Types of Solar Canopies:


  • Tandem "T" Design: Consists of a flat-top steel solar canopy array with a single row of center-line columns and equal length overhangs on either side. This steel solar canopy needs large concrete footings to counter-act the wind shear and uplift forces.


  • Two Post Design: The Two-Post solar canopy design consists of two rows of steel support columns supporting a single sloped solar panel array. This achieves smaller footing sizes and less wind shear because of a more stable design.


  • Single Post Semi-Cantilever: This design uses a single column line with the solar panel array hanging mostly over one side. This is a good option for smaller spaces, or alongside other structures. This steel solar canopy needs large concrete footings to counter-act the wind shear and uplift forces.


  • Single Post Full-Cantilever:: This design uses a single column line with the solar panel array hanging entirely over one side. This is a good option for smaller spaces, or alongside other structures. This steel solar canopy needs large concrete footings to counter-act the wind shear and uplift forces.


  • Curved Steel Tandem: Consists of tube steel bent at a radius. Can be formed into a two-sided tree which gradually bends horizontally out both sides. This steel solar canopy needs large concrete footings to counter-act the wind shear and uplift forces.


  • Curved Steel Single: This design consists of tube steel bent at a gradual radius and not attached to any other steel. It makes a 1/2 tree with the column bending right into the array support. This steel solar canopy needs large concrete footings to counter-act the wind shear and uplift forces.


  • Ground Mount Array: Makeup is typically metal posts pounded into the ground and then connected by primary steel and filled out with secondary steel. No footings are needed with this design and is therefore good for covering large land expanses with solar panel arrays.


  • Rooftop Array - Fixed: This is a solar canopy system specifically designed to mount on an existing building's rooftop. Typically built with structural steel as primary steel members and various other steel for secondary members. Drilling and epoxying is typically used to attach the solar canopy to the existing structure.


  • Rooftop Array - Temporary: A self-contained, non-attaching racking system that is held in place with sandbags. Good for when attaching to a building is not an option and removal of the system is planned.


  • The Kaiser Martin Group is capable of providing structural analysis of existing buildings and structures and evaluation of solar panel installation feasability.
