Physical dimensions, rather than system output, is the best way to measure your needs. The geometric shape of the system layout, and if the
array is split into multiple sets of panels, are the true determinants. This, of course, varies greatly from installation to installation.
Therefore, we recommended that you calculate a precise number before ordering.
To get this figure, simply calculate the perimeter area around your system.
As a rule of thumb, most solar panels are approximately 900mm wide X 1600mm long. If you have an array that is 10 panels across and 2 panels
high (with no gap between the rows) you would need approximately 1600 x 2 for one side and 900 x 10 for the top side. So to cover all 4
sides you would need 1600 x 2 x 2 = 6.4M(to cover both sides) and 900 x 10 x 2 = 18M. There you will need a minimum of 24.4M. Be sure to add
extra material to cut 45 degree angles on the corners so required is a further 600mm for each outside corner. 4 x 600mm
Total required for this 20 panel system would be….
Top and bottom=18M
Total=26.8M (one kit)
We realize that all arrays may not be this simple and there may be multiple arrays on a roof. If you can map out the arrays, you can easily
calculate your requirements for the screen. Our mesh may be purchased as part of a kit with a 30 roll with 100 clips or you may purchase it
separately. We also sell 10M expansion kits if one kit will be just a bit too short!
