Pitched Roof Mounting Solutions
IN-ROOF MOUNTING SYSTEMS FOR SOLAR PV PANELS REPRESENT AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH TO SOLAR INSTALLATION, SEAMLESSLY INTEGRATING PHOTOVOLTAIC PANELS INTO THE ROOFING STRUCTURE ITSELF.
These systems not only generate clean energy but also enhance the aesthetic appeal of buildings by eliminating the traditional panel-on-rack appearance. By replacing conventional roofing materials with solar panels, they offer a streamlined and architecturally pleasing solution. This approach not only maximises energy production by optimising panel orientation but also reduces installation time and costs. However, careful consideration of roofing materials, waterproofing, and compatibility with the existing roof structure is essential to ensure long-term durability and weather resilience. In-roof mounting systems represent a harmonious fusion of solar technology and architectural design, contributing to sustainable energy solutions while maintaining a visually appealing roof profile.
ABOVE-ROOF MOUNTING SYSTEMS FOR SOLAR PV PANELS ARE A POPULAR CHOICE FOR SOLAR INSTALLATIONS, WHERE PANELS ARE MOUNTED ONTO EXISTING ROOFTOPS RATHER THAN INTEGRATED WITHIN THEM.
These systems offer versatility, making them suitable for a wide range of roof types and structures. By affixing the panels on rails or mounts above the roof's surface, they allow for easy access and maintenance. This flexibility in design and placement maximises solar exposure and energy production. Proper engineering and waterproofing are crucial to safeguard the roof's integrity and ensure long-term performance. Above-roof mounting systems provide an effective means of harnessing solar energy while maintaining the adaptability needed for various architectural and roofing scenarios.
METAL ROOF FIXING METHODS ARE ARGUABLY THE SIMPLEST, FASTEST, AND MOST COST-EFFECTIVE SOLUTION FOR RETROFIT SOLAR PV.
For trapezoidal sheet roofs, the mounting bracket is fixed directly through the roof sheet, with the panels then laid precisely on top.
