Matrix symmetrical series
Symmetrical flat roof mounting system
The Autarco Matrix mounting system has grown into one of the most popular mounting systems for solar panels on flat roofs, based on quality, service and ease of installation. Developed together with installers, years of knowledge and experience was combined into a system that is ideal for both large and small installations. Thanks to the smart and stable construction, ultra-fast assembly is possible whilst ensuring the solar panels are optimally and safely supported.

What is the difference between Autarco's Matrix universal and Autarco's Matrix symmetrical system?
When the panels are installed in rows facing south (as is the case with the Matrix universal), there needs to be a distance between these rows to prevent the panels causing shadow on each other. In a symmetrical system this is not the case, so more modules can be installed within the same area. In a symmetrical system the yield per module is a little less, but the total yield from the area is higher.
Are all roofs suitable for the installation of solar panels?
Autarco offers different mounting solutions for pitched roofs, depending on the roofing material. The yield of a PV system depends on the pitch and the azimuth of the modules, where the ideal situation is a south facing roof with a pitch of 25-35°.
Flat roof systems are provided with ballast tiles to make sure the modules will stay in place. You should check the load bearing capacity of your roof to make sure it will hold the system, which can be anything between 15 and 25 kg/m². It is advisable to contact your roofing installer as well, to confirm the roofing material is suitable.
Obstacles on the roof and next to the building may cause shadows on the modules for certain parts of the day. This has a negative affect the yield of the total system, so this has to be taken into account on designing a PV system.
My roof has a drainage incident, will this affect the installation of the solar panels?
Up to a gradient of 3° this will cause no problem. For steeper gradients, special precautions may be necessary. Your installer can inform you on this.
