Overhead glazing

In many installations, our modules are fitted in the form of so-called overhead glazing. The rules for vertical and overhead glazing are summarized in general terms in the Technical Rules for Using Linear Glazing –TRLV (Technischen Richtlinien für die Verwendung von linien­förmig gelagerten Verglasungen).
Overhead glazing is defined as having a slant of >10° while vertical glazing has a slant of ≤ 10° to the perpendicular. These rules apply to glazing with continuous linear supports on two opposite sides. They also describe the necessary glass inset in the support profiles. Due consideration is given to snow loads, wind pressure and wind suction together with other load elements playing a decisive role in dimensioning the glass. Other aspects to consider are whether to use double or triple insulation glass filled with air or inert gas. It is also necessary to take the respective location of the building into account, as well as the installation situation with installation angle and height.

Important: These requirements are NOT fulfilled by classic standard modules, whether framed or not! solarnova designs and produces double glazing modules for exactly this type of application, taking due consideration to fulfilling customer demands as well as technical regulations.
