Profile SPS-HP

The heavy-duty aluminium profile suitable for photovoltaic installations with large spacing support

Applications

Suitable for:
System SPS with:

  • Single pole load-bearing structure SPS
  • Clamps SPS-PMC and SPS-PMF

System DFS with:

  • Double foot load-bearing structure DFS
  • Clamps SPS-PMC and SPS-PMF

Allowable configurations

  • 2 modules – portrait disposition

Versions

  • steel S235JR according EN 10025-2: 2004, hot dip galvanized (≥ 80 µm) according EN ISO 1461:2009
  • bolts and nuts in stainless steel A2-70 according EN ISO 3506 1/2;2010

Features

  • Heavy duty: the profile SPS-HP has an high load-bearing capacity and it is used to reduce the supporting structures.
  • No scrap: the optimised length reduces waste and facilitates handling on site.
  • Maximum allowable spacing 2800 mm, depending on snow and wind loads calculated according current National Regulations.
  • SPS and DFS load-bearing structures spacing has to be evaluated depending on snow and wind loads for installation area, according National Regulations.
  • Fasten the SPS-HP profile on load-bearing structures (SPS and DFS) using bolts and nuts M 10 (bolt’s length ≥ 30 mm) through the slotted holes.
  • Use the SPS Joint to join profiles SPS-HP. The connection has to be locked with bolts and nuts M 12 (bolt’s length ≥ 70 mm).
  • attention The maximum recommended length of a PV panels row is 20 m to prevent too large thermal expansion.
