Profiles SPTS-HP and SPTS-VP

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

Applications

Suitable for:
SPTS system with:

  • Single pole tree load-bearing structure SPTS
  • SPS-PMC and SPS-PMF clamps

Allowable configurations

  • 4 modules – landscape 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

  • High performance: the double layer solution, made by horizontal profiles SPTS-HP and with vertical profile SPTS-VP, has an high strength and it is used to educe the supporting structures.
  • No scrap: the optimised length reduces waste and facilitates handling on site.
  • Maximum allowable SPTS load-bearing structure spacing 2130 mm, depending on snow and wind loads calculated according current National Regulations.
  • SPTS load-bearing structures spacing has to be evaluated depending on snow and wind loads for installation area, according National Regulations.
  • Fasten the SPTS-HP profile on load-bearing structures SPTS using the slotted holes on the profile M10 bolts (bolt length ≥ 30 mm).
  • Use the SPTS JOINT to link the SPTS-HP profiles. The connection has to be fixed to the profile using M10 bolts (bolt length ≥ 30 mm).
  • Fix the vertical profile SPTS-VP to the horizontal one SPTS-HP with M10 bolts (bolt length ≥ 30 mm)
  • attention The maximum recommended length of a PV panels row is 20 m to prevent too large thermal expansion.
