COMPACTFLAT

Aerodynamic and tested base construction for elevated PV modules on flat roofs.

The aerodynamic system offers outstanding structural properties and requires significantly less ballast than other systems on the market. 

All base constructions for the CompactFLAT family are saved in our 3D engineering software AEROTool.

The AEROCOMPACT Customer Center can issue clear and competent project reports based on empirical data.

CompactFLAT S05/10/15

BRACKETBASED

The system is part of the CompactFLAT product family and an aerodynamic South base construction for attaching and aligning PV modules on flat roofs.

It is available in 10° and 15° tilts, and in different row spacings. 

Thanks to the unique “spring effect” of the stand, the base structure adapts optimally to surface conditions. Because the construction is not attached to fails, water drainage is ensured on all sides.

The CompactFLAT S has a 25-year warranty, has been tested in the wind tunnel, is certified in accordance with UL 2703 TÜV, and is delivered with pre-mounted protective mats.

All variants are tested and approved by TÜV Rheinland according to UL 2703 using load testing, and according to UL 1703 using fire testing.

The cable management for string wiring of module series is UL certified and available as an accessory to the base structure.

COMPACTFLAT S10PLUS

BRACKETBASED 10°

Compact, tested base construction for double-sided elevated PV modules on flat roofs.

The system is part of the CompactFLAT product family and an aerodynamic EAST/WEST base construction for attaching and aligning PV modules on flat roofs. The system is available in 10° tilt and with different row spacing.

With just three main components, CompactFLAT S+ offers an outstanding price-performance ratio. The simple installation and good transport density of the innovative system saves time and resources while offering an inexpensive system price.

The aerodynamic design offers outstanding structural properties and requires significantly less ballast than other systems on the market. 

Thanks to the unique “spring effect” of the stand, the base structure adapts optimally to surface conditions. Because the construction is not attached to fails, water drainage is ensured on all sides.

CompactFLAT S+ is delivered pre-assembled, including newly developed protective mat with long-term durability testing.
