With the model "W", SOLARWING is also covered the roadway between the parking rows.

No obstruction by supports when parking and opening the doors, fixing the charging stations to the supports from the carport.


In both models, the structural parts in wood have a constructive weather protection. The wooden construction is therefore hardly exposed to sun and weather and therefore extremely low-maintenance and durable. 
The outside of the laterally terminating trusses are clad with weather-resistant panels. Thus, these directly weathered parts are also protected from sun and weather.

In the FLASH model, the wooden supports stand on a steel foot sill, which prevents the wooden support from coming into contact with the ground and protects it from rising damp.

In case of flat terrain, a hot-dip galvanized steel profile HEA 160 is used. 

In case of uneven terrain, an IPE 360 can be used. With it can be used
differences of 20cm from the ground can be compensated without having to adjust the without having to adjust the length of the supports.  

For the SOLARWING model, larger terrain unevenness can be easily compensated with different length supports. 

Support structure

The supporting structure consists of a wood/steel mixed construction. Modern connections provide sufficient stability and guarantee easy and quick assembly. 

The main beams are assembled ready for assembly and delivered to the construction site delivered.

Due to the sophisticated geometry of the supporting structure, practically all wooden parts have constructive weather protection and are hardly exposed to the sun or weathered by rain. 

Water based varnishes

Bild von unserer Malerei in der ProduktionshalleWater-based coatings have become practically indispensable in the wood industry. The water-thinnable system coatings do not contain any volatile organic compounds (VOC). VOCs are largely responsible for the formation of ground-level ozone (summer smog) and have been taxed with an incentive tax since January 1, 2000.

Opaque shades according to RAL or NCS

In the case of opaque painting of wooden structures (premium thick-layer stain), the color shades can be freely selected according to RAL or NCS color charts. In this color treatment, the wooden structure is provided with intermediate sanding and filling.


Wood varnishes

For color treatment with glaze (base glaze), we offer you a wide selection from our glaze fan. With this color treatment method, the wood structure remains visible.


Greyback varnishes

Water-based, open-pore pre-graying glaze with film preservation. Pre-grayizing glazes are used to make the discoloration of div. softwoods exposed to weathering appear uniform.


Roofing / photovoltaic system

The FLASH carport model can be covered with an in-roof or on-roof photovoltaic system.

In-roof photovoltaic system

In the case of the in-roof PV system, the modules also serve as the roof cladding. The modules are visible from below. Translucent bifacial glass modules are used.

    Bifacial modules not only use the direct solar
    solar radiation on the roof, but also the 
    indirect and diffuse light on the back.
    Depending on the incidence of light and the
    radiance of the of the floor covering or the parked
    cars, bifacial modules provide up to 25%                                additional power.

Advantages and disadvantages of the in-roof system compared to the on-roof system


  • aesthetically very appealing roof covering
  • immediately recognizable as a PV system
  • brighter under the roof
  • more yield due to additional power
  • more subsidies due to in-roof system
  • filigree roof edge
  • double lifetime of the modules (glass/glass technology)


  • higher price in the purchase
  • grid dimension of the modules must be taken into account
  • in winter condensation on bottom glass surface possible
  • Depending on the system provider

On-roof PV system

In the case of the on-roof system, the water-bearing roof cladding is a profiled sheet. The modules are screwed onto the profiled sheets with a substructure.

Substructure PV modules

When designing the substructure and fastening points, the local
the local conditions regarding wind and snow load are taken into account. 

In most cases, the use the mounting system Speedrail from K2.


For rooftop installation, conventional framed glass/laminate modules from various suppliers can be used.

We prefer Full Black modules which are fixed with black clamps.

Electrics and inverter

All string cables are laid invisibly. In the case of the on-roof system, the cables are located between the profiled sheet and the modules, and in the case of the in-roof system in specially milled cable ducts.

The inverters are matched to the power of the plant and the intended use of the energy generated.

Wechselrichter    The performance of the plant, use of power optimizer
    or battery storage determine which inverter would be choosen.  


    In order to optimize the performance of a system
    power optimizers, so-called MPP trackers, can be used.

                                                                                                                                                    MPP Tracker


    By means of monitoring, the performance of the plant can be monitored at any time.
    The performance of each individual module is visible.
    Faulty or damaged modules are detected immediately.


Charging stations for e-cars

Charging stations from any manufacturer can be mounted in or on the solar carport.  
The energy produced on the roof is fed directly into the car's battery via inverter and charging station. 

Most solar carport systems are coupled with the power grid. If the solar roof does not supply enough energy to charge all the cars 
electricity is drawn from the grid. If the solar roof produces more power than needed, the surplus is fed into the grid. 
Intelligent charging stations can also be programmed so that only electricity from the solar system flows into the cars. 
This way you charge your car 100% with solar power.

"Intelligent controls (smart charging) ensure that car batteries are preferably charged when in-house solar power is available."



Carport model FLASH can be installed without concrete foundations by means of screw foundation. 
With this foundation technique, the large moment loads from the wide cantilevered roof can be 
transferred into the ground without major excavation work.




    Advantages of screw foundations over concrete foundation

    -fast assembly

    -cheaper than conventional concrete foundations

    -no earth movements

    -existing pavements are only partially opened up

    -foundation can be loaded immediately

    -can be dismantled without problems



Assembly / Kit

Swiss MAP©Assembly in Switzerland
In Switzerland, the solar carports are assembled by an assembly team from swisscarport. 

We assemble:


On-site services include civil engineering work and the AC section (AC side). 
The AC section also includes the charging stations.  

The assembly costs vary depending on the location of the construction site. 
Travel surcharges and hotel expenses as well as delivery of material will be 
separate position in the offer.

The starting point is our production workshop in 4536 Attiswil (CH).


Europa swisscarport.chAssembly near abroad
Due to the many inquiries from abroad we have decided 
to sell our product also across the border.
However, it is not possible for us to perform assembly work abroad.

What we can offer abroad is:
Sale and delivery of carport kit, with or without PV system.

During the development of the FLASH model, one of the most important 
efficient assembly was one of the most important criteria.

A professional installation team can efficiently assemble the supporting structure of the 
carport, even without prior knowledge and with the necessary equipment.

Detailed assembly instructions and an assembly video will be
supplied in the kit, if desired.

Assembly process abroad

Foundations:                                     Screw foundations can be screwed in by a partner company of Krinner GmbH.
                                                            Swisscarport supplies the corresponding foundation plans. 

Support structure:                            The support structure is delivered to the construction site by Swisscarport ready for assembly. 

                                                            A local assembly team assembles the supporting structure based on the assembly plans and the
                                                            assembly instructions from Swisscarport.
                                                            The assembly team needs experience and the necessary equipment. Best suited are
                                                            Assemblers from the timber construction industry.

PV system:                                        The PV system is installed by a local solar installer. 
                                                            The modules, substructure, inverter and electrical material can be obtained as a prefabricated 
                                                            kit from Swisscarport or offered by the local solar installer.
