Reliable fastening systems – guaranteed watertight roofs

 

All S:FLEX flat roof mounting systems are installed without roof penetration and are available as aerodynamic/low-ballast systems and as ballasted frames.

Our aerodynamic LEICHTmount systems require only minimal additional ballast and are the ideal solution for quick installation and for roofs with low pressure/load-bearing capacities.

Our ballasted system based on the S:FLEX Delta triangle allows installation with higher ballast quantities if necessary.

The main advantages of the LEICHTmount RAIL 2.0 S/EW:

  • System with building approval
  • Extremely low surface load and roof fastenings without roof penetration
  • Low ballast due to systematic aerodynamic optimisation of the design
  • Optimum load distribution and introduction via a 115-mm-wide floor rail – also suitable for roofing with low pressure resistance
  • Independently tested for wind safety in accordance with German and US standards
  • Very short installation time thanks to fewer components and one-click connections (only one tool is required)
  • Foam rubber pads (plasticiser-free) are firmly pre-installed on the system to protect the roof membrane
  • Roof drainage is ensured
  • Optimised rear ventilation for maximum energy yield
  • Optimised cable management with conduit covers and edge clips
  • Integrated fall protection (optional)
  • We will gladly create the structural design for our customer's projects if required – the documentation we provide includes the structural analysis and the ballast plan

The lightweight alternative

Aerodynamic, lightweight and totally wind-safe installation without roof penetration. The S:FLEX LEICHTmount RAIL mounting system for framed PV modules is the ideal solution for flat roofs (up to a maximum pitch of 5°) – even with a low load-bearing capacity.

Both versions – the System S for the traditional south-facing orientation and the EW variant for maximum east/west coverage – deliver outstanding economy. The use of only a few, pre-assembled components, most of which can be connected easily and securely with one click, makes installation easy, efficient and fast. No need for time-consuming measuring or drilling on the roof.

As well as the wide contact surfaces and thick, pre-installed foam rubber pads on the substructure, the tool-free installation without self-drilling screws or sharp-edged components provides additional protection – even for the most delicate roof membrane.

The aerodynamic alternative

On flat roofs where roof penetration is not possible or desired but the roof construction and load-bearing capacities do not permit ballasting, an aerodynamic, largely ballast-free solution is a viable alternative.

Installed quickly and removable without a trace – yet as stable, storm-proof and durable as ballasted mounting systems or those that are firmly connected to the roof membrane – our aerodynamically designed frames are based on a well-thought, pioneering concept. In particular, our LEICHTmount systems, which can be installed in both south-facing and east-west orientations, come highly recommended as innovative and uncomplicated flat-roof installations.

All benefits of our systems with the S:FLEX Delta triangle at a glance:

  • Variable use of framed and frameless PV modules on flat roofs of old and new buildings
  • Installation on ballast stones, hanger bolts or trapezoidal sheet metal rails is possible; special solutions on request
  • Horizontal or vertical module installation
  • Delta triangles are available with tilt angles from 5° to 45° (in 5° increments)

The easiest way to use flat roofs for photovoltaic systems

The S:FLEX roof frame with ballast is the simple and proven solution for non-penetrative, green-roof-compatible flat-roof installations. A number of attachment and ballast options are available depending on the planned system and the conditions on site.

On flat roofs without roof structures and in regions with high wind loads, we recommend installing Delta triangles for ballasting. In this case, a particularly high quantity of ballast can be flexibly distributed over the rails.

For roofs with a lower load-bearing capacity and roof superstructures on which longer rails cannot easily be laid, the triangles are attached directly to ballast blocks/stone slabs.

Installation of the substructure with S:FLEX Delta triangles with our universal one-click installation principle and ballast – such as weighting stones, gravel or green-roof granules – ensures absolute roof-tightness and easy dismantling. It also offers all the benefits of a raised-panel solution. As well as straightforward maintenance and easy accessibility of both the roof surface and the PV system, high system efficiencies are also achieved thanks to optimal rear ventilation.
