The Ubbink Solar In-Roof system is designed for mounting and integrating all sizes and types of photovoltaic (PV) modules with tiled or slate roofs. The system ensures an attractive low profile installation that blends into the roof without detracting from the character or architectural integrity of the building. Installations are fully watertight thanks to the unique in-roof flashing system and Ubbink’s many years experience in roofing component design. The system is suitable for all pitched roofs from 15° to 70°. On new roofs, the Ubbink Solar In-Roof system reduces cost as tiles or slates are...

Installation guide Calculate the photovoltaic field (height x width) + 20mm spacing between modules. Remove an additional column of tiles on both the right and left hand side (2 rows for slates). Landscape format Remove the tiles / slates that cover the area calculated above. Portrait format Do not remove any additional tiles below the photovoltaic field (for slate leave the first row of hooks). Check the quality of the battens. If you are in even the slightest doubt about their condition, always replace them. As preferred best practice we always advise placing new battens alongside the old ones. Width...

Use 400mm wide Ubiflex (for very high profile tiles 500mm may be required). This is available in black, grey or terracotta. 240mm above the batten holding the row of tiles below the array add an additional batten over the width of the field. The size of the additional batten should be the equivalent of the original batten specification. A further additional batten is advisable immediately below the other additional batten if the pitch is below 20°. With a 50mm overhang above, roll out and screw the top of the Ubiflex to the newly installed batten at 450mm centres. Fold back the 50mm overhang of...

3 Position the in-roof roll Position the in-roof roll at the bottom left of the field. Position so the lugs at the top edge rest on a convenient batten so that the lower part of the roll overlaps the Ubiflex by at least 150mm or 200mm if the pitch is less than 20°. Unroll the in-roof roll across the photovoltaic field being careful not to stretch and distort the roll profiles otherwise the following roll will not fit. If the in-roof roll is too long, cut to the desired length and keep the off cut for the next row. If the in-roof roll is too short, unroll it until the end and then use a second...

Fix the entire row of anchors at their first position at the bottom of the photovoltaic field. Portrait format ■ Position the first anchor 200mm away from the left hand side, module will fall between the photovoltaic field. These are fixed to the batten using three of the provided anchor screws per ■ Position the subsequent anchor rows as follows: No more than a maximum of 900mm wide over approximately half the length of between the heights of the rows. Landscape format ■ Position the first anchor 200mm above the bottom of photovoltaic module away from the left hand side. These are fixed to the batten...

5 Position the angle brackets Screw the angle brackets to the anchors (do not tighten). Hammerhead bolt Place the hammerhead bolt and nut onto the angle bracket Angle bracket 6 Install the side flashings Place the side flashing so that it covers the last crest of the merge roll. This flashing serves to make watertight the position between the merge roll and the tiles or slates. Very little of the flashing should be visible once the installation is complete. Side flashing Fixed on first batten then every other batten. Last crest of the in-roof roll The exact final position of the flashing is adjustable...

Slate roofs require that the Ubiflex flashing is positioned at the top of the system. Position the 400mm wide Ubiflex approximately 200mm above the in-roof roll, with 20mm extending past the top batten. Unroll across the whole width of the PV field, screwing to the batten at the top edge of the roll. Fold the top edge back by 20mm. Bend both left and right hand sides back 20mm in the same manner along two thirds of the height. Bend the top left and right extremities in the same manner. Dress the bottom 200mm carefully over the in-roof roll. The above images are representative and may change accordingly. Ubbink...
