GSE Integration BroofT4 Fire Testing
MCS 012 requires pitched roof kits that replace the roof covering to be tested and for manufacturers to declare their fire performance rating.
It is important to note that MCS 012 is a test and declare standard. There is no pass or fail level, so just because a product is in possession of an MCS 012 certificate is not to say that a product can be used anywhere. It is up to the installer to assess whether the declared fire performance is adequate for the installation.
GSE have completed BroofT4 testing for a large number of solar panels.
For full details please check the MCS certificate.
An alternative means for an installer to achieve a fire rating is to use a substrate with an independent fire rating (for example a barrier material with AA rating) beneath a roofing kit/module combination that does not have a declared fire rating. It is important to be able to verify that the system achieves a sufficient rating as a whole.
Please ensure the module has been approved by the module manufacturer for this method of installation.

A range of ground mounting structures designed for ease of construction, all weather conditions and long life.
Brackets for mounting solar panels to a vehicle roof, or on a boat deck.
The ABS solar panel mounting brackets can be used with any aluminium framed solar panel to provide a secure fixing for vehicles, caravans or boats without drilling any holes through the roof. The mounts will support the solar panel at the optimum height above the surface to enable ventilation from underneath, ensuring the solar panel functions as efficiently as possible. Brackets are screwed or bolted to the solar module using suitable stainless steel self-tapping screws and then bonded to the roof surface using Sikaflex 521 UV adhesive. (Screws, bolts & adhesive not included)
The metal stand-off brackets are suitable for mounting most solar panels with rear fixing holes.
Small Solar Panel Mounts
Solar panels may be mounted on a pole, a ground support, a wall of a building, a building or vehicle roof, or on a boat deck. The main considerations are day long access to unobstructed sunlight and wire lengths to batteries. Appearance and ease of access for any cleaning etc. should also be considered.
Mounting System Accessories
PV mounting systems should not adversely affect the weather tightness of the structure to which they are fitted. They should be designed and installed to ensure this is maintained for the life of the system.
