Above Roof Mounting

 

Usually, a PV system is installed above an existing roof.  This is normally done by mounting PV modules to an aluminium or galvanised steel framework lying a few centimetres above the roof.  Fixing to the roof structure is then made using special 'roof hooks' or mounting slates which give a secure fastening to the roof structure.

 

Above Roof Mounting System

 

This system consists of a stable aluminium framework mounted onto a number of brackets (or roof hooks) fixed directly to the roof structure.

Vertical profile rails are fastened to these brackets and then carefully spaced horizontal sectioned profiles fastened to these with mounting screws. 

The spacing is such that modules can then simply be lowered and located between the horizontal profiles. Assembly is fast and does not require any tools because modules simply slot into place. They are kept in place using only friction and gravity - no additional bolts or fixings are required. An anti-theft device is available as an optional extra.
