RapidRoot Solar PV foundations
Remote sites, poor access, hurricane zones?
Where sites have poor access, poor soils or extreme weather conditions standard solar PV structure foundation systems struggle. RapidRoot excels in these problematic sites. Bring projects back in line, resolve problem soil areas. Forget ground anchors, RapidRoot has the solution.
Rapidroot Start foundations for fixed and simple solar tracker PV frames. These solutions are Ideal for remote sites with poor access where install machinery for simple driven C profiles can't access. START is optimal for sites with bad access, poor soils and generally smaller parks or problem areas of larger PV parks.
Rapidroot Mag foundations for very poor soils or zones where your solar panels maybe exposed to hurricanes, cyclones and general extreme weather conditions, the 60mm mag rapid roots are the ideal solution to guarantee the performance of your park in this difficult sites. They are also suitable for larger solar tracker PV systems.
Standard pile size & cap models
All pile caps available in both pile diameters
3 pile unit
Up to 40kN traction load*
4 pile unit
Up to 55kN traction load*
6 pile unit
Up to 60kN traction load*
*All indicated load capacities are typical maximums in real soil scenarios, fully factored, not theoretical vales vastly overestimating capacities. larger units (up to 16 pile models) are available and can provide capacities in access of 120kN in traction.
Magnapile is our proprietary magnesium-all-zinc alloy coated pile and is at the heart of our systems. These are high tensile steel piles with ultra high corrosion resistance far superior to standard hot dip gavanisation, MagnaPile meets the design requirements of residential and civil works in even the most corrosive soil types.
This is not just a coating, there is a manufacturing method behind this and years of R&D that guarantees the integrity of the protection during the design life of the project. There is simply no comparison to anything else on the market.
RapidRoot pile load guide
Approximate loading capacities in traction
Approximate loading guide in traction based on a given soil SPT bore hole value and applying safety factors for real world approximations and not fantasy marketing data. Fixed 2m deep piles serves only for illustration purposes and would be optimised in real world scenarios. Actual pile cap specification and pile depth must be calculated by a Rapidroot engineer.
Securing your structures in extreme conditions
We can adapt Rapidroot pile cap models to any post type structure. Our speciality is resolving special load problems with custom solutions, give us a try, our engineers think outside the box.Enquire
