Solar

Using car parks and other land into efficient, solar generation hotspots.
Our solar carports are shelters for your vehicles which come in many different designs, and each is fitted with lightweight solar panels generating free, green energy for your business.

Inside 2 Outside Ltd have integrated 3 technologies: Solar PV, battery storage and electric vehicle charge-points to make solar carports and canopies a fully integrated solution, we are also the leading small sun shade canopy suppliers UK wide.

The resulting “green” electricity generated can be used to charge electric vehicles via integral EV charge points.

T-FRAME

The T-Frame design has the advantage of minimum ground footprint. Vertical posts are positioned between standard 2.4m carpark bays with a typical 3 bay span. The double wing T-Frame mirrors the single wing T-Frame and features up to 6 bays spanned with only two posts. The T-Frame design is best suited to payed-for parking where the client will not accept any loss of bays and their associated revenue streams. The T-Frame is also suitable for multi-storey car park top decks as it can be fixed directly into the building columns making it a perfect solar carport for minimum ground footprint.

V-FRAME

The V-Frame design features a lightweight and cost effective frame with limited footprint between parking bays of 1.2m. Vertical posts are positioned between standard 2.4m carpark bays with a typical 3 bay span. Vertical posts are all less than the width of bay markings (<0.1m) and so do not interfere with carpark usage. The double V-Frame spans up to 6 bays between columns. The V-Frame design is able to deliver our lowest-cost-per watt installation where project financials are the overriding design criteria, this solar carport is perfect for those looking for a cost effective and lightweight frame.

PORTAL FRAME

The Portal-Frame design allows for full coverage of parking bays and isles. Maximum spans of 15.6m allow for standard bay-isle-bay spans to be covered. The TerraceSlope design is best suited to sites that require total coverage of the parking area, such as multi-story carpark rooftops or goods yards. This solar carport is perfect for those looking to gain full coverage over small to large areas.
