Importance of structural roof zoning for loads

An Exclusion Zone exists due to high localised wind pressures at roof ridges and edges. Solar panels should not be installed in the exclusion zone where possible. Structural assessment is deemed necessary to check the strength of the existing members supporting the roof in the exclusion zone.

Structural assessment for the placement of PV panels ensures long term stability of the roof under the new installed loads.Our team of chartered engineers are working with solar retailers everyday to support them with quick and feasible assessments.
