Calculate wind loads for pitched roof solar panels  

Pitched Roof Wind Uplift Assessment

MCS requires solar installers to undertake site-specific calculations to ensure that the proposed solar system is sufficient to withstand the imposed loads.

This spreadsheet makes it easy for solar installers to demonstrate that they have met the requirements of the standard. Enter features of the installation into the worksheet and the calculator does the rest, providing a simple confirmation that Clearline solar panels have adequate wind resistance for the site.

A useful website for assessing site altitude can be found here.

Flat Roof Wind Uplift Assessment

MCS requires solar installers to undertake site-specific calculations to ensure that the proposed solar system is sufficient to withstand the imposed loads.

This spreadsheet makes it easy for solar installers to demonstrate that they have met the requirements of the standard and install with confidence that ballast weight or fixings are adequate to resist wind loads. Enter features of the installation into the worksheet and the calculator does the rest, providing you with the hold down weight required (for ballasted systems) or the loads on fixings (for mechanically fixed systems).
