T. Werk introduces new elevation system for flat roofs

Aerodynamically optimised, non-penetrative, and installed in no time at all – the Neu-Ulm-based T. Werk GmbH is launching its new TRITON elevation system in May. The innovative system is suitable for every conceivable flat roof, be it foil, bitumen, gravel, grass or trapezoidal sheet. The new installation system is available as two south variants with elevation angles of 10 and 15 degrees, and an east-west model with a 12-degree angle of elevation.

Each ground rail can be used for string cable routing. T. Werk also offers an option with special cable ducts for the module cables, which run under the modules to ensure a tidy and metallurgically shielded cable guide under the whole module field. And the TRITON elevation system can be installed without penetrating the roof itself. The high level of prefabrication, the bolt connections and the modular construction system guarantee a much shorter installation time. T. Werk’s use of a thickcoated and highly resistant zinc-aluminium-magnesium alloy for the coating of the high tensile steel guarantees that the system withstands both ammonia contamination and salty, coastal air. T. Werk also provides a 12-year guarantee.

Optimisation in the wind tunnel

Nor are low load reserves a problem for TRITON. “We tested our system in a boundary layer wind tunnel at the I.F.I. Institute in Aachen”, explains T. Werk managing director Markus Ziegler. “This means we can guarantee that our system has been optimised in terms of stability and aerodynamics, making it also suitable for roofs with low load reserves.”
