Do you value the advantages of quick module assembly with our insertion system and would also like excellent rear module ventilation? Then we have exactly the right solution for your trapezoidal metal roofs, using the combination of our insertion rails and our various short rails. Regardless of whether the modules are portrait or landscape, the substructure is constructed according to the same principle. You decide, depending on your rear module ventilation requirements, on the height of your short rail, and fasten these directly to the trapezoidal roof using building authority-approved thin sheet screws – this means you can choose between two short rails of different heights.

The insertion rails are placed on the short rails and are fastened with pre-assembled cross rail connector set C ES M8. The complete assembly of the components – whether the short rails are assembled or insertion rails fastened – is done from above. With the combination of our insertion rails on short rails, you can combine the aesthetic appearance of your PV system thanks to the insertion system with optimal rear module ventilation for yield optimisation. Fewer components – completely pre-assembled – make assembly easy and quick.

Further details and properties of the mounting system can be found in the mounting instructions.
