The system can now also be used on flat roofs with minimal ballast. Newly developed components also allow modules to be mounted on stands with a south-facing or east-west orientation. Stand angle is 13 degrees, promoting the self-cleaning of the modules.
The new flat-roof system for plastic sheeting and bituminous roofs has been wind-tunnel tested and can be adjusted to all regionally prevailing wind and snow loads. The company has developed special wind-deflector plates to reduce wind loading on south-facing arrays. The flat-roof installation system is being presented for the first time at Intersolar in Munich. It's planned to go on sale in September 2011.
