General Specialties Side of Pole Mount (SOP) mounts are characterized by heavy-duty construction, ease of assembly, and are easy to adjust for seasonal tilt angle. If you have worked with other mounts, you can really appreciate the ease of adjustment that General Specialties SOP solar panel mounts offer. 

The welds are strong and professional, edges are clean and deburred, metal parts are substantial and robust, bolt holes line up the way they should.

The infrastructure of General Specialties SOP mounts differs from other manufacturers in that each design can accommodate a variety of PV panel brands. 

The universal rails accommodate a variety of PV modules you may want to put on the same mount. General Specialties can also custom punch rails for old or obsolete modules, or any situation you may have.

New modules come on the market all the time with different wattage, mounting hole spacing and frame dimensions. This chart gives an approximate guideline of how many modules fit on our mounts. If you find that you have a panel that has wattage specified in one size category, and dimensions that fit in a different size category, go with the mount
that fits the dimensions of the panel.

To calculate square footage, multiply frame width by frame height (in inches) and divide that by 144. This will equal your panel square footage. NOTE: millimeters divided by 25.4 = inches.


All mounting poles for post mounts are to be supplied by customer - note size required. Post mounts are built to go on "A53 Schedule" pipe. This is the most common type of pipe and is readily available in most steel yards. The Outside Diameter of the pipe is larger than the SCH size indicates. The OD is the critical measurement for our sockets to fit correctly on the mounting post.


3" schedule pipe = 3 1⁄2” OD

4" schedule pipe = 4 1⁄2" OD

5"schedule pipe = 5 9/16" OD

6" schedule pipe = 6 5/8" OD

8" schedule pipe = 8 5/8" OD

10" schedule pipe = 10 3⁄4” OD
