven rain (TAS-100A). Our code compliance applies to all regions within Florida, both inside and outside the high-velocity hurricane zones.

EcoFasten is committed to safe solar, even when installed in extreme environments, and by obtaining these product approvals, the permitting process in Florida is more streamlined and efficient.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where can EcoFasten’s Florida Product Approval documentation be found?

EcoFasten’s Florida Product Approvals (FL#39871, FL#41395, FL#41656) can be found on our website or by visiting the Florida Building Code’s database of approved products.

Is this approval compatible with all solar PV modules?

Solar PV modules have individual tested capacity for resistance to high wind forces and wind-driven rain. Refer to the PV module manufacturer’s data sheet, cut sheet, or product manual for module-specific load ratings. 

Will an engineer still be required to stamp my project?

This approval should eliminate the need for a project-specific stamp, as the approval covers structural engineering. Check with your local jurisdiction to confirm requirements.

Is this approval applicable to other/all hurricane-prone regions?

The Florida Building Code and the state’s testing standards are often adopted or cited in other such regions of similar climate and geographical location; however official approval depends on the local AHJ (Authority Having Jurisdiction).
