Note: SunMizer Solar Roofing is one of the only residential solar products that has been tested to the UL 790 Standard for flammability as a SYSTEM (roofing and solar modules together) and has received a the highest Class A rating for fire resistance. The test results below are relevant to traditional standoff mounted solar modules over composite roofing.
The Solar America Board for Codes and Standards (Solar ABCs) has published two reports that address flammability testing of standard roofing products in the presence of stand-off mounted photovoltaic (PV) modules.
These reports were developed in partnership with Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL) to investigate whether and how the presence of stand-off mounted PV arrays may affect the fire class rating of common roof covering materials.
After reviewing the test results, a fundamental conclusion is that the Fire Rating of a PV module is not a good indicator of the fire class rating of the PV module and roof as a system.
Review the test results at the Solar ABCs website:
Installation of SM-SRS systems requires a Depth Sensitive Driver and nutsetter bit for the 5/16 Hex Head Weatherseal Screws used in the roofing system. These tools are specified in the PDF file linked below.
