Manual for Structural Assessment for Installation in Domestic Dwellings (2003)

This document, prepared by the New Zealand Solar Industry Association (SIA), is an example of a guide explaining how to evaluate domestic timber framed dwellings for the installation of solar collectors and store tanks placed on the roof. The manual was intended to supplement the standard NZS3604 and identify when specific engineering design is required.

The document goes through the various details to take into account while performing an assessment of an installation, such as the rafter spans, the design of the solar store tank, the tank capacity depending on the roof height, among others.
