The problem of sealing cables and pipes which pass through the roof has been solved with the introduction of Klober’s Solar-Line range of accessories. The range, which includes Solar PV and Solar Thermal cable outlets, ensures that penetrations remain fully watertight while removing risk of damage through abrasion or distortion.
A Solar Outlet Kit contains an Outlet, Collar, Universal Base Tile and a Sealing Collar which can be used for up to 8 cables of 4-8mm. In addition to PV systems it can be used to channel cables from sensors, aerials, security lights and cameras. A tapered nozzle enables the Outlet, which is available in tile and slate versions, to be cut to size. Other products in the range include a Universal Solar Panel Flashing Apron and a Panel Support which absorbs forces of up to 2500 N/m2. The support bracket places no point loading or pressure on tiles and has also been designed to prevent water vapour from entering the roof. All products have been wind-tunnel tested on pitches from 20°-50° and are available in a choice of tile colours.
