PVshelter

Why PVshelter?

With the space-saving PVshelter, you can keep disturbing noise from the inverters out. Any noise or mechanical vibrations are absorbed by the rubber roof supports and thus protect the roof structure.

  • Contributes to a fire-safe installation
  • Cost-saving through simplified cable infrastructure installation
  • Maximum ventilation possibilities
  • Prevents noise nuisance
  • Space-saving
  • Improves inspection possibilities
  • Easy to combine with RoofSupport cable tray
  • Modularly extendable

 

 

PV Shelter offer a solution

PVshelter is a basic set of a bottom frame construction, mounting frame and is equipped with a roof. The bottom frame is standard placed on 45cm rubber roof supports and is equipped with 2 concrete tile ballast carriers in which up to 170KG of ballast can be placed. With the supplied cable tray and brackets, the installation of cabling is simplified and safe. To reduce point loads on the roof, the roof supports are available up to 1 metre.

For smaller and more powerful inverters

PVshelter is also available as:

 

PVshelter platform

When installing a photovoltaic system on a roof, a structural engineer should calculate the roof load and check whether the maximum roof load is not exceeded after installing the photovoltaic system. If a low permissible roof load is found, an extended mounting frame structure must be calculated and used. By applying PVshelter Platform, where extremely low roof loads can be achieved based on an exact calculation, it is possible to install inverters on the roof.

 

Magnelis

All our PVshelters are equipped with Magnelis metal coating. This coating consists of zinc, alloyed with 3.5% aluminium and 3% magnesium. This unique composition ensures an excellent protection of the surface and the cut edges, even in the most extreme conditions. Under normal circumstances, this ensures that PVshelter is protected against corrosion for up to 25 years! One of the most remarkable features of Magnelis metal coating is that it is able to repair itself at the cut edges, which is usually where corrosion often occurs.

Of course, this coating has even more advantages:

  • excellent workability in welding and forming due to smaller layer thickness;
  • less harmful to the environment, because the coating contains less zinc, which can end up in the soil via rainwater;
  • the cost price is lower compared to other coatings applied after galvanisation;
  • Magnelis is also used by substructure manufacturers on which solar panels are mounted.
