Commercial Ballasted System at Blue Ridge Graphics
The very fine folks at Blue Ridge Graphics in Charlottesville, print your tee shirts using power from the Sun! When a roof is flat, we typically use a ballasted system which is held down to the roof by ballast, or weight. This typically adds only 5 to 7 pounds per square foot to the roof load something most commercial roofs can handle. Right next door, at Brown’s Cleaners, we installed a large thermal system which heats the water used in the laundromat. Who knew, that Brown’s Cleaners heats water with the help of the Sun! Make a point to look at their roof when you drive by. Both systems are sound business investments.
