Solar balcony railings – an alternative for solar roof-top systems

PV modules being only visible on house roofs or solar plants is now a thing of the past. a2-solar continuously explores new fields of applications for photovoltaic elements, designing and customer-tailoring advanced solar solutions according to customer ideas.

  • Onto facades, we integrate photovoltaic modules of different sizes and shapes as well as different glass surfaces and color shades.
  • Our solar elements may result into a in-roof system by designing solar roof tiles.
  • Sun-porches and patios, we ennoble with bright solar modules.
  • By integrating solar panels, your carport turns into a “green” power plant to generate your own electricity for your home or your future e-mobility
  • We provide customized solar elements for balcony railings

Thus, a2-solar turns conventional construction elements into a profitable solar innovation which already today complies with all the requirements stipulated by upcoming energy saving ordinances.

Planning aspects

When planning the installation of a solar balcony systems, the sun orientation is of vital importance. The solar yields are the greatest when the balcony faces south sides. This direction ensures to catch the highest solar radiation. But also when facing to he east-south and west direction, the solar radiation may result into considerable yields by implementing intelligent power optimizers.

The balcony or terrace parapet/ railing/ grid construction itself as well as solar storage systems and electrical integration options, etc. should be coordinated and discussed in advance with local/ regional balcony builders and electric/ solar installers. All metal or timber construction, installation and construction works as well as the electrical installation need to be carried out by local craftsmen & installers on site.

PV modules in balcony railings – smart and simple

Due to easy access, the planning and installion of photovoltaic modules as solar balcony solutions is much easier than solar installations on roof-tops. Our solar balcony elements are simply mounted to the sides or floor. Furthermore, conventional railings do not show any economic benefits. But apart from the economical aspect, solar balcony modules feature further major advantages.

Optical design

Every owner of a solar system knows that the shiny blue or black front of solar modules only covers a rather ugly back sight. A complete assembly kit commonly includes visible cable routings and junction boxes - what is very much inacceptable for such an aesthetic highlight as a solar balcony. This is why a2-solar skilfully plans its solar balcony modules with covering cable routings and connection points by wire conducts. Our customer decides upon the desired glass surfaces and color shades of our double-glass modules.

Photovoltaic elements for balconies is not an „off-the-shelf“ product

a2-solar designs, plans and manufactures all of its solar balcony systems individually upon customer requests and ideas. The result: an economically profitable and optically appealing solar eye-catcher with refinancing guarantee – always following our slogan “NEVER SAY NEVER” – everything is possible.
