AI Sol mounting

I got two sol modules today with the 48" mounting rail today. For a bowfront this does not work well.

Now if I can mount them length wise, 90 degrees from the traditional mount, they will work fine.

Anyone mount them this way? How?

to mount them that way we had to cut down rails, drill screw holes and just put multiple rails on sideways. Not easy without tools.

you could try the hanging kit which would also give you better light spread.

Unfortunately my ceiling in that room is 14' high so hanging from ceiling is not an option.

Do you have any pictures of it?
