PV Mounting Structures
High quality, long lasting, well designed solutions for mounting PV modules and arrays.
This is a universal fixing system specially developed for use with framed photovoltaic modules to give a safe & simple method of assembly with minimum installation time. Rather than screwing into the mounting system modules are inserted and locked into the system using special aluminium profiles.This avoids stress in the modules due to movements of the roof structure. In addition modules can be assembled on the roof without tools, offering considerable advantages in time and safety.Using this system aluminium framed modules with a frame size of up to 50mm (eg. BP Solar Universal frame) can easily be assembled into an aesthetic structure above the roof surface.
Although an integrated appearance is achieved, best possible output is ensured because the system is mounted above the roof allowing sufficient ventilation. A further advantage is that single modules can easily be exchanged without difficulty should this be necessary at a future date.
SOL-50 can be used with standard types of modules and is suitable for almost any type of roof structure: above-roof on tiles, slates, or corrugated metal; flat roof and roof canopy.
A range of ground mounting structures designed for ease of construction, all weather conditions and long life.
These single axis solar trackers were originally developed for use in high sunlight areas for solar pumping systems in order to maximise water supplied during the day. Robust, with the minimum of moving parts to ensure reliability and long life.
They give substantial benefits in summer (marginal in winter) and can increase yearly generation by up to 25%.
Worth considering when the cost of the tracker increases the array output for less than buying equivalent extra solar modules and alternative mounting system or when the greatest power demand occurs in summer.
PV mounting systems for use on flat roofs avoiding pentrations to the roof.
Modules may be mounted on a pole, a ground support, a wall of a building, a building or vehicle roof, or on a boat deck. The main considerations are day long access to unobstructed sunlight and wire lengths to batteries. Appearance and ease of access for any cleaning etc. should also be considered.
