Title (EN) PHOTOVOLTAIC ARRAY WITH MINIMALLY PENETRATING ROOFTOP SUPPORT SYSTEM
(FR) RÉSEAU PHOTOVOLTAÏQUE À SYSTÈME DE SUPPORT DE TOIT À PÉNÉTRATION MINIMALE
Abstract:
(EN) A photovoltaic array including a plurality of photovoltaic assemblies and a plurality of mounting units. The mounting units each include an elongate rail and a plurality of leg assemblies. The rail is sized and configured to maintain a portion of at least two of the photovoltaic assemblies, with the leg assemblies extending from the rail in a spaced-apart fashion and terminating in a foot for placement against a rooftop structure for minimally penetration installation. Further, at least one of the leg assemblies can include a retractable leg. When the photovoltaic array is installed to a rooftop structure including a membrane intermittently secured to a rooftop deck, the retractable leg accommodates upward billowing of the membrane under windy conditions.
(FR) L'invention concerne un réseau photovoltaïque comprenant une pluralité d'ensembles photovoltaïques et une pluralité d'unités de montage. Les unités de montage comprennent chacune un rail allongé et une pluralité d'ensembles montants. Le rail est dimensionné et configuré pour maintenir une partie d'au moins deux des ensembles photovoltaïques, avec les ensembles montants s'étendant depuis le rail de façon espacée et se terminant en un pied destiné au placement contre une structure de toit pour installation de pénétration minimale. En outre, au moins l'un des ensembles montants est installé sur une structure de toit comprenant une membrane fixée de façon intermittente à une surface du toit, le montant rétractable s'adapte au gonflement ascendant de la membrane dans des conditions venteuses.
