The COMPACTMETAL system developed around 2019 with patented technology has already seen its success globally. For flat roofs, the company has introduced its SN2 product in Europe, suited for higher class of panels and the S/S+ systems in India suited for non-penetrative requirements.

AeroTOOL is the company’s visualisation and planning software that supports the client in developing the layouts and computing the wind loading forces on the system. The structural analysis outcome is the foundation of the warranties which we offer to our clients. An Engineering hub is set up in India to work on Aerotool and cater to the clients globally which are on the lookout for fresh and experienced engineers in India.

COMPACTFLAT S System is one of the unique and flagship systems of Aerocompact. The aerodynamic design has excellent structural properties and requires significantly less ballasts than other systems on the market. The system is wind tunnel tested, UL, CE & TUV certified for its technology and strength and can withstand wind speed up to 250kmph.


S system is a ballasted racking solution with non-penetrative philosophy to ensure the safety and reliability of the existing waterproofing of the roof. The ballast can be made of concrete to create a counterweight to resist the uplift forces of wind. Ballast Trays can be used to keep the ballast blocks depending on the requirement.

The average installation time is approximately 5 minutes for 1kWp of system. The number of components developed are minimal, light weight and ensures the ease of stocking and installation.

The product range comes in various segments of S10, S15 & S10+. The S10 and S15 provides fixed inclination of 10 and 15 true South respectively to fulfill the optimum angle requirement of India. S10 & S15 systems come with wind deflectors to deflect the pressure created by wind from one panel row to the next one.

S10+ provides East-West solution with 10 inclinations for the roofs oriented other than true South. S10+ can be used to increase the capacity over the roofs. The estimated increase in the capacity ranges between 10~15% thus increasing the generation numbers.
