Each individual local wind, snow and seismic load.
Additional heavy duty loads of the catwalks on the roof.
Temperature probe loads.
The roof is a self-supporting structure.
Roof panels are assembled with galvanized steel bolts and plastic seal washers. Stainless steel bolts can be delivered upon request.
