Scope

• Solar energy systems (thermal and PV) integrated in pitched roofs

Standards

• NVN 7250 – Solar energy systems - Integration in roofs and facades - Building aspects
• MCS 012 - Product Certification Scheme Requirements: Pitched Roof Installation Kits
• EN 14437 - Determination of the uplift resistance of installed clay or concrete tiles for roofing - Roof system test method

Principle

On the installed solar energy system a force is applied. This force simulates wind uplift. By increasing the force in a specified manner, the test specimen will eventually fail. The load cycle of failure determines the resistance to wind load and with that the applicability of the build-up in different wind areas.
