The S-5! clamps are the right solution to mount solar systems on top of metal roofs. The clamps attach to the roof seam with two stainless steel setscrews that compress the seam material against the opposite wall of the clamp. The setscrews will dimple the seam without penetrating it. The clamps have threaded holes and the required stainless steel hardware is provided with every clamp. With S-5! clamps you can virtually mount solar systems on any metal roof.
The S-5-U and S-5-U Mini clamps are the most popular of the S-5! clamps and the most adaptable. They can be used with over 80% of standing seam profiles of roofs manufactured in North America. Their adaptable design, which includes multiple screw holes, make the S-5-U and S-5-U Mini easily adjustable for many different roof types. They can be used on horizontal or vertical orientations just by simply rotating the clamp to the desired surface. The clamps are compatible with most metal surfaces, with only copper as an exception (see S-5-B clamps for copper roofing).
Made of structural grade aluminum, the S-5! clamps utilize an intelligent, intuitive design that allows for convenience, versatility and strength. They easily attach to roof panel seams with a tightening mechanism, rather than puncturing the surface. Less harm is done to the roof and is easier to install, as well as uninstall for any future re-roofing projects.
The S-5-U clamps are sold with the hardware shown in the image. All included hardware is stainless steel. The installation of the S-5-U clamps is as simple as placing the clamp on the seam and tightening round-point setscrews, then attach the rails for the solar array using the bolt provided.
