Premises Suitability

Many business premises have flat roofs and they are usually large in area. Typical roof configurations and example installation techniques are:

Flat Roofs

Aluminium stands or plastic 'tubs' can be used which tilt standard solar panels to the optimum angle and allow them to face directly south. The stands can use ballast to hold them down so any water-proof membrane's integrity is not compromised, which is especially important if they are covered by a guarantee.

Alternatives to the regular (crystalline) solar panels are available, often called 'thin-film'; these are available either as sheets or in panels. The sheet form can be bonded directly to suitable roofs.  They are not as efficient as crystalline panels but with the large roof areas usually available this is not so much of a concern as more panels can be used. Thin-film panels are lighter then crystalline ones and self-supporting frames are available which do not require ballast.

Metal and Corrugated Roofs

Usually, the fixings which hold the roof panels in place can be removed at intervals and replaced by water tight bolt/bracket fittings to which rails are attached; the panels then fit to the rails.
