STRUCTURE FOR MOUNTING A SOLAR ENERGY RECOVERING PANEL ON A SUPPORT, SYSTEM COMPRISING SUCH A STRUCTURE, INSTALLATION COMPRISING SUCH A SYSTEM, METHOD FOR MOUNTING A SYSTEM FOR RECOVERING SOLAR ENERGY ON A SUPPORT
The invention relates to a mounting structure of a solar energy recovery panel on a support, to a system comprising such a structure, to an installation comprising such a system, and to a method of mounting a system. solar energy recovery on a support. In particular, the invention relates to a mounting structure adapted to allow the mounting of at least two solar energy recovery panels on a support, said recovery panels being arranged adjacently in a longitudinal direction and presenting each a longitudinal edge in the longitudinal direction, and a transverse edge in a transverse direction perpendicular to the longitudinal direction, said mounting structure comprising: - at least one mounting profile which extends in the longitudinal direction and which comprises: a base for to be fixed on the support, a holding portion adapted to maintain at least one of the longitudinal edges of the recovery panels, said holding portion being placed at a distance from the base in a vertical direction perpendicular to the longitudinal and transverse directions, at least a drainage pipe arranged under the holding part; at least one sealing structure extending in the transverse direction, said sealing structure being adapted to seal between the transverse edges of the recovery panels. Without being limited to it, the invention applies in particular to the integration of photovoltaic modules with a framework constituting the support of a roof of a building. Photovoltaic modules producing electrical energy from sunlight are attached to the frame, possibly replacing a portion of the roof. Such integration at the building roofing installation stage improves the watertightness and aesthetics of the roof, in particular by limiting the risks of deterioration of the roofing that exist when the photovoltaic modules are mounted after the cover has been removed. been installed. In addition, such an integration offers economic advantages insofar as the purchase price of the electrical energy generated by the photovoltaic modules is a function of the level of integration of the photovoltaic modules in the coverage.
In addition to a frame, the support of such photovoltaic modules may be a facade or another exterior building wall, or any other support adapted to receive such modules. A fully satisfactory mounting structure is known from EP-A-2 023 402. The object of the invention, however, is to improve the known mounting structure. For this purpose, the invention proposes a mounting structure of the aforementioned type in which the sealing structure comprises: - a base, 10 - a securing part adapted to sealingly fasten the sealing structure to each of the transverse edges recovery panels, said securing part being placed at a distance from the base in the vertical direction, - at least one drainage pipe arranged under the securing part, said sealing structure being arranged so that the drainage pipe of 15 said sealing structure is in fluid communication with the drain line of the mounting profile. Thus, according to the invention, the sealing structure that extends transversely can recover the water from the infiltration between the recovery panels, through the securing part, and the water from the condensation under one of 20 recovery panels. The recovered water can then be discharged through the drain line of the mounting profile. In particular, the holding part of the mounting profile may comprise at least one bearing surface on which the longitudinal edge of one of the recovery panels is intended to rest, the drainage pipe of the mounting profile having an opening upper, said upper opening being delimited internally by the bearing surface and externally by a rim arranged at a vertical distance from the base below that of the bearing surface, the securing part of the sealing structure having at least one bearing surface on which the transverse edge of one of the recovery panels is intended to rest, said bearing surface being arranged at a vertical distance from the base substantially equal to the vertical distance between the rim and the surface of the support of the mounting profile, the base of the sealing structure resting on the rim. The sealing structure can thus be simply retained by the recovery panels, without having to be fixed to the support or the mounting profile. In addition to simplifying the mounting of the mounting structure, these arrangements simplify the management of the expansion of the mounting structure, in particular by limiting the stresses on the components of the mounting structure during their expansion.
Furthermore, the holding portion of the mounting profile may comprise two bearing surfaces spaced apart from one another in the transverse direction and on which the longitudinal edges of the recovery panels are intended to rest, the mounting profile comprising two lateral drainage ducts respectively arranged under the bearing surfaces, said lateral drainage ducts each having an upper opening delimited internally by one of the bearing surfaces. It can then be provided that two sealing structures extend in the transverse direction on either side of the mounting profile, the drain lines of the sealing structures being in fluid communication respectively with the lateral drainage ducts of the mounting profile. The securing part of the sealing structure may comprise two bearing surfaces on which the transverse edges of the recovery panels are intended to rest, said bearing surfaces being spaced apart from one another in the longitudinal direction, the drainage pipe being arranged under the bearing surfaces and having an upper opening delimited by the bearing surfaces. In particular in order to be able to recover and evacuate the water condensing under one of the recovery panels, the sealing structure may comprise an external drainage duct arranged under one of the bearing surfaces, on the other side drainage pipe, said outer drainage pipe having an upper opening delimited internally by said bearing surface. In one embodiment, the base of the mounting profile has a width in the transverse direction, the mounting structure further comprising at least one fixing member of the mounting profile on the support, said fixing member being intended to be fixed. on the support and comprising two locking elements spaced from each other in the transverse direction, said locking elements delimiting between them a reception space open in the longitudinal direction and adapted to receive a part of the base, the organ fastener having: a mounting position, wherein the locking elements define a first access opening to the receiving space in the vertical direction, said first access opening having a minimum dimension in the transverse direction which is greater than or equal to the width of the base, so that the locking elements do not interfere with the base, and a e locking position, wherein the locking elements define a second access opening to the receiving space in the vertical direction, said second access opening having a minimum dimension in the transverse direction which is strictly less than the width of the base, so that the blocking elements interfere with the base.
According to a second aspect, the invention proposes a solar energy recovery system comprising: a mounting structure as defined above, at least two solar energy recovery panels arranged adjacently in the longitudinal direction and having each a longitudinal edge and a transverse edge, said longitudinal edges being held in the holding portion of at least one mounting profile, the sealing structure being sealed to each of the transverse edges of the recovery panels, the pipe draining said sealing structure being in fluid communication with the drain line of the mounting profile. In particular, the recovery panels can be photovoltaic modules. According to a third aspect, the invention proposes an installation comprising a support and a solar energy recovery system as defined above, the recovery panels being mounted on the support via the mounting structure. In particular, the support may slope from a vertex, the mounting profile extending in the slope and the sealing structure extending perpendicular to the slope.
When the sealing structure is provided with the external drainage pipe defined above, it can be placed on the side of the top, in order to recover the water condensing on the recovery panel located upstream in the direction of slope. According to a fourth aspect, the invention proposes a method of mounting a solar energy recovery system on a support, comprising the steps of: - providing a support and at least two solar energy recovery panels, said recovery panels each having a longitudinal edge in a longitudinal direction, and a transverse edge in a transverse direction perpendicular to the longitudinal direction; - providing a mounting structure comprising: at least one mounting profile extending in the longitudinal direction and which comprises: a base intended to be fixed on the support, a holding part adapted to hold at least one of the longitudinal edges of the recovery panels, said holding portion being placed at a distance from the base in a vertical direction perpendicular to the directions longitudinal and transverse, at least one drainage pipe arranged under the part for maintaining, at least one sealing structure which extends in the transverse direction, said sealing structure being adapted to seal between the transverse edges of the recovery panels, said sealing structure comprising: a base, a securing part adapted to sealingly fasten the sealing structure to each of the transverse edges of the recovery panels, the said securing part being placed at a distance from the base in the vertical direction, at least one drainage pipe arranged under the securing part - maintaining the longitudinal edge of one of the recovery panels in the holding part of the mounting profile, - positioning the other recovery panel adjacent in the longitudinal direction and holding the longitudinal edge of the panel recovery in the holding portion of the mounting profile, - secure from man sealing the sealing structure at each of the transverse edges of the recovery panels by means of the securing portion, with the drain line of said sealing structure in fluid communication with the drain line of the mounting profile. Other objects and advantages of the invention will appear on reading the following description of particular embodiments given by way of non-limiting example, the description being made with reference to the appended drawings in which: FIG. a partial schematic representation of a solar energy recovery installation comprising a solar energy recovery system with photovoltaic modules mounted on a frame through a mounting structure, transversely extending sealing structures between the photovoltaic modules, - Figure 2 is a partially exploded sectional view in the orientation referenced II-II in Figure 1 of a mounting profile and a fixing member of the mounting structure, - the figures 3a and 3b are representations in plan view of the mounting profile and the fastener illustrating the respective fixing member 4 is a partial sectional representation in the orientation referenced IV-IV in FIG. 1 of the sealing structure, FIGS. 5, 6, 7 , 8, 9 and 10 are representations of steps of a mounting method of the solar energy recovery system on the frame, Figures 7a and 7b constituting enlarged representations respectively according to the orientations referenced VIIa-VIIa and VIlb- VIlb in Figure 6.
In the figures, the same references designate identical or similar elements. FIG. 1 represents a solar energy recovery installation 1 comprising a solar energy recovery system 2 mounted on a support.
In the embodiment shown, the support is a frame 3 supporting a roof of a building. The frame 3 has a vertex S, whose position is schematically indicated by an arrow, from which extends a slope, generally between 10 ° and 80 ° with respect to a horizontal plane, in a longitudinal direction X. The frame 3 comprises support elements, called chevrons, not shown, extending parallel to each other in the longitudinal direction X and support elements, called flattening 4, extending parallel to each other in a transverse direction Y perpendicular to the longitudinal direction X. In other embodiments, the support could be a chassis having a slope or not, comprising longitudinal and transverse support members, and intended to be placed on a frame 3, a roof covering or any other surface . The solar energy recovery system 2 comprises a plurality of solar energy recovery panels, four of which are shown in FIG. 1, arranged adjacently in the longitudinal X and transverse Y directions. The solar energy recovery panels are for example, constituted by photovoltaic modules 5. Each photovoltaic panel 5 comprises an array of photovoltaic cells that generate electrical energy from sunlight, and an electrical circuit connected to the network for transporting the electrical energy generated by the solar cells. photovoltaic cells. In FIG. 1, each of the photovoltaic modules 5 has a rectangular contour with two longitudinal edges 6 extending in the longitudinal direction X and two transverse edges 7 extending in the transverse direction Y. As represented in FIG. solar energy recovery device 2 also comprises a mounting structure 10 through which the photovoltaic modules 5 are mounted on the frame 3. In Figures 1 and 2, the mounting structure 10 comprises three mounting profiles 15 fixed , as will be explained later in the description, on the deck x 4 of the frame 3 so as to extend generally in the longitudinal direction X. In Figure 2, the mounting profile 15, for example extruded aluminum, s extends in an extension direction which, as previously indicated, corresponds, in the embodiment shown, to the longitudinal direction X.
The mounting profile 15 comprises a base 16 in the form of a flat plate having a length L1 in the longitudinal direction X, a width 11 in the transverse direction Y and a thickness e in a vertical direction Z perpendicular to the longitudinal directions X and Y. The length L1 of the mounting profile 15 illustrated substantially corresponds to twice the length of a longitudinal edge 6 of a photovoltaic panel 5. The mounting profile 15 may, however, have any other suitable length L1. The description of the mounting structure 10 made in relation to the longitudinal X, transverse Y and vertical Z directions defined for the frame 3 is easily transposable to any other orientation of the mounting structure 10 defined from the direction of extension of the mounting profile and two directions perpendicular to each other and to the direction of extension. In the illustrated embodiment, the mounting profile 15 has a symmetry with respect to a median longitudinal plane XZ. The terms "inside" and "outside" relative to the mounting profile 15 will then refer to elements placed respectively close to and away from the median longitudinal plane XZ. At a distance from the base 16, in the vertical direction Z, the mounting profile comprises two legs 17 spaced from each other in the transverse direction Y. The feet extend over the entire length of the base 16 and are connected to the base 16 respectively by two vertical walls 18. The feet 17 respectively have upper surfaces 20, opposite the base 16, which are coplanar. A snap groove 19 is formed in each of the upper surfaces 20. Each of the feet 17 protrudes transversely on either side of the corresponding vertical wall 18 so as to have an inner shoulder 21 directed towards the other foot 17, and an outer shoulder 22 directed to the opposite. The upper surfaces 20 of the feet 17 form two bearing surfaces on which the longitudinal edges 6 of two photovoltaic modules 5 can rest by means of seals 23 snapped into the snap-in grooves 19. The bearing surfaces 20 belong to a holding portion 25 of the mounting profile 15 adapted to maintain in position, in a sealed manner, the longitudinal edges 6 of the photovoltaic modules 5. The maintenance can be provided in any appropriate manner and in particular, as shown in Figure 2 , by a flange system comprising an upper flange 27 and nuts 26. The upper flange 27 comprises two abutment surfaces 28 adapted to come respectively facing the bearing surfaces 20 and to be able to press on the longitudinal edges 6 of the modules 5 against the bearing surfaces 20. The abutment surfaces 28 each comprise a snap groove 29 in which a seal 30 is snapped. The nuts 26 are engaged between the vertical walls 18 and adapted to abut against the internal shoulders 21 of the feet 17. Clamping screws 31 mounted in tapped holes provided on the upper flange 27 are engaged in the nuts 26, so that the tightening of the clamping screws 31 brings the upper flange 27 and the nuts 26 closer together in order to pinch the longitudinal edges 6 of the photovoltaic modules 5 between the bearing surfaces 20 and the counter-support surfaces 28. Between the base 16 and the feet 17, for example in a substantially median zone, the mounting profile 15 has an intermediate wall 35 which extends in the transverse direction Y. The intermediate wall 35 has a central portion 36, between the vertical walls 18, and two side portions 37 which extend the intermediate wall 35 beyond the vertical walls 18 to free ends. As illustrated, the intermediate wall 35 may have a width in the transverse direction Y substantially equal to the width of the base 16. At each of its free ends, the intermediate wall 35 is provided with a flange 38 extending in the vertical direction Z and having a transverse return 39, directed towards the corresponding vertical wall 18. Depending on the application, the length of the flange 38 may be adapted so that the transverse return 39 comes or not in contact with the photovoltaic panel 5. In the embodiment shown, the transverse return 39 of the rim 38 is located at a distance from the base 16, measured in the vertical direction Z, less than that of the bearing surfaces 20. A vertical distance, the utility will appear on reading the following description, then exists between the transverse return 39 and the surfaces of 20. Each of the lateral portions 37 may be shaped to have a concavity facing the base 16. In Figure 2, the concavity is in the form of a rounded. The vertical walls 18 define with the base 16 and the central portion 36 a tubular housing 46 extending over the entire length of the mounting profile 15. The vertical walls 18 define, moreover, in an area remote from the base 16, the above the housing 46 above, with the central portion 36 of the intermediate wall 35 a central drainage duct 40. The central drainage duct 40 has an upper opening bounded by edges formed by the bearing surfaces 20 of the feet 17. The central drainage duct 40 is thus arranged under the bearing surfaces 20, with the internal shoulders 21 of the feet 17 overhanging the central drainage duct 40. The central drainage duct 40, in which the nuts 26 are placed, allows in particular to recover infiltration water which could infiltrate upstream of the bearing surfaces 20, between the seals 30 of the upper flange 27 and the longitudinal edges In addition, on either side of the central drainage duct 40, the mounting profile 15 has two lateral drainage ducts 45 whose vertical walls 18 define respective inner walls, the portions side 37 of the intermediate wall 35 define respective bottom walls and the flanges 38 define respective outer walls. Each lateral drainage duct 45 has an upper opening delimited by an inner edge, close to the median longitudinal plane XZ, formed by one of the bearing surfaces 20, and an outer edge, at a distance from the median longitudinal plane XZ formed by one of the transverse returns 39. The lateral drainage ducts 45 are thus also placed under the bearing surfaces 20, on the other side of the vertical walls 18 with respect to the central drainage duct 40, with the outer shoulders 22 respectively overlying the lateral drainage ducts 45. Between each lateral drainage duct 45 and the base 16, the conformation of the bottom wall 37 allows the latching of connection members, not shown, of the recovery panels, for example of electrical conduits in the case of photovoltaic modules. As illustrated in Figures 2, 3a and 3b, the mounting structure 10 also comprises a fixing member, in the form of a shoe 50, through which the mounting profile 15 is mounted on the frame 3. Each mounting profile 15 can be mounted on the frame 3 with one or more pads 50.
The shoe 50 comprises: - a base 51 intended to be fixed on one of the deck 4 of the frame 3, - two side walls 52, parallel to each other and each extending perpendicularly from the base 51. In the embodiment shown, the base 51 has a parallelepipedal contour with two small sides parallel to each other and two long sides parallel to each other. The base 51 comprises, along the two short sides of the contour, two attachment wings 53. Each of the attachment wings 53 is provided with a central fixing orifice 54 with a vertical axis. As will become apparent from the following description, the fixing holes form fasteners of the pad 50 to the support.
The side walls 52 are arranged contiguously to the fastening wings 53, parallel to the short sides. The pad 50 then has an acute angle 0 between each of the short sides and a line perpendicular to one of the long sides. In the illustrated embodiment, the angle θ is between 10 ° and 50 °, preferably between 25 ° and 35 °. Each of the side walls 52 has a vertical portion 55 perpendicular to the base 51, and two flanges 56 parallel to each other extending perpendicularly from the vertical portion 55 to the other side wall 52. On each side wall 52, a first flange 56 is located at a distance, measured perpendicularly to the base 51, from the base 51 substantially corresponding to the thickness e of the base 16, and a second flange 56 is situated at a distance, measured perpendicular to the base 51, from the first flange 56 corresponding substantially to the thickness e of the base 16. The free ends facing the first flanges 56, as well as those of the second flanges 56, are spaced apart by a distance greater than or equal to the width 11 of the base 16. In the figure 2, the distance between the free edges corresponds substantially to the width 11 of the base 16.
The side walls 52 thus define between them a receiving space 60 open opposite the base 51 and parallel to the side walls 52, the receiving space 60 being adapted to receive a portion of the base 16. The flanges 56 define, as for them, on each side wall 52, two grooves 61 parallel to the short sides, open on the receiving space 60 and adapted to receive a portion of the base 16. The grooves 61 of one of the side walls 52 are placed in With respect to the grooves 61 of the other side wall 52. At the equidistance of the side walls 52, the shoe 50 has, on the surface of the base facing the receiving space 60, a locating element extending parallel to the walls. 52. In FIG. 2, the registration element is a V-shaped groove 47. In connection with FIGS. 3a and 3b, a method of mounting one of the mounting profiles 15 on the deck 4 of the framework 3. C As illustrated in Figure 3a, the shoe 50 is fixed to the deck 4 by means of a screw 58 passing through one of the fixing holes 54. The pad 50 can then pivot about a pivot axis A corresponding to the vertical axis of the fixing hole 54. The pad 50 is positioned in such a way that the V groove 47 is aligned with the longitudinal direction X of the frame 3. To do this, a cord may be placed on the frame 3 between the highest point and the lowest point, then the V groove 47 of each pad 50 is aligned with the cord.
The shoe 50 is placed in a mounting position in which a line 11 passing through the fixing holes is offset from the transverse direction Y of the frame 3 of the angle 0 between each of the short sides and the line perpendicular to the one of the big sides. The side walls 52 are then parallel to the longitudinal direction X and define a first access opening 01 to the receiving space 60 in the vertical direction Z. Given the spacing between the free edges of the flanges 56, the first Access opening 01 has a minimum dimension in the transverse direction Y (i.e. the smallest spacing between the side walls 52 taken in the transverse direction Y) corresponding substantially to the width 11 of the base 16. The ends free side walls 52 having a spacing at least equal to the width 11 of the base 16, the side walls 52 do not interfere with the base 16 and the base 16 of the mounting profile 15 can be placed in the receiving space 60 of the shoe 50 with its longitudinal direction X1 in correspondence with the first direction D1. The grooves 61 are spaced from the base 16, parallel thereto. As shown in FIG. 3a by an arrow R, the shoe 50 is rotated about the pivot axis A by a distance corresponding to the angle θ between each of the short sides and the line perpendicular to the one big sides. In FIG. 3b, the fixing member 50 is placed in a locking position in which the line 11 passing through the fixing orifices 54 extends substantially in the transverse direction Y of the frame 3. The lateral walls 52 are then inclined relative to the longitudinal direction X of the frame 3 so as to define a second access opening 02 to the receiving space 60 in the vertical direction Z. The second access opening 02 has a minimum dimension in the direction transverse direction (i.e. the smallest spacing between the lateral walls 52 taken in the transverse direction Y) which is strictly smaller than the width 11 of the base 16. In this position, by appropriately selecting the arrangement of the lateral walls 52, in particular according to their inclination with respect to the long sides, their length and their spacing, it is possible for the vertical parts 55 of the lateral walls to be provided. s 52 come into abutment against the base 16 of the mounting profile 15 in the transverse direction Y. The contacts of the side walls 52 with the base 16 are offset in the longitudinal direction X. Advantageously, the sections 15 of the mounting structure 10 present a certain mobility with respect to the sealing structure 70, to take into account in particular the phenomena of differential expansion of the materials of the mounting profiles 15 and the sealing structure 70. The free ends of the side walls 52 having at least locally a spacing strictly less than the width 11 of the base 16, the side walls 52, two grooves 61 opposite receive a portion of the base 16 and interfere with the base 16 to block it. The side walls 52 of the shoe 50 thus form locking elements of the mounting profile 15. By choosing the grooves between which the base 16 is retained, it is possible to adjust the height of the mounting profile 15. The shoe 50 is then immobilized in rotation by screwing a screw 58 in the deck 4 through the other mounting hole 54. The mounting profile 15 is thus fixed to the frame 3 extending in the slope. The mounting structure may also include a stop member adapted to lock the mounting profile 15 in the longitudinal direction X with respect to the frame 3. The receiving space 60 and the side walls 52 of the pad 50 may then have size allowing, in the locking position of the pad 50, an expansion in the longitudinal direction X of the mounting profile 15. The stop member forms a blocking point and the pad 50, a dilating point. Alternatively, one could provide that one of the pads 50 achieves the blocking point. Depending on the dimensions of the solar energy recovery system 2, a plurality of mounting profiles 15 may be placed end to end in the longitudinal direction X.
To ensure the control of the expansion of the mounting profiles, a splice can be placed in the housings 46 of two adjacent mounting profiles 15, the splice being fixed to only one of the mounting profiles 15.
The previously described mounting structure 10 has been implemented with an energy recovery system 2 comprising a plurality of adjacent photovoltaic modules 5 in two perpendicular directions. Such a mounting structure 10 could however be implemented with any other arrangement of photovoltaic modules 5 or other, in particular with two or more adjacent panels in only one of the two perpendicular directions. This mounting structure 10 could also be implemented with a single photovoltaic panel. The mounting profile 15 may be adapted to receive the edge of only one panel in its holding portion 25. This may particularly be the case of a mounting profile 15 used for a peripheral panel or when a single panel must be mounted on the frame 3, a tight connection with the rest of the cover can then be provided. The invention is, moreover, not limited to the previously described embodiment of the fastener 50. In particular, the side walls 52 may have only one groove 61 or more than two grooves 61. By moreover, only one of the two side walls 52 could be provided with one or more grooves 61, the locking occurring by wedging between the side walls 52, the groove 61 preventing the output of the mounting profile 15 vertically. One could also provide a fixing member 50 of rectangular outline having a central fixing hole in the base 51 between the side walls 52. One could also provide a fastener 50 without a base, side walls 52 not being integral with each other but pivotally mounted separately on the frame 3. The mounting structure 10 also includes sealing structures 70 which extend across the slope and which are each placed between the adjacent transverse edges 7 of two photovoltaic modules 5. The sealing structures 70 are provided to seal between the transverse edges 7 of the recovery panels 5. FIG. 4 represents one of the sealing structures 70 which extends in the direction transverse Y, between adjacent transverse edges 7 of two photovoltaic modules 5.
The sealing structure 70 comprises first 71 and second 72 sealing profiles, for example extruded aluminum, superimposed and between which the transverse edges 7 of photovoltaic modules 5 are clamped sealingly. In particular, the first sealing profile 71 comprises a base 73, generally flat, having a length L2 in an extension direction which corresponds here to the transverse direction Y, and a width 12 in the longitudinal direction X. The length L2 the first sealing profile 71 illustrated substantially corresponds to the width of a transverse edge 7 of a photovoltaic panel 5, the first sealing profile 71 may however have any other appropriate length. The description of the sealing structure 70 made in relation to the longitudinal X, transverse Y and vertical Z directions defined for the frame 3 is easily transposable to any other orientation of the sealing structure defined from the extension direction. the first sealing profile and two directions perpendicular to each other and to the direction of extension. The first sealing profile 71 comprises two supports 77 which extend vertically from the base 73. The supports 77 are arranged on either side of a median YZ transverse plane. The terms "inner" and "outer" relating to the first sealing profile 71 will refer to elements respectively placed near and at a distance from the median transverse plane YZ. Each support 77 has a horizontal wall 78 parallel to the base 73 and connected to the base 73 by two vertical ribs 79 spaced apart. The horizontal wall 78 of each of the supports 77 extends in the longitudinal direction X with respect to the inner vertical rib 79 by an inner shoulder 80 extending towards the other support 77. The horizontal walls 78 of the supports 77 respectively have surfaces. coplanar superior 85 which form bearing surfaces on which the transverse edges 7 of the photovoltaic modules 5 can rest. As with the bearing surfaces 20 of the mounting profile 15, the bearing surfaces 85 of the first sealing profile 71 are each provided with a detent groove 86 in which a seal 87 covering the surface support 85 is snapped. In particular, each of the seals 87 covering the bearing surfaces 85 is in the form of a plate having a corrugated upper surface with which the transverse edge 7 of the photovoltaic panel 5 comes into contact. As will appear in the following description, the first sealing profile 71 is advantageously dimensioned so that the bearing surfaces 85 are located at a distance, measured in the vertical direction Z, substantially equal to the vertical distance between the transverse return 39 of the rim 38 and the bearing surfaces 20 of the mounting profile 15. The supports 77 delimit with the base 73 a drainage pipe 90. In particular, the drainage pipe 90 is delimited by the internal vertical ribs 79 of the The drainage pipe 90 has an upper opening with edges formed by the bearing surfaces 85. The drainage pipe 90 is thus arranged under the bearing surfaces 85, with the inner shoulders 80 overhanging the drainage pipe. 90, so as to recover infiltration water upstream of the bearing surfaces 85.
In FIG. 4, the first sealing profile 71 comprises a central drainage duct 74 which extends in the vertical direction Z, delimiting in this profile 71 two drainage ducts 90 forming two distinct compartments. The central drainage duct 74 is delimited by two vertical walls 75 arranged on either side of the median transverse plane YZ, and by a horizontal wall 76 connecting free ends of vertical walls 75 opposite the base 73. The horizontal wall 76 of the drainage pipe 74 is located at a vertically measured distance greater than that of the bearing surfaces 85. The base 73, the drainage pipe 74 and the supports 77 are arranged so as to have a symmetry with respect to the plane transverse YZ median. The first sealing profile 71 has, however, an asymmetry formed by an external drainage pipe 100 arranged under one of the bearing surfaces 85, on the other side of one of the drainage pipes 90. external drainage 100 has a bottom wall 101 which extends in the extension of the base 73, in the longitudinal direction X, opposite the drainage pipe 90 to a free end. The external drainage duct 100 also comprises a flange 102 which extends from the free end of the bottom wall 101 in the vertical direction Z. The flange 102 has an end portion 103 inclined outwards.
The external drainage duct 100 is thus arranged under the bearing surface 85 and has an upper opening whose inner edge is constituted by the bearing surface 85 and an outer edge is constituted by the end portion 103 of the flange 102. As will become apparent in the following description, the external drainage duct 100 can make it possible to recover infiltration water downstream of the bearing surface 85 but also to recover the condensation water forming under the photovoltaic modules 5. The second sealing profile 72 is in the form of a flat plate having substantially the same length as the first sealing profile 71 and a width corresponding to the spacing between the vertical ribs 79 of the supports 77.
The second sealing profile 72 has two positioning walls 91 parallel to one another and perpendicular to the plate. The two positioning walls 91 have a spacing in the longitudinal direction X substantially equal to the spacing of the vertical walls 75 of the central housing 74. The positioning walls 91 are arranged to come on either side of the central housing 74. an outer surface facing away from the central housing 74, each positioning wall 91 has a snap groove 92. The second sealing profile 72 comprises two counter-bearing surfaces 95 arranged on a lower surface of the plate respectively facing against bearing surfaces 85. Counter-bearing surfaces 95 are intended to rest respectively on transverse edges 7 of photovoltaic modules 5, on the opposite side to bearing surfaces 85. Counter-bearing surfaces 95 are covered respectively by seals 93, such as lip seals, snapped into the latching grooves 92 of the positioning walls 91 corresponding. The bearing surfaces 85 of the first sealing profile 71 and the abutment surfaces 95 of the second sealing profile 72 thus form a securing part of the sealing structure 70 at the transverse edges 7 of the photovoltaic modules 5. To ensure the attachment of the first 71 and second 72 sealing profiles and the seal between these sealing profiles, the securing portion also comprises a clamping device in the form of a clamping screw 96 passing through the second profile of sealing 72 and extending into the central housing 74 of the first sealing profile 71. The invention is however not limited to such an embodiment of the clamping device. In particular, a flanged system similar to that described above could be provided. As indicated above, the sealing structure 70 implemented with several photovoltaic modules 5 adjacent in two perpendicular directions, could however be used in any other arrangement comprising at least two adjacent photovoltaic modules 5 in the longitudinal direction X.
