BauderSOLAR F PV System

Flat roof photovoltaic mounting system

BauderSOLAR F flat roof photovoltaic solution with a mounting system that is attached to the roof without penetration of the waterproofing system or roof deck.

When to specify...

The BauderSOLAR F photovoltaic (PV) solution for flat roofs features the integrated system in which the solar PV module and the substructure are combined to form a single unit, which is secured to the roof without any penetration of the waterproofing or roof deck. This ensures that the integrity of the roof is upheld throughout the installation of the PV array. The system is designed to be used in conjunction with Bauder single ply or bituminous membranes and is extremely lightweight at 9-12.5 Kg/m², depending on module selected.

Key features

■□ Risk-free, zero penetration installation.
■□ Single source for integrated design of waterproofing and PV.
■□ Weighs just 9-12.5kg/sq m.
■□ Range of modules delivering up to 455w per panel.
■□ Panels designed to create a 12º angle.


■□ Integrity of waterproofing upheld as a result of drill-free installation
■□ Welded installations are considerably lighter than ballasted solutions - most ballasted systems weigh at least 25kg/sq m
■□ Full guarantee covering waterproofing, PV components, modules and installation
■□ High energy generation with minimum 16.82% panel efficiency
■□ Lightweight panels are quick and easy to install, making it a cost-effective solution.
■□ Low angle makes for optimum energy generation and easier to overcome planning issues.
■□ Maintenance of the waterproofing membrane is very easy as individual panels can be removed if required.

Environmental credentials

Renewable energies, such as solar PV, are derived from natural processes that are replenished constantly and are therefore becoming increasingly important. A combination of the environmental impacts associated with burning fossil fuels and the spiralling costs of energy are driving a focus towards dealing with climate change by increasing renewable energy usage.
