Solar roof questions

Our durable, elegant and award-winning Infinity and Integrated solar roofs have been in service since 1997

Q. How thick is the Roof Integrated System?

The system has a total thickness of 80mm above the battens, which is about the same as clay tiles, but will stand slightly above slates.

Q. Is there a minimum or maximum roof angle for the RIS?

The roof needs to have at least a 10 degree pitch to ensure the drainage system is sufficient in removing any condensation from behind the panels.  If less than this, then you will need a single ply, steel sheet or similarly waterproof roof surface for us to fix over.  

The maximum roof pitch for standard installations is 45 degrees.  Steeper pitches require additional considerations depending on the size and location of the roof, so please contact us to discuss your project in further detail.

Q. Is the Roof Integrated System an accredited product with the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS)?

Yes, contact us to discuss why this may be important for your project.


Q. How heavy is the system?

20kg per square metre, so much lighter than most clay tiles & slates
