Daikin UK’s solar thermal range has become one of the first in the UK to pass the new MCS Standard MCS for pitched roof installation kits.

MCS 012 comes into effect on 30th June 2014 and accreditation ensures that Daikin solar systems are eligible for the domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (dRHI).

The new standard aims to give installers and householders peace of mind that their solar thermal fixing system meets the highest design and manufacturing quality standards.

Kamlesh Vadukul, product specialist, solar thermal, at Daikin UK said: “We are delighted that our solar thermal systems have been accredited under the new MCS 012 standard, which means installers and householders can be confident that Daikin solar thermal in-roof and on-roof fixing systems meet the necessary standards for wind uplift, weather and fire resistance.

“MCS accreditation of both installers and renewable heating products is an eligibility requirement for the dRHI payments. It is vital that installers partner with manufacturers that are willing to invest in product testing and choose systems which are accredited to the latest MCS standards.”
