When designing a PV-system, of course you want to maximise the yield within the given roof surface. But as you’re going closer to the roof edge, wind load is higher and more unpredictable, so your ballast plans need special attention. From now on, Autarco covers you on this.

Helios will automatically define the edge zone for your building, according to relevant standards, and will check whether your modules are within this zone. If so, the ballast will be adjusted, so that even in severe weather conditions your modules will stay in place.

As an addition, you can now set a custom padding area, if you want to keep a free zone next to the roof edge for accessibility or safety measurements or to prevent shading from a high roof ledge. You can do this by selecting an installation area > PV layout > padding. It’s all up to you.
