MCS 012 Pitched Roof Mounting Kit Certification
From 2nd May 2016 it has been mandatory for pitched rood installation kits certified to MCS 012 to be used for MCS PV installations on pitched roofs.
Solar PV panels installed correctly above non-flammable roof coverings should not affect the fire performance of the roof. However, in-roof installations may affect the roof’s overall fire performance so that it is not compliant with regulations. The main change in issue 2.1 relates to fire rating for the external spread of flame for in-roof installations.
If you produce pitched roof installation kits but haven't yet got MCS 012 certification, or have allowed your certification to lapse, please get in touch to see how we can help.
