SolarSpeed South is available in 10°, 12.5° and 15° angles as standard.


Based on an optimum combination of shadow formation (spacing) and yield (angle) the following configurations are offered as standard: 10°-1500mm, 12.5°-1600mm and 15°-1750mm. A combination of these angles and spacing dimensions, or even other spacing dimensions, can always be provided upon request.

Landscape & Portrait

South configurations are available both in landscape and portrait.

Compatible with Any Solar Panel

The SolarSpeed base units can be used with both 60-cell as well as 72-cell panels.

Extremely fast installation

The ‘Click&Fit’ frame simply slots together to simplify and speed up installation.

Pre-assembled base units

The use of pre-assembled base units not only ensures a considerable saving in installation time, but it also drastically reduces the number of loose components on the roof!

Made from zinc-magnesium* steel

Zinc-Magnesium* steel is extremely robust and has self-healing properties, making it ideally suited for applications subject to stringent requirements in terms of long-term corrosion resistance.

Ballast with Ballast Holders

  • These slide easily and fast onto the base profile of the base unit. 
  • Extremely suitable in case of limited ballast.  
  • Can also be installed behind or between the panels. 

Ballast with L-profiles

  • By using the L-profiles, the ballast tiles can be distributed over the length of the panel, which makes them suitable for areas requiring a lot of ballast.
  • The central support prevents the L-profiles from bending and the latter are secured with self-tapping screws.
  • These L-profiles can be used to create an additional connection between the base units to make the installation even more solid and sound.

SolarSpeed Calculator

Calculate your projects quickly and efficiently with the use of our free online software!

Decide upon the location and the environment, draw a sketch of the roof, select the panels and the installation frame, and after drawing out the PV installation, our software will calculate the correct ballast plan.

All the information regarding the roof loads, the installation structure and position is recorded into a clearly laid out report, including a complete list of components and the materials necessary for your project.

Types of

To protect the roof covering, there are three different types of base unit: a protective rubber pad, PP foot or concrete foot.

Achieving optimum support for your project will depend on the position, the slope of the roof, the type of roof covering, etc.

We can always help you to select the most suitable type for your particular installation. 

Protective rubber pads

The base units are fitted with protective rubber pads as standard.

The pads are 15mm thick, they ensure good drainage and they also provide good protection for the roof covering.

For PVC roofs, the protective rubber pads always include an aluminium substrate.

PP feet

By incorporating PP feet, the installation will be slightly raised from the roof surface. This helps to further improve the drainage and also compensates for any minor unevenness of the roof surface.

This also reduces the point loads on the roof given that the weight of the installation will be distributed over a wider surface area.

If PP feet are used, there is the possibility, upon request, of including an extra protective rubber pad to provide extra protection for the roof covering.

Concrete feet

Avasco concrete feet are extremely suitable for gravel roofs as the gravel only needs to be removed in few places. The frames are supported by and are secured to the concrete feet so the work can be performed above the layer of gravel.

Given that the structure is secured to the concrete feet, the latter therefore also form part of the necessary ballast for your installation. This therefore reduces the number of normal ballast tiles required.

To give the roof covering extra protection, the concrete feet are always fitted onto a protective rubber pad.


Portrait configuration

Depending on the dimensions and the strength of the roof structure, there is the possibility of opting for a portrait configuration.

SolarSpeed South Portrait is supplied with 2500mm spacing.

Other spacing dimensions are available upon request.
