The first time I came across an S-5! Clip was two years ago on a roofing project at Naval Base Guam. After completion of an over 150,000 square foot standing seam metal roof with Serrano Development Corporation, part of the scope was to ensure that the roof-mounted ventilation across this vast metal roof was properly secured to the structure. The S-5! Clips brought on this particular job were pretty neat in its construction and offered a versatility I had never seen before. A superior product that works well on these particular roof systems. It was strong. Plain and simple.
Near the end of last year, S-5! announced the expansion of its product line with 14 new clamps to attach roof accessories including solar and photovoltaic products, to metal roofs.
Give the Colorado Springs, Colorado-based company credit for developing the new products to be cost-effective non-penetrating attachment systems. S-5!'s CorruBracket 100T attaches to corrugated roofing profiles and is fixed to the crest of the corrugation, leaving the drainage plane free of holes to protect against leaks. CorruBracket 100T comes with a factory-applied EPDM rubber gasket seal on the base and reservoir that conceals the EPDM from UV exposure.
S-5!'s S-5-V Clamp and S-5-V Mini Clamp fit most vertical-folded seam profiles manufactured in North America including structural and architectural profiles. The S-5-V Clamp works with other S-5! products including ColorGard, and the S-5-V Mini Clamp attaches rooftop accessories including signs, walkways and satellite dishes.
S-5!'s S-5-H Clamp and S-5-H Mini Clamp are two-piece clamps that accommodate metal roof panels with a horizontal seam. The clamps attach to the horizontal seam on the vertical leg of the seam.
My suggestion for metal building owners-if you don't have these on your roofs, you are missing out.
