Sheathed surfaces are a perfect way not only to protect the cover on which the panels are placed, but also to avoid the sliding of the supports in case of slight inclination of the roof.
PROBLEM: in case of flat surfaces covered with sheath, it is necessary to pay the utmost attention to the surface itself while laying the panels: it is important not to damage it with fixing holes so as not to invalidate its waterproofing action.
SOLUTION: the Sun Ballast support system ensures maximum wind resistance thanks to the double function of support and ballast, without damaging the sheath. For this reason, Sun Ballast structures, which do not need to be fixed to the roof, are the best choice for this surface.
Ground-based installations can have the same advantages as green-roof installations, so greater benefits both for plant productivity and for the ecosystem.
Unlike the green roof, in this case the weight of the structure that supports the panels does not represent a limit to the installation.
As we have shown, Sun Ballast solar panel support structures, thanks to their extreme versatility, are the ideal choice for any type of surface. The installation does not require any type of fixing and is therefore easy and fast, and it does not affect the surface in any way.
Before proceeding, the technical office of Sun Ballast carefully evaluates the characteristics of the roof on which the panels will be installed. It is important to take into consideration some factors to be able to be better oriented in the selection of the most suitable structure.
Among the features of the roof that affect the construction of the plant, we mention, for example, the thickness of the ground on a green roof or the load in cover due to the use of gravel.
This type of calculation and evaluation allows us to offer a customized service for each customer and each installation.
The rest is the versatility of our ballasts, a competitive advantage that makes them ideal for all type of surfaces.
