New: YouTube tutorials for the Schletter Configurator 3.0

You can now plan roof systems quickly and easily, using the Schletter Configurator 3.0 directly in Google Maps. Our new YouTube tutorials will show you how.

The Schletter Configurator 3.0 makes planning roof systems so much easier. Users mark the rooftop areas to be covered directly in Google Maps. Once the roof pitch is entered, the system calculates its exact size and, if required, suggests the optimal covering depending on alignment. By entering a postcode or location, the regional standard loads for wind and snow are also automatically calculated by the system – worldwide.

To enable you to use this tool optimally, we now offer YouTube tutorials in addition to our webinars. The tutorials will help you familiarise yourself with the functions of the Configurator by using realistic example projects. More information is available on our YouTube channel. Check it out!

ProLine roll-out: it’s all go!

Over the past few weeks, we have been busy packing sample cases featuring our new pitched roof system. These are now making their way to the trade.

Lighter, more resilient and easier to assemble: Our entirely newly designed pitched roof system ProLine offers customers a number of advantages.

Our wholesale partners in Germany and Europe can convince themselves of this in person, even in these days of social distancing. Our sample cases, packed with great care, will be with them in the next few days, if they haven’t arrived already. We’re looking forward to receiving feedback from the trade!

Find out here what the new pitched roof system ProLine can do and how it is superior to its predecessors.

Tributes of the month

One of the largest ground-mounted systems in Germany, a citizen-funded project in Australia and a local photovoltaic system in Kasthal, Lower Bavaria.

We are supplying EnBW with our FS Duo mounting system for one of the largest solar parks in Germany: The two ground-mounted systems have a total output of 300 MWp and are currently being constructed in the Märkisch-Oderland district of Brandenburg.

You can read more about this project in PV Magazine.

On the outskirts of Canberra, Australia, a 1.2 MWp system was connected to the grid with our tracker. Its very special feature: Majura Valley Community Solar Farm has been funded entirely by citizens.

We may be a globally active company, but we continue to realise local projects: in Kasthal, Lower Bavaria, you’ll find a 2.3 MWp plant on our FS Duo ground-mounted system, just thirty minutes from our headquarters. Our long-standing partner Elektro Eckert from Landshut has developed the project.
