Connect System

Connect System

Sun Ballast Connect system creates a grid composed of ballast and photovoltaic modules linked together, making the rows integral with each other. This guarantees a high wind resistance as confirmed by the meticulous tests with fluid dynamics simulators and structural yield stress, achieving excellent wind resistance results. All this in the face of weight kg/ sqm reduced. As a whole, the ballast plus modules, brings a load in coverage of about 15-20 kg/ sqm. Connect system is suitable for any type of framed module which can be laid horizontally with an inclination of 5 °, 10 °, 15 °, 20 ° and 30 °. In addition, for the 10 ° angle inclination, the solution for laying the photovoltaic modules vertically is also available.

ASSEMBLY HAS NEVER BEEN SO EASY!

With Sun Ballast Connect system, the company takes a further step forward in the direction of the corporate mission: to contribute to the reduction of renewable energy costs in order to achieve self-sufficiency.
In fact, this system simplifies and facilitates the installation of the photovoltaic system on flat roofs. The ballasts are equipped with a tooth that hold the module, preventing its release and improving its tightness. The distance between the rows is given by the module size, therefore, by squaring the first row, the rest comes by itself, easier and faster than ever.

The results for those who choose to use the new Sun Ballast-Connect system are concrete and tangible. From a technical point of view, there is an improvement in wind resistance with a lower roof load (kg / m2).
In economic terms, there is a real reduction in purchase, transport and installation times.

Can I have the details about the pallets?

Of course, please send an email to logistica@sunballast.com including the reference number of your order.

Is it possible to ground your system?

Yes, it can be grounded by means of connecting 2 panels as explained in the execution standard or using accessories (e.g. terminal and central braces) certified for grounding.

How long is your buckle?

Our buckle has a screw thread ≈ 3 cm long.

Can I install rails on your ballasts?

Yes.

Can I install solar thermal panels on your ballasts?

Yes, the technicians will suggest you the best solution after receiving the technical sheet and the assembly instructions of the panel.

Can I install the panels glass-glass?

Yes, by using the rails.

Is it possible to have a ballast produced according to our dimensional requirements?

Yes it is, we also produce custom ballasts to meet our clients’ needs.

Can I have black ballasts?

Yes, the minimum order is 1 pallet.

How long does the shipment take?

As soon as we receive the complete order (i.e. signed order, with delivery address + bank transfer report) we set shipment and delivery in 2/3 working days for northern Italy, 3/4 working days for central Italy, 4/5 working days for southern Italy/islands, 5/6 working days abroad.

Please note: for orders over €1500 we also have to wait for the credit to be transferred on our bank account.

Can you deliver the material on a vehicle with tail lift, as we do not have the equipment to unload the pallets?

Of course, we can send you a vehicle with hydraulic tail to unload the pallets.

Please note: we can do it up to 15/20 pallets; for larger amounts we supply a semi-truck, which is not provided with hydraulic tail.

Is there iron in the ballast?

Yes, in our ballasts there are 1-2 iron bars that enhance the resistance in handling and transport; should our ballast be damaged during the shipment (i.e. minute cracks occurring in the surface), it can be used anyway.

Is the buckle in the ballast in stainless steel?

No, it is made of zinc plated steel, as it permits to redo the thread if it strips while screwing (using the male screw M8)

Is it possible to drill the ballast?

Yes, our ballast can be drilled to insert Ø 9 mm expansion buckles. We recommend you to drill the ballasts in the central part.

What can I do if the buckle is oxydised?

Apply lubricant (e.g. WD40) or grease on the buckle.

Can I install the ballasts on any kind of flat surface?

Yes, our ballast can be installed on gravel, green roof, tarmac, concrete, ground.

What is the maximum tilt of the roof on which your system can be installed?

It can be installed on any roof with a maximum tilt of +5° or -5°.
