Sloped-roof solar panel mounting systems
The sloped-roof solar panel mounting systems adapt to a large number of roofing materials, such as, tiles, trapezoidal sheet metal, sandwich panels, Kalzip roof, etc. We offer a complete range of fasteners that can browse in the accessories section.
Solar racking can be divided into two different groups: triangular frame mounts to tilt the panels and the coplanar mounts that are installed parallel to the roof.
Triangular frame systems
Solar panel mounting systems for buildings with purlins oriented North-to-South.
The East-to-West oriented base profiles intersect the purlins, therefore it is not necessary for the triangles to match the purlins.
If the purlins are oriented East-to-West, the North-to-South oriented base profile system allows for the intersection with the purlins.
The system has the particularity that the panel rows are connected to one another, which provides exceptional stability to the assembly.
Running profiles over which the solar panels are mounted. The profiles can be fastened to the metal sheets or the purlins.
The system usually comprises two base profiles for each panel row. However, under certain conditions, shared profiles can be used.
This is a variation of the OR-ROW system, where a base profile sub-structured is added to the solar panel mounts.
This system is required when the profiles cannot be directly fixed to any point on the roof.
This solar panel mounting system is designed for trapezoidal sheet metal roofs. The system comprises short base profiles that are fixed to the sheets, ensuring watertightness through EPDM gaskets.
High profile versions are available when the trapezoidal sheet height does not allow proper ventilation.
This type of solar racking are characterized by their low material, transportation, redesign and installation costs.
