Tests of aerodynamic system glued to a surface of a flat roof
The glued AERO system is an ideal solution for installation of photovoltaic modules on membrane roofs of significantly limited load bearing capacity.
Before the new solution, an aerodynamic system glued/heat sealed to the flat roof surface, is introduced into the range, the company Energy5 conducted a number of tests for that structure in a wind tunnel. The system operating in the suction mode achieves a maximum speed of up to 40 m/s – the wind load of the structure was used to specify a configuration of gluing/heat sealing with the best technical parameters.
The analysis of the conducted tests showed that factors of a great significance for selection of an appropriate fixing include a complete set of documentation provided by the investor and identification of a specific membrane type used for roof decking.15.01.2021
