Connect System

Connect System

The new Sun Ballast-Connect system creates a grid of connected ballasts and modules, which connects the rows between them. The available tilt angles are the following: 5°, 10°,15°, 20°, 30° and the new 10° for vertical laying. Overall, the ballast and module system provides the roof with a load of about 15-20 kg/sq.m.

ASSEMBLY HAS NEVER BEEN SO EASY!

The Sun Ballast Connect system has allowed us to take another step forward in our corporate mission i.e., helping reduce renewable energy costs in order to be self-sufficient. Those who choose our new Sun Ballast-Connect system will be happy with the results.

From a technical point of view, this system has improved wind resistance with less load on the roof (kg/sq.m). As a result, this system facilitates the installation of the photovoltaic system on flat roofs.
In economic terms, you will reduce purchase, transport, and installation costs.

The new Sun Ballast-Connect system creates a grid of connected ballasts and modules, which connects the rows between them. This ensures high wind resistance while reducing weight (kg/sq.m).
The new system’s ballast is equipped with a retainer that secures the module, preventing it from decoupling, and improves the seal.

Connect ballast is ideal for any type of module with a frame to be installed horizontally. The distance between the rows depends on the size of the module. Therefore, all you have to do is square the first row, and the rest will be as simple and quick as ever.

Furthermore we have created an important integration to the exclusive Connect System, already available for the 5 °, 10 °, 15 °, 20 ° and 30 °: THE 10 ° BALLAST FOR VERTICAL LAYING that allows the installation of photovoltaic panels in vertical mode optimizing further the spaces.
The new system has undergone numerous tests with fluid-dynamic simulators, including yield strength tests.

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°.
