HD Beam 450 Adjustable

Big Foot Systems Ltd

The Big Foot Systems Heavy Duty range offers a robust cost effective support alternative to on-site concrete constructions. With minimal on-site assembly and easy positioning, the HD Cube and HD Beam products aid load distribution and are non-penetrative – helping to protect the roof finish.

Big Foot HD Cube:

The HD Cube offers a complete, efficient and robust solution for supporting heavier services on flat roofs. Ideal for the support of large plant rooms, chillers and large air handling units. The HD Cube provides a simplistic approach without the necessity of casting traditional concrete plinths early on in the construction project.

Big Foot HD Beam:

The HD Beam was developed as a lighter weight companion to the HD Cube. Typical applications include large chillers, large air handling units and heavy pipes and services. HD Beam is a robust but flexible solution where space may be limited, or there is a requirement to position directly over existing structural roof beams. With M24 stud built into both legs to accommodate roof falls, the requirement for additional adjustment is not usually needed. An optional, ‘quick fitting’ clamp kit ensures a rigid fix back to the services, or secondary steelwork.

Custom framework:

There are many situations at roof level that direct the designer away from a standard framework approach. Limited space, existing upstands, lightweight roofs and other services may all contribute to detailing an appropriate custom support solution. With the aid of technical surveyors and using ANSYS FEA software, Big Foot can offer custom made one-off solutions to meet the demanding environment present on some of today's roofs.

Wind analysis:

Big Foot Systems are currently using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software to calculate site specific wind load conditions. Using the industry-leading ANSYS wind profiling program, analysis is run based on the unit size, quantity and mass then calculated to determine over turning moment and destabilizing wind speed. Big Foot Systems CFD modelling is based on customer supplied information and available to customers dependent upon scheme size.

AlkorSolar Support Rail

RENOLIT Cramlington Ltd

The ultra light AlkorSolar fixing system makes it possible to attach solar panels onto the roof without the need of extra ballast or perforation of the roofing membrane. The development of the system has taken into account the abilities of PVC roofing membranes to have compatible elements welded directly to them. The method will allow a variety of different solar panels to be installed quickly and cost effectively.

AlkorSolar as a base for crystalline photovoltaic panels:

The installation of photovoltaic elements onto a roof will in 90% of cases be in the form of crystalline panels. These panels have the highest power output which makes them profitable even for smaller roof surfaces. The AlkorSolar system functions here as a base for the attachment of an aluminium sub-structure. The aluminium framework provides the most efficient angle relative to the sun for the PV–panel. The only additional weight that needs to be taken into account is that of the aluminium support structure and the solar panels.

The AlkorSolar system for attaching amorphous solar cells onto a continuous support:

Where the supporting structure of the roof is lighter and more flexible, such as industrial and warehouse buildings and the roof area is quite large the selection of amorphous solar cells laminated or glued onto a backing will be a more obvious choice. The lower power output of the amorphous solar cells is largely compensated for, by the low price per Peak Watt. Less loss of output under cloudy weather conditions. The continuous supports for the solar cells are fastened directly to the AlkorSolar system.

Advantages:

  • Lightweight: Depending on the choice of the solar panels and the aluminium construction, minimal extra weight.
  • No penetration of the roofing membrane.
  • Fast, simple and safe installation.
  • Maintenance and repair of solar panels made simple.
  • Crystalline solar panels or amorphous solar cells on continuous supports can be fastened directly onto the AlkorSolar system.
  • The AlkorSolar system can be used on existing or new PVC-P roofing membranes (please check with the technical department at Renolit to confirm if the existing roof satisfies the criteria for installing the AlkorSolar system).
