STANDARD

GROUND MOUNT STANDARD

A simplified solution with the use of universal steel sections and traditional connection methods. These sections are integrated with our aluminium rail design to optimise mounting of solar panels.

Abridging the design minimises the cost of the system and streamlines remote projects. Can be adopted to rough terrains by utilising large adjustment capabilities and flexibility of the system.

Based on your project needs, our team of engineers will make adjustments, and put together a solution based on your requirements. Adjacent foundation inputs are also covered by our design team.
