Solar & Slate Integrate
3 November, 2011
As the demand from clients for fully integrated PV systems grows, so does the demand for operatives to be trained in fitting the panels to the roof. Alan Lander of RoofTrain was approached by Avonline, Bristol to develop a course to teach a number of their PV fitters how to fix Solar Century’s C21e panels, for both slate and tile roofs. Alan said;
these systems are ideally suited to new builds & reroof situations especially as the costs are not as prohibitive as they once were. Roofers & estimators should certainly bear this product in mind when advising clients and potential customers
Dave Roddick of Avonline attended the course with a number of his fitters, just prior to starting a contract to install the C21e slate units onto a new build house. Dave Roddick commented;
this training has enabled us to approach our first C21e install with confidence
This dedicated PV integrated one day course includes fitting the panels to both natural slate and tiled roofs.
