Solar PV roof integration system

The GSE roof integrated PV frame for solar photovoltaic panels is simple, lightweight, watertight and inexpensive.

  • Photovoltaic modules can be installed in all roof types

  • Modules can be installed on 12°to 50° pitch

  • Compatible with virtually all PV panels on the market

  • Portrait or landscape format installation

  • Meets the CEIAB 2012 standard,MCS012 Certification, and T4-Broof standards

  • Certified by the CSTB , Alps Controls , SMABTP and BBA

  • Certified fire classification B-Roof T1, T3 and T4

  • Permits the use of a wide range ofPV modules so Eco2Solar can select the most appropriate panel for your installation. Eco2Solar generally use high quality Tier 1 solar modules such as Trina.

Integration and water tightness come from installing the steel trough with a fixing system on high point. GSE Integration allows PV modules to be fitted to any roof cover(Roman, interlocking or flat tiles, slate or steel troughs) on new and renovated buildings.

The kit can be installed in portrait or landscape format on both small installations (less than 3 kWp) and large ones (several hundred kWp). The GSE Integration system can befitted to wooden or metal structures from 12° to 50° pitch.

Depending on panel size and thickness, virtually all photovoltaic panels on the market can be installed using the GSE INTEGRATION kit.

This system is designed to be completely safe:

Fireproof

Our system is BBA approved to the same standards as the roof tiles that it is replacing: BRoof T4 fire rating (EN 13501-5: 2005 + A1: 2009)

Wind Loading

4 Double clamps are required in areas of extreme dynamic pressure(Pa) of 5,000. By using 4 GSE clamps the system is compliant up toWind Zones IV (see map below). This is safe for all of mainland UK including Scotland.

However, as a matter of course,Eco2Solar install 6 GSE double clamps per panel which would protect the system to tropical storm conditions.

This will be sufficient for the heavy wind loads in Scotland including the islands off the north and west coasts of Scotland – Wind Zone V below.

Waterproof

The system has been tested under severe rain/wind conditions (rainfall 130mm/h with a wind speed of 14 m/s)
