The Solar Support range includes Solar Fix-it frames and Solar Leg frames to provide a quickly installed solution using 600 x 600 x 50 mm 40 kg paving slabs as ballast. Standard systems for 10°, 20° and 30° panel systems are available from stock and delivered flat pack in kit form. Custom layouts are available to order.

The company’s service includes using computational fluid dynamics to take into account local wind speed and topography to calculate the optimum amount of ballast for a frame.
