Solar Constructions offers the following solutions for your solar installation. For a tailored solution we will send a project manager to the constructions site to assess the situation.
In case of a flat roof several options are available to place solar modules. Porticer Solar will analyze the structure to see what systems are most beneficial and cost-effective.
The low weight of flexible solar modules makes them ideal for flat rooftops without water puddles. The installation of flexible solar panels doesn’t require perforation of the roof. The modules are discrete and built in concerning the environment.
Solar modules can also be mounted on a support structure on flat roofs. These supports are made of aluminum or other prefabricated elements. We advise to increase the holding weight with concrete or pebbles. The solar panels need to face south and set up at an angle of 35 degrees.
Many rooftops of commercial buildings are slanted. Porticer Solar offers mounting elements for these solutiosn but also offer Built in photovoltaic systems BIPV or integrated solutions.
Integrated modules or BIPV Built in photovoltaic
On pitched or flat roofs panels can be placed on the roof but can also become part of the structure. Built in photovoltaic are mainly used in new structures for integrated unity.
Facade solar panels
Solar panels can also be integrated in the walls or facades of buildings also named BIPV.
Slanting against facade
If there is no possibility of placing solar panels of rooftops there is an option of mounting the panels to the walls. The modules are mounted on a 35 degree angle by a mounting/ support structure against the facade. This solar solution also provides shade underneath.
Solar Integration in glass – transparent
Porticer Solar also offers solar panels semi transparent glass. This allows lights to go through to the room behind or underneath. Transparent solar modules can be integrated in facades which offers and extra advantage due to its esthetical character of the light projection on walls and floors.
An open field solar installation is interesting for companies who need a large system to generate power whether for own use or for selling purposes. The support structure can be made in various potions. From concrete blocks to poles.
Rotating solar solutions, Solar trackers
Solar panels are mounted on poles with an engine that enables to solar panels to continuously and independently follow the sun or track the sun for best efficiency.
