Exploiting Synergy Effects on Your Roof – with the SolarVert® System Build-up Green roofs offer a wide range of benefits. They enhance thermal insulation, protect the waterproofing, offer a natural habitat for plants and animals, retain storm water, improve the microclimate and create important garden and recreational areas. The ZinCo Solar Base adds a significant new benefit: the integration of solar energy use into the green roof build-up. The function of a green roof as an ecological compensation area is, therefore, fully maintained with Solar Base, which is incorporated into the SolarVert®...

Some Basic Information about Solar Energy on Roofs What does the level of energy generated depend upon? Location Inclination, orientation The more sunshine, the better. The daily level of solar radiation on the panels results from the location in terms of latitude. Available solar radiation / global radiation Information about the annual global radiation (kWh / m²)is available in climate maps. Orientation (direction / Azimuth angle) The Azimuth angle defines the level of deviation from the southerly orientation. The smaller it is, the higher the efficiency of the solar panels. Defines the deviation...

Your Safety is Our Priority: Fall Protection Fallnet® SB 200 Rail Fall protection systems are required to prevent people falling off flat roofs while working. Such work includes maintenance work on solar energy systems. Single fixing points are usually not very useful as the solar panels often reach close to the roof edge. The ZinCo Fallnet ® SB 200 Rail fixing device offers a solution for this situation. It has been designed especially for use in combination with ZinCo Solar Base SB 200. The periphery of the existing photovoltaic system is also used for the fixing device. All you need in addition...

The Figures Prove It: Green Roofs Improve the Efficiency of PV Modules Permanently The temperature-related change in the performance of a module is demonstrated by the temperature co-efficient. This depends on the product and is up to 0.5 % per Kelvin (°K) with standard solar panels. Air temperature weather station [°C] M 2 S module on bitumen [°C] M 1 S module on bitumen [°C] M 3 G module on green roof [°C] The temperature of Standard Test Conditions, by which these modules were measured, is 25 °C. In practice, the temperature of the modules increases considerably due to solar radiation. This...
