In the future, more roof areas are to be used for photovoltaic systems (PV system) to generate green electricity. The large roof areas of commercial and industrial buildings in particular represent a high potential for expansion.
If fire protection issues are not taken into account in the planning and construction of a PV system, this can lead to fires and impair the effectiveness of fire compartments and technical fire protection equipment. Especially in the case of combustible roofing, the spread of fire via the roof can also be significantly promoted.
For this reason, our company has developed a technical fire protection information sheet for PV systems
- on hall roofs with areas larger than 1,800 m2
- or for objects with automatic extinguishing systems
- or with oxygen reduction systems
