Risk-free PV installation

The distinctive element of the BauderSOLAR system is in the installation of the scheme, which does not require any penetration of the waterproofing or roof deck, even in a non-ballasted arrangement.

This unique installation method sets the system ahead of others and safeguards the integrity of the waterproofing and roof deck; additionally the attachment of the components is very stable so that even in extreme weather the entire array is secure on the roof. Any minor movement of the panels, which is generally created by wind uplift, is easily tolerated and does not affect the fixings, or waterproofing system.

Installing PV on flat roofs

The distinctive element of our lightweight PV energy system is the pre-fabricated Bauder membrane sleeves which slip over the mounting plates and are welded into position, anchoring the plates to the surface of the Bauder waterproofing system. Once this is completed, the rest of the PV installation is simply locked into place without any requirement for tools or sharp fixings.

The attachment of the mounting components is very stable so that even in extreme weather the entire array is secure on the roof. Any minor movement of the panels, which is generally created by wind uplift, is easily tolerated and does not affect the fixings, or waterproofing system. The substructure base units are designed to create a 12° angle on to which each PV module is secured; this allows for optimum energy generation per square metre across the roof area.
