We offer a variety of solutions

For your specific PV project

Solar Panels on Metal Roof

The differences in roof shapes and slopes make it challenging to install a solar panel system. Given the extensive range and flexible modular structure of Mibet mounting systems, we are able to install solar panels on almost any roof slope. Better still, our PV mounting systems are compatible with all PV panels available on the market.

All our solar mounting solutions for pitched roofs are extremely durable, easy to install, and they come with an impressive load capacity. Our team can even provide structural certificates for different roof systems.

Main Types of Metal Roofs for Solar Mounting

Standing seam metal roofing (also referred to as concealed fastener metal roofing) features various types of raised seams that run across the roof deck and hidden fasteners. This is the most durable type of metal roofing available. No fasteners are visible on the surface, which means minimal leakage from the roof, and fasteners will be corrosion-free due to no exposure to weather conditions. Non-penetrating joint clamps are used to protect and maintain the roof. If installed properly, a standing seam metal roof is considered to be able to last over 60 years. This roofing option is ideal for commercial buildings and residential projects, such as sheds or other structures.

Standing seam metal roofing

An exposed fastener system is usually regarded as the economical choice of metal roofing, and it is easier to install compared to a standing seam system. On an exposed fastener metal roof, rows of visible fasteners run across the roof deck, which is an obvious difference from a standing seam system. However, this type of metal roofing has the same lifespan. As the fasteners are exposed to weather conditions, mounts will be needed for maintaining the roof and protecting it from leakage and corrosion. An exposed fastener system is typically used on agricultural, commercial, and industrial buildings.

Critical Components of a Solar Mounting System on a Metal Roof

Solar panel mounts on metal roofs consist of two essential parts: clamps and rails, which are connected with solar panels. You’ll need to decide between rail-based and rail-less installation, depending on your specific situation.

Metal roof (track and non-track connections)

Critical components of solar mounting systems on metal roofs include:

● Mounts for exposed fastened metal roofing
● Clamps for standing seam metal roofing
● Mini clamps
● Vertical clamps
● Stainless steel bolts
● Metal fasteners

Since each roofing and solar structure requirement varies, creating a customized mounting solution for metal roofing is the best way to ensure a perfect fit.

Find the Best Solar Mounting System for Your Metal Roof

There are a wide variety of ways to install solar systems on metal roofs, the details of which can affect the installation cost and life expectancy. The solar panel mounts on metal roofs consist of two basic parts: mounting clamps for roofs and solar panel attachments. You can choose either rail-based or rail-less installation, depending on various factors and personal preference. Mibet offers perfect solutions for both installation methods.

Metal Roof Solar Panel Standing Seam Clamp

Metal Roof Solar Panel Standing Seam Clamp

Solar roof clamps allow solar panels to be attached directly to standing seam metal roofs without drilling. The clamps provide a firm hold without penetrating the roof panels, ensuring excellent stability with minimal weight. In addition, the versatility of the system portfolio allows for quick connection to rails or modules.

With a standing-seam metal roof, one can install an entire solar panel system without any penetrations, greatly reducing costs in mounts and labor. A solar panel roof can have tens of thousands of attachment points. A non-penetrating attachment system utilizing a standing-seam clamp will simply and effectively attach the solar modules without voiding the metal roof warranty or causing any leakage.
