Avila – Lean-to style groundmount

Our innovative lean-to galvanised steel trusses allow you to maximise the space you have at your home or business by allowing you to install a solar array next to a pre-existing wall.  This means avoiding the need for expensive groundworks.  Our purlin design also means that you need less truss sections to hold your solar panels.

Dimensions depend on the number of panels and the layout.  Information in the options tab below.

Our kits include premium quality Solar PV panels and are compatible with SEAI grants

Our standard price includes delivery and installation of the bare structure and related panels.  Additional elements such as groundworks and additional electrical equipment and commissioning can be arranged.  Please get in touch to discuss these elements with us directly. The steel elements of the canopy kit is available with a range of finishes.

Do you have a sunny wall space that is under used?

Is your roof is not suitable for Solar PV panels?

Our modular steel lean-to groundmount kit could be the solution to your needs.  We have designed our trusses to brace off a pre-existing wall, allowing you to maximse the space.  Backgarden walls can be upgraded to solar arrays without losing much garden space. Your new solar array will be generating solar power to lower your electricity costs by c.€1,600 per year for a 12 panel setup.

Our lean-to ground mount solution is available in a range of sizes to match your specific requirements.  They can be added together easily to form larger arrays.  Our standard kit are in 8 panel and 12 panel kits and come with timber purlins.  The purlins can be upgraded to galvanised steel or aluminium rails on request.  Each solar panel is normally c.1.75m long X c.1.1m wide.  The structure itself is normally bolted to a concrete base.  As part of the standard kit, we can deliver and install to almost anywhere in Ireland.  The kit comes fully installed by our team and an electrical commissioning service is available on request at an additional fee.

The uprights are made of galvanised steel posts and the purlins from c18 treated timber or folded galvanised steel purlins depending on the spans between the rafter sections.  All structures come with full CE certification.  Our structures are fully grantable under the SEAI grant schemes.

Depending on the number of panels, the kit could save you around €1200 per year in electricity costs.  It could generate around 4000KWh of clean, green electricity per year and c. 200KGs of carbon emissions are avoided.

The fully installed standard kit includes:

  1. A heavy-duty CE certified galvanised steel frame
  2. Treated timber purlins (though we have steel and aluminium rail options available on request)
  3. Solar panels

Optional extras include:

  1. Preparation of groundworks
