As new requirements for rooftop fittings have been introduced Genius Roof Solutions showcased its microgeneration certification scheme (MCS012) compliant hooded flashing fitting.

David White, operations director for Genius Roof Solutions explained further to Solar Power Portal at Solar Energy UK 2013, that a hooded fitting eliminates slate and (Rosemary) plain tile roofing problems for PV installers.

Genius Roof Solutions’ SolarFlash fitting is compliant with the new MCS012 regulation as it does not require drilling or notching, SolarFlash also stops leaking and uses no lead, saving tiles and “allowing installers to be roofers”, says White.

Although the fitting can be “used on any non-metallic roof, residential or commercial, the bracket is designed for slate, addressing roofing problems for UK installers”, White said.
