|Publication Date:||1 February 2019|
|ICS Code (Solar energy engineering):||27.160|
This document provides guidance on the principles and requirements of structural design for the safety and serviceability of the structural connection between solar energy panels (thermal or photovoltaic) and the structure of flat or pitched roofs.
This document does not include requirements for:
- weather tightness of the roof, solar panels and connections;
- electrical, thermal or mechanical characteristics of the solar panels;
- precautions against fire of the installation.
