PV Bracing - How it Works
External loads, which are usually applied at the top of the structural legs, translate as a ‘moment’ at the base. The moments can often be quite large due to the length of the frames.
The PV Solar Bracing Kit is designed to reduce the moments in steel frames – reducing the deflection and stress placed on the steel by transferring the force applied at the top of the structural legs into a reduced moment at the bottom. This allows engineers to decrease structural steel sections and foundations, delivering significant material savings whilst improving durability.
