Fixed-tilt structures for every solar panel
It has been designed to fully optimize the installation of PV modules thanks to its great adaptability to terrain and its different attachment options. STI F5TM extends the life of the installation due to the robustness of the structure and quality of its materials.
STI F5TM is a double-post structure of 8-meter wide that is able to support module configurations of 4-portrait or 8-landscape, suitable for areas with high wind and heavy snow loads.
Our engineers design the structure according to the specifications of each project and the country or region regulations (ASCE, Eurocode, CFE, NCH, AS/NZS, etc.)
It is modular and adapts to the electrical configuration and needs of the project, providing maximum optimization, with modules of up to 2000 mm x 1000 mm and tilts of between 5 and 15°.
Flexible for adaptation to all types of terrain and slopes.
Optimize land-use and install more panels in less space.
Easy assembly that minimizes man-hours and avoids the use of machinery.
Instalation and maintenance
Thanks to the simplicity of its structure and its modular design, minimal installation time is required. In addition, the learning curve for its assembly is very fast, eliminating downtime and enabling the quick training of installers.
- The dimensions and weights of the structure parts have been optimized so the use of machinery for their handling is unnecessary.
- The number of references that make up the structures has been reduced, facilitating their control and recognition on site.
- 100% bolted joints. No need for welding, cutting or drilling for on site.
- Designed to mount PV modules with retaining bolts, rivets and aluminum fasteners.
- Great adaptability to terrain and high tolerances for foundation positioning deviations.
- Assembly tools provided to facilitate installation without constant metric verifications.
Installation types available
Direct pile driving
Indicated for cohesive soils of medium-firm consistency and granular soils of medium to dense consistency.
Pile driving with pre-drilling
Indicated when direct pile driving is not possible due to the presence of localized rocky areas.
Indicated for soils with poor geomechanical properties, high corrosion or presence of rock.
Indicated for soils with a high content of vegetation and also for mixed soils with deep layers of rock and granular strata on the surface.
Indicated for landfill areas.
