Optimum use of parking space 

Schletter Group has developed a new, modular solar carport system. The Schletter SunRide is characterized by its slim yet stable design. Its self-supporting construction with only one central support enables optimum utilization of parking areas. The Schletter SunRide is now available as a single or double-panel system in all international markets. The Schletter SunRide can be planned as a single-panel system facing south or as a double-panel system in east-west orientation. Schletter manufactures the posts, panels, and purlins of the system from high-strength hot-dip galvanized steel. The 5m cantilever panels can be fitted with both framed modules with standard frame widths and frameless modules. Thanks to its modular design, it can be extended as required up to a maximum length of 50m. The foundation options are flexible and space-saving.The posts can be mounted on drilled concrete piles as a sleeve foundation, minimizing the impact on existing parking areas and is suitable for projects on existing parking spaces. Alternatively, concrete anchors can be used on a strip foundation which is made using flat concrete anchors that are placed on a strip foundation. This is a cost-effective solution, especially for new parking areas. In both cases, the foundation is flush with the ground so there is no obstacle for parked vehicles. The system can be configured with a range of additional options such as rain protection, rain gutters, and drains, lighting or advertising spaces as well as various solutions for cable management and inverter mounting. Schletter offers a static calculation for the SunRide with stability verification in accordance with the applicable national standards as well as a 10-year guarantee.
