New, Extremely Efficient Mounting System: TRI-FLAT

(PresseBox) (Allschwil / Basel, ) Extremely light-weight, stackable, transport-optimized and, in particular, mountable in record time with just a few simple steps and minimum tools - those are the major advantages of TRITEC's new PV mounting system for flat roofs. The system is available as of September as TRI-FLAT South for a south support, and as TRI-FLAT East-West in an east/west variant.

Flexible application

TRI-FLAT South and TRI-FLAT East-West consist of high-quality aluminium and A2 stainless steel components. The ballast- and transport-optimized flat roof mounting system can be set up at a angle of 10° or 15° towards the south or in east/west direction. It is suitable for mounting PV systems without roofing penetration on membrane roofs, on concrete and gravel roofs, as well as on substrate and green roofs with a maximum roof inclination of 5°.

Time-saving installation

With its simple click system using pre-drilled components and no-tool installation, the mounting system can be set up efficiently and in record time especially for large roof areas. Framed modules may be simply clicked in transversely. Moreover, the system simplifies logistics and handling at the construction site. The few and short-length components (< 1.20 m) fit on Euro pallets and are stackable. That has a noticeable effect on cost optimization as well.

Proven in practice on a large-scale 5.2 MW project

TRI-FLAT South has already been successfully used on a large-scale project: A 5.2 MW solar power plant has been realized this year on the roofs of the distribution centre of Migros-Verteilbetrieb Neuendorf AG. Thanks to the flat, low-ballast substructure, it had been possible to install 60 percent more capacity with TRI-FLAT than originally planned because their roofs had already been used to capacity in terms of structural analysis and statics engineering. The system's aerodynamic design passed its endurance test when a storm supercell with over 100 km/h wind speeds passed over the up to 25 m high roofs - the solar system weathered the incident without any problem and remained intact.

For more than 25 years, TRITEC has been specialized in the generation of renewable energy by means of photovoltaic systems. The Swiss company operates worldwide and annually realizes over 5,000 solar projects with about 1,500 qualified installation partners. Such projects include the world's largest stadium-integrated photovoltaic system on the football stadium Stade de Suisse in Berne; also, systems integrated in a building's exterior, as on the Gehry Building at the Novartis Campus in Basel; or Switzerland's largest solar power plant on the distribution centre of Migros-Verteilbetrieb Neuendorf AG in Neuendorf. TRITEC attaches great importance to the high quality of products. Its portfolio exclusively provides brand products of established manufacturers which guarantee top quality. Supplementarily, TRITEC offers clever own products for planning, design and performance reviews of solar power systems as well as smart mounting systems. Photovoltaic systems are exposed to the harshest weather conditions for many years and only their prime quality will guarantee long-term investment yields. Finally, clean energy and sustainability belong together for TRITEC - true to their corporate philosophy and mission statement: Energy for a better world.
