Can you provide an overview of Aerocompact India’s product offerings and the unique features that set them apart from other solar mounting suppliers in the region?
Aerocompact India’s pioneering product line-up, represented by the COMPACTFLAT and COMPACTMETAL series, is reshaping the landscape of solar mounting solutions through innovative design and unparalleled benefits. Seamlessly integrated into our proprietary AEROTOOL design software, these systems epitomise reliability and user-friendliness, underpinned by a 25-year product warranty, CE certification, and UL 2703 certification. Streamlining the design process, the AEROTOOL software simplifies planning while generating comprehensive project reports featuring structural insights and a precise bill of material.
The COMPACTFLAT assortment caters to flat roofs, offering a diverse array of tilt angles and row spacing options to suit every project’s needs. Especially noteworthy, the COMPACTFLAT S system has redefined norms by replacing traditional rail substructures with innovative aluminium brackets, receiving worldwide recognition including installations at Changi Airport, IKEA stores in Europe etc
For metal sheet roofs, the COMPACTMETAL collection is a game-changer, covering trapezoidal as well as standing seam sheet variants. The TS and TL range of products available in India provides flexibility for Aerocompact customers to place panels in portrait or landscape orientation with multiple options of clearance as well as tilting towards south.
How has Aerocompact India adapted its product lineup to cater to the specific needs and challenges of the Indian and South Asian markets?
Aerocompact India has adeptly tailored its product range to address the unique requisites and challenges presented by the Indian and South Asian markets. The incorporation of grounding pins directly into module clamps showcases their innovative approach, ensuring a steadfast electrical connection by penetrating the anodized aluminium coating. This not only enhances stability but also bolsters reliability between the module frame, clamp, and roof fixation elements.
Further underscoring their adaptability, the utilisation of protection pads crafted from absorbent felt material, along with an adhesive strip, signifies a proactive solution for water absorption on Reinforced Cement Concrete (RCC) roofs. In addition, the introduction of the ballast tray designed to support concrete weight blocks offers a practical answer for installation on diverse roofing structures and custom load distribution across the roof.
Can you share any recent product innovations or updates that have been introduced by Aerocompact India to enhance the performance and efficiency of solar mountings?
Our latest breakthrough, the TSE15 product in COMPACTMETAL TS series stands out for its innovation. With a height of 80 mm, these rails ensure adequate roof clearances, facilitating rear ventilation while accommodating optimizer installation. The beauty of the raised short rail lies in its seamless integration – installation requires minimal additional assembly effort, merely a slight extension. To streamline the process, project planning in the Aerotool includes a recommendation for the appropriate bit extension, ensuring its availability on-site. This marks a significant stride towards bolstering solar mounting performance, efficiency, and compatibility with diverse roofing structures.
