The S-5-V clamp from S-5!

The S-5-V clamp from S-5! is a versatile clamp that fits vertically folded seam profiles manufactured in North America, including most structural and architectural profiles. Its simple design and generous dimensioning are what make the S-5-V clamp usable with S-5! snow-retention products, such as ColorGard, and other heavy-duty applications. Installation includes setting the patented roundpoint setscrews into the clamp, placing the clamp on the seam and tightening them to the specified tension. Then, affix ancillary items using the stainless-steel bolt provided.

Quality Edge has launched Matterhorn Metal Roofing, which is made from steel and available in four profiles: Shake, Slate, Tile and Standing Seam. A two-year development process resulted in carefully crafted splits, cracks and grains that mimic each profile’s natural counterpart. The shake profile features 21 individual shake designs to enhance the natural overall effect. In addition, Matterhorn’s patented fourpoint fastening system conceals the overlapping metal panels on slate and shake. All profiles have been tested to withstand hurricane-force winds up to 130 mph.

AEP Span is now offering its metallic-coated and pre-painted architectural metal panels with graffiti-resistant coating systems.

AEP Span’s factory applied graffiti-resistant coating systems consist of a three-coat system including a primer, a color coat, and a graffiti-resistant clear coat in a low to medium gloss and a high gloss. These coating systems are available in all AEP Span paint systems.

The graffiti-resistant coating systems work as a barrier of protection over a steel surface and is formulated to work with PPG’s DuraPrep Prep 400 graffiti remover. The coating systems prevent most graffiti material from gripping or shadowing the surface, which allows the field applied DuraPrep Prep 400 graffiti remover to wipe away graffiti. If an AEP Span architectural metal panel is spray-painted, graffiti can be eliminated by applying the graffiti remover directly to the stain, allowing it to sit for 10 to 60 seconds, then wiping it with a clean cloth or scrubbing it with a nylon brush. Most stains can be removed in 10 minutes or less.

Other graffiti that can be removed include paint overspray, pen and marker ink, lipstick, scuff marks, tape residue, bugs, tar, and many other substances that mar the appearance of steel building panels.

Add Components to Your ColorGard Snow Retention System

S-5!'s SnapClip II

S-5!’s SnapClip II

SnapClip II or SnapClip III are optional components that can be added to your S-5! ColorGard snow retention system to further retard the migration of snow. It has a special integrated rubber “foot” to prevent abrasion of the panel’s finish. SnapClip snaps onto the back of the crossmember and extends down to the flat of the roofing panel.

Snap the SnapClip onto your ColorGard crossmember after installation. One or two clips are used between seams (please visit www.S-5.com for details). Mount the SnapClip to the back of the crossmember using the lock that results with the rubber “foot” resting properly on the panel surface. When applying downward pressure on the part, the “toe” should engage the surface of the panel just before the “heel.” Screw SnapClip into place utilizing the provided stainless steel self-tapping screw.

SnapClip II has two locks and is especially made for seam heights of 1 inch (25 mm) and 1 3/4 inch (44.5 mm) snap. It will also fit 2-inch (51-mm) vertical seams but not 2 inch (51 mm) horizontal.

SnapClip III has three different locks and will work on seam heights of 1 3/4 inch (44.5 mm) up to 3 inches (76 mm).

Metal Panel’s Continuous Clip Protects Against Wind Uplift

The T-Armor Series from Metal Sales Manufacturing Corp.

The T-Armor Series from Metal Sales Manufacturing Corp. features a sealed seam cap, which allows for multi-directional panel installation and simple replacement of a damaged panel, as well as provides weathertightness. The T-Armor Series also offers an optional continuous concealed clip, specifically designed for roofs that are frequently exposed to high winds and heavy environmental loads. The clip, which can extend the full length of the panel or be used on specific areas, creates an increased area of contact for panel-to-clip engagement and allows for thermal expansion and contraction of roofing panels.

Mount Snow-retention Systems and Solar Panels

S-5!'s VersaGard

S-5!’s VersaGard

VersaGard is a strong, versatile and affordable exposed-fastened solution for mounting snow retention and solar panels. It is compatible with almost any trapezoidal, exposed-fastened profile. VersaGard comes with factory-applied butyl sealant already in the base; the S-5!-patented reservoir conceals the sealant from UV exposure, preventing drying and cracks. A VersaGard pipe snow-retention system functions without cluttering the lines of the roof. It also can be used in lieu of an L-foot to support the installation of photovoltaic panels. VersaGard works with most rail or racking systems and can be oriented parallel or perpendicular to the roof line.

Fill Space Between Purlins with Fiberglass

Energy Saver FP system from Silvercote

Energy Saver FP system from Silvercote

The Energy Saver FP system from Silvercote consists of a network of straps (white painted galvanealed banding), bright white support fabric and fiberglass blanket insulation. Each piece of the support fabric is custom-made to fit a specific location in or on a building. The fabric is fastened to the underside of the roof framing and is supported by the banding. Fiberglass insulation then is installed above the fabric in varying thicknesses to attain desired insulating values. The triple layer system is a suitable way to fill the additional space from larger purlins or can be used with standing-seam clips as supplied by some building manufacturers.

High-power Density Flexible PV for Standing-seam Metal Roof Systems

Miasole has released its new FLEX 01-N PV module for architectural standing seam metal roof systems.

Miasole has released its new FLEX 01-N PV module for architectural standing seam metal roof systems.

Miasole, a company of Hanergy, has released its new FLEX 01-N PV module for architectural standing seam metal roof systems. The Miasole FLEX N series PV module is the roofing industry’s first high power density flexible PV module with a power efficiency of 15.5 percent. The FLEX module’s high performance self-adhesive provides a simple peel-n-stick installation method with the industry’s first 25-year adhesion guarantee.

The Miasole FLEX module fully adhered to the metal roof systems eliminates the need for racking and mechanical attachment or penetrations. The FLEX PV module low profile has the same wind uplift rating of the roof system design, making FLEX the best solar choice for high wind zones. Weighing less than 0.7 lb/sq ft, FLEX is idea for roofs with low load capacity and buildings in high seismic areas.

The Miasole FLEX N Series module can be purchased from leading metal roof manufacturers already factory laminated to their metal panel for immediate roof top installation using standard construction practices. FLEX modules can be installed in the field by the contractor. FLEX modules simplify project logistics, reduce labor costs, and installation time.
