Result Solidworks simulation safe or not?

Hello everyone

It is the study of movement and security of a roof with stainless steel tube and covered with glass 10mm thickness, overlap roof terrace size 9.14 x 8.2 m therefore 75m2.

The weight of the glass thickness of 10mm and 25kg \ m2 so I have a total 1875kg which will be distributed on the upper units of the structure.
I simplified and fixed the model and specify the forces.
The layout of automatic movement gives me this result

And after put at scale,
<a target="_blank" href="https://imageshack.com/i/0wptg"><img src="http://imageshack.com/a/img32/594/pt.gif" border="0"></a>
this is the result

In the layout of security I chose the von Mises stresses max and I worked with the safety factor 1 and even more,
<a target="_blank" href="https://imageshack.com/i/g1cg3xg"><img src="http://imageshack.com/a/img577/1232/cg3x.gif" border="0"></a>
and the result is impeccable.

My question is: can I trust these results to move to the fabrication and erection or not?
And how can I know if the roof will withstand that weight for a long time or not? With the wind and the rain?

Thanks

    Hi,
    I see you do this in static simulation, so I don't trust this. I try to you use a non-linear dynamic beacause in this simulation you can obtain very real results. In static simulation you have only one pick, I mean max. force in very short time.
