We’ve taken great care in designing a system that is really quick and simple to install but also requires a minimal amount of ballast. The design incorporates aerodynamic principles, which allow the system to use the effects of the wind uplift to its benefit and effectively self-ballasts.
We’ve taken significant steps to ensure that our system complies and protects the existing roof covering by applying a separation layer to the bottom of the support feet prior to delivery. The support feet are also slightly curved around the edges to avoid any sharp edges, so that they don’t damage the existing roof covering.
We’ve incorporated aerodynamic principles into the design so that the system used the effects of the wind uplift to create suction against the roof, which in turn, dramatically reduces the amount of additional ballast.
We understand that with the expense of lifting equipment and the time constraints involved that sometimes it’s better if the mounting system arrives to your site complete with ballast. Not only does this save you time waiting for more than one delivery, it also removes the hassle of you trying to locate the right amount of ballast for your project.
Since we’ve designed the system to be low ballast, we’ve made sure that the robust support feet are wide enough to avoid any heavy point loading.
We calculate all project using a combination of Eurocode Standards, National Standards and physical wind tunnel testing results, safely ensuring the correct amount of ballast is installed.
All flat roofs have some form of a pitch to comply with regulations that require rainwater to flow freely into the guttering system. We’ve ensured that our system also complies with these regulations by designing the support feet so that the rainwater flows around them, as opposed to railed systems that can obstruct the water flow.
