Photovoltaic Shelters Structure Calculator: Design & Analysis

Our innovative SAAS solution for designing your photovoltaic shelters in 5 minutes.

Welcome to the PV-Shelters universe, your exclusive SAAS tool designed by Eurocodes Tools to simplify the financial assessment and execution of your photovoltaic shelters.

Our calculator provides a comprehensive approach with two key features: pre-study in the pre-project phase and execution study, all accessible from a single user-friendly interface.

Key Features

1- Architectural flexibility

Choose from four different architectures to customize your photovoltaic shelters according to your specific needs. From centered to off-centered and even inclined columns, find the solution that aligns with your vision and your client's requirements.

2 - User-friendly interface

Based on your photovoltaic project information, specify the inclination, length, and width dimensions of your roof. Refine details such as lateral overhang and the distance between rafters while visualizing the carport construction in real-time. Select the construction location on a map, launch the analysis with a single click and immediately view the results. Our PV-Shelters software will automatically provide you with a selection of structural elements suitable for your project, or you can also perform manual tests according to your preferences.
