Ground Mounted - 16 Panels
This system is designed to easily screw into the ground that has a high clay content, making it a fast and popular solution, particularly for small to medium sized projects.
We know that sometimes ground conditions can be problematic, whether it’s because of a slight incline or just the simple fact of the land not being even. To get around this, we’ve ensured that our Ground Anchor system allows greater adjustability in the height of the individual posts of the frame, as well as the positioning of the posts within the Ground Anchors.
The framing is designed to work with most solar panels, allowing it to universally suit most projects and with no limit to how long you can make the array, it allows you to make the most of the space available.
Our standard structure is designed to support 2 solar panels high in the portrait orientation, as this allows more space within the array for more solar panels. There isn’t a limit to how many solar panels that can be installed in a single line.
Our mounting rail profiles are produced from high quality aluminium, which contracts during colder weather and expands during warmer weather. While this expansion is less than a couple of millimeters a year, it’s important to leave regular gaps to allow this natural process occur.
This is why we have a separate component called the Flexible Connector, which fixes into one side of the mounting rail and controls this expansion without compromising the length of the overall array.
It’s important for us that, as a sustainable energy solution, our system settles within its surrounding environment. This is why we’ve ensured it creates minimal ground disturbance and can be incorporated into land which holds livestock.
We add wind bracing in the form of tension cable to the back of the frames at certain intervals along the solar panel row, to provide added stability against lateral movement. We calculate where you need to place these wind bracing sets and they’ll be marked on the drawing layouts that we provide you at the point of order.
We recommend hiring a 2.5 tonne cylinder head hydraulic auger unit, with a reverse option for installing the Ground Anchors. Sometimes the ground may need a little more pressure applying to it and for this a 4-5 tonne auger unit is better suited. We’ll lend you an auger adapter that fits the auger unit to help screw them in.
