Typical Application
Wind Analysis
The Big Foot Solar Cast Frame is an extremely
quick to install solar panel solution. Incorporating
the ballast into the framework means the system is
reliable and simple to install.
Big Foot Systems are currently using Computational
Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software to calculate site
specific wind load conditions.
With a large surface area, the Big Foot Cast Frame
solution is ideal for roofs with lower strength or
slippery surfaces. This type of frame also lends
itself to non-permenant ground installations.
Standard 10°, 20° and 30° panel systems are
available from stock. Custom layouts to order.
The hot dipped galvanised steel framework
ensure maximum corrosion resistance for all
year weather protection.

Cast concrete ballast feet
Galvanised fixtures and fittings
A-frames and fixings
Solar panel clips
Using the industry-leading ANSYS wind profiling
program, analysis is run based on the solar panel
size, quantity, pitch and mass of the panel then
calculated to determine the ballast requirement for
the solar support system.

BALLAST
Big Foot Systems CFD modelling is based on
customer supplied information and available to
customers dependent upon scheme size.
Concrete Feet
Big Foot Solar Cast Frame uses cast concrete feet
with channels moulded into the top face and bushes,
allowing fixing of 40mm x 40mm box section or strut.
The 80kg cast concrete foot is supplied with bushes
to take bolts.
