SOLAR SOLUTIONS FOR ALL ROOF TYPES

Over the last 10 years we have installed solar panels onto a wide variety of roof types.  Each installation represents a different challenge however our expert designers can find a solar PV system to suit any situation:

Flexible solutions for every project

Trapezoidal Steel

The most cost effective type of solar PV system is one that’s installed to the trapezoidal Steel roof commonly found on warehousing. The roof anchors are fixed to the crown of the roof sheet and the solar panel is secured directly to this.

DESIGNED FOR MAXIMUM EFFICIENCY

High Rise buildings

At heights over 20 floors a mechanically fixed system is required due to the wind loadings. For these applications iGen design a solar pv system that will fix to a traditional cold roof, and also to a warm inverted roof construction using specialist anchors with legs extending beyond the insulation.

Standing Seam

Approved by all of the mainstream roofing manufacturers, and increasingly popular because of its aesthetically pleasing appearance. For this system iGen use a specialist clamp to attach to the top of the seam, eliminating any need for penetration of the roof skin.

UTILISE SPACE AND MAXIMISE SAVINGS

Single Ply Membrane

iGen offer a choice of fixing options for this type of roof. For mechanical attachment – particularly suitable for systems on buildings over 20 storeys- we use a specialist fixing. This is screwed/bolted to the roof deck and contains a layer of single ply membrane, which is then welded to the roof to maintain integrity against moisture ingress.

iGen can also design a system secured by means of concrete ballast, thus requiring no penetrations to the roof. The amount of ballast is calculated using the latest BS and EN standards.

Tile/Slate

Planning policies on housing are driving the rise in popularity of Solar PV systems as developers strive for greener homes and improved BREEAM ratings.

iGen can design integrated systems that sit flush to the roof rather than on top of the tiles or slates. This gives a sleek low profile, and means there is no need to remove the system for future maintenance or repairs to the underlying roof.
