Design and Sun Ballast have taken so many steps forward

Cutting-edge technology and a highly qualified service (completely free of charge) are essential components for the installation of a photovoltaic system


Even in photovoltaics, as in every other industry, progress is the main agent of change and improvement.

From the very beginning Sun Ballast has invested with conviction in Research and Development and is now rewarded with a leading position in the market.

Because when it comes to precision, stability and endurance, the human element will certainly benefit from the support of technology.

In recent years the photovoltaic industry has evolved quickly.

In addition to product development and innovation, both in terms of panels and supporting structures – an area in which Sun Ballast is an important player – today innovations to support the design process of a photovoltaic system are also increasingly relevant.

What has changed for technicians and designers?

Before moving in more details how the tools for designing a photovoltaic system are improved, it is important to highlight the fundamental elements of a good design.

These are the determining factors:

– Panels positioning: orientation to the cardinal points of the panels and degree of inclination.

– Dimensioning: identifying the power of the modules required to achieve certain production objectives

– Standards: D.M. 17/01/2018 “Technical standards for construction”, circular 21 January 2019, no.7 C.S.LL.PP. – Instructions for the application of the «Update of the “Technical standards for construction”» referred to in the Ministerial Decree 17 January 2018, CNR-DT 207/2008 – Instructions for the evaluation of actions and effects of wind on construction, Eurocode 1, UNI ENV 1991-2-4

– Type of roof: surface on which you choose to install photovoltaic panels

– Context in which the building is located: so surrounding buildings, trees, mountains, hills, lakes and the presence of obstacles in the surrounding areas.

And not only that. Climate change and the intensification of extreme events have led technicians and designers to develop a greater sensitivity to the theme of wind, in relation to photovoltaic systems.

This has led to an increasing need to obtain a precise output that can make the construction of the plant even more accurate.

To minimize risks and ensure safety and efficiency.

Today, drawing tools are an essential support

If before the technical design of a photovoltaic system omitted important details, today thanks to modern design software it is possible to realize a system managing to obtain more and more accurate calculations.

Sun Ballast, to make the design even more effective, has long relied on innovative software Insun, on which holds the exclusivity of supports for photovoltaic panels on flat roof.


Insun, to create 3D projects in just a few steps

Insun is a software that, based on information from Google Maps and weather data, allows you to obtain useful information, such as:

– the production data of the plant, according to the weather conditions typical of the place where the plant will be installed

– Technical drawings of mounting structures

– the positioning of modules

– list of materials used

In addition, it is also possible to make an analysis of individual photovoltaic modules, taking into account possible shadows due to objects on the roof or adjacent, resulting in energy loss.

Today Sun Ballast is able to guarantee unsurpassed standards in terms of ease and speed of design, while guaranteeing absolute precision of calculation and mathematical prediction of a series of data, such as, for example, the production capacity of the plant.

Constant innovation, acquired experience and studies make the difference, allowing the company to offer results and service to the state of the art.
