The novelty and unparalleled effectiveness of Sun Ballast products are the result of massive investments in Research and Development, as well as rigorous and detailed testing.
When concrete is worth its weight in gold
Introducing the market to a product that is revolutionary both in design and functionality is a challenge that Sun Ballast has won starting from afar, laying the foundations of success with thousands of hours of Research and Development.
Our concrete structures, which immediately made the traditional aluminium ones nearly obsolete, are packed with real advantages verified and certified through an extensive and meticulous series of tests.
Quick and easy to install – and more economical!
Installation times are reduced by 70% compared to traditional systems, because nothing needs to be assembled and there is no need to drill any holes in the roof. So far hundreds of installations have been completed by just a few people in a matter of several hours – it’s a practical and economical system that reduces costs per kW!
A wide range of tilt angles: the perks of versatility
Sun Ballast offers over 40 different models at angles ranging from 0° to 35°, allowing the units to be set up in various combinations (horizontal, vertical, east-west.)
The ballasts do not need to be fixed to the roof – simply placed, because a single element performs both functions of support and ballast.
The Sun Ballast system is patented to eliminate the need to fix its elements to a flat roof, allowing them to simply rest on the surface. Our technical department ensures the structures’ stability with extreme precision and care, making sure they are of sufficient weight to resist any amount of wind stress.
Due to not needing to be fixed, they are extremely versatile: they can be moved to circumvent obstacles or raised to overcome shaded areas. Rows can be skipped or added, or removed if necessary.
Finally, the plant layout can be changed with absolutely no difficulty: determined by the needs of the panels, not the structures.
