ECO-TOP HD

DCE Solar’s Eco-Top HD (High Density) Rooftop Mounting Structure is a cost-effective rooftop design that incorporates the same proven design customized to be the most roof-friendly system on the market.

  • Increases capacity by up to 20% with more wattage per square foot
  • Retains membrane warranties with major roof manufacturers by utilizing rubber pads that do not compromise the integrity of the existing roof
  • Low system PSF requirements results in less ballast and attachments

ECO-TOP-MR

DCE Solar’s Eco-Top MR (Metal Roof) Rooftop Mounting Structure incorporates the same proven design and is ideal for slanted standing seam applications to achieve greater kW output by providing the optimal tilt angle.

  • Accepts all roofing attachments
  • Integrated grounding
  • Effective wire support throughout

ECO-TOP-DS

DCE Solar’s Eco-Top DS (Dual Span) Rooftop Mounting Structure is our newest design configured for front and rear structural module support beams in order to accommodate two modules.

  • Less pieces needed for installation, lower installation cost
  • Reduced number of ballast pads means less slip sheets
  • Ideal for systems greater than 300kW and east/west configuration

All Eco-Top rooftop system modular designs makes installation and system design fast and easy. They require minimal ballast, making them the most economical ballast rooftop solutions available!

In addition to the numerous benefits, the entire assembly has been rated as Class A fire rated by UL for fire safety.

DCE Solar used a combination of Industry Leading Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and rigorous Boundary Layer Wind Tunnel testing to optimize the designs and thoroughly analyze systems to provide the maximum performance and minimal loading. For more information, see below.

INTEGRAL WIND DEFLECTORS

Integral wind deflectors minimize wind load to reduce the overall system load.

MOLDED RUBBER PAD

Durable recycled rubber ballast pads are major roof membrane manufacturer warranty friendly. This results in reduced system loads, while protecting all equipment by minimizing vibration. In most cases, the rubber pad eliminates the need for a slip sheet.

  • UV Resistant (extended lifespan)
  • Recycled Rubber (LEAD credits)
