This building integrated (BIPV) Plug-In Solar kit has been specifically put together to help developers meet the Part L Building Regulations (which is aligned with the Code for Sustainable Homes) when building new houses. This kit contains all you need to complete your solar installation and meet the SAP (Standard Assessment Procedure) calculations for your new build/office/conversion or extension. All components comply fully with the G83/2 requirements and have MCS certifications. The GSE In-Roof Integration Kit can also be used for retrofits.
The GSE integration kit is a simple, quick, lightweight, waterproof method of installing solar panels in-roof. It is much more inexpensive than doing on-roof installation of solar panels for new builds.
The GSE In-Roof Integration Kit has the following advantages:
- Photovoltaic modules (Solar Panels) can be installed in all roof types.
- It’s the simplest and quickest in-roof system available (as fast as installing an on-roof system)
- It fits 95% of the PV Modules (Solar Panels) on the market
- Solar Panels can be installed on 15° to 50° pitch
- Compatible with virtually all photovoltaic panels on the market
- Portrait or landscape solar panel installation
- Meets the CEIAB 2012 standard, MCS012 Certification, and T4-Broof standards
Integration and watertightness come from installing the steel trough with a fixing system on high point. GSE Integration allows Photovoltaic 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 be fitted to wooden or metal structures from 15° to 50° pitch.
Depending on panel size and thickness, virtually all photovoltaic panels on the market can be installed using the GSE INTEGRATION kit.
