AceClamp/PMC Industries Inc. has released its COLOR Snap snow-retention system that matches the color of a standing-seam roof. The system’s retention bar snaps into retaining clips that have been pre-installed on AceClamp’s SSMR fasteners. Installers then tighten the bolts on the clips to secure the bar in place. A color-matching, 2-inch-wide metal strip is then inserted into the bar’s front-facing groove, blending the rail system into the color scheme of the roof.

Access Mounting Clamp Fasteners on Solar Installations More Easily

L-Foot from AceClamp/PMC Industries

L-Foot from AceClamp/PMC Industries

The new L-Foot from AceClamp/PMC Industries makes installing solar racking systems easier than ever. Installers no longer have to contend with wide, L-shaped brackets that prevent complete access to mounting clamp fasteners.

The new L-Foot does not cover the top-mounted bolt on the AceClamp ML or impede access to the AceClamp A2 side bolt, making any adjustment or re-torquing quick and easy. The bracket’s shorter foot allows complete access to the clamp’s grounding cable channel, so the bracket doesn’t have to be removed to install the grounding wire.

The FM-Approved AceClamp ML is a standing seam metal roof (SSMR) clamp system that can accommodate almost any application or roof seam profile. It is UL 2703 compliant. Its two-piece design allows installation at any point on the seam with one of the tightest vibration tested grips in the industry. The single fastening screw is top-loaded, providing easy, quick access for the contractor, completing installation in less than half the time of conventional side-mounting systems.

The AceClamp A2 is one of the strongest clamps tested, compared with single set-screw clamps, in the SSMR market. It is UL 467 and 2703 compliant. Its unique design virtually eliminates the need for periodically re-torquing clamps. The A2’s innovative solution prevents torque back-out by employing a distinctive “push-pin” design that locks two stainless steel pins onto the roof panel to secure the clamp. The A2 also saves time and money where grounding cables are used, as the clamp is designed with a grounding cable groove incorporated into the clamp itself. A stainless steel sleeve and set-screw kit securely hold the grounding wire in place. For the installer, this feature eliminates the need for a separate grounding attachment. Like the AceClamp ML, the A2 does not penetrate or scratch the roof’s surface, preserving manufacturers’ warranties.

AceClamp/PMC Industries Can Apply the UL Mark to Roof Fasteners and Solar Kits

AceClamp/PMC Industries has received authorization to apply the UL Mark to its AceClamp non-penetrating, standing-seam metal roof fasteners and solar kits. This stamp of approval indicates a product has passed stringent testing for code requirements and performance.

The AceClamp A2 and Solar Kit and AceCamp ML and Solar Kit were tested for Mechanical Loading and Bonding Evaluation in accordance with UL 2703. The AceClamp A2 and Solar Kit was also evaluated to UL 467 for its integral ground-lug function.

UL 2703 covers rack mounting systems, mounting grounding/bonding components, and clamping/retention devices for specific flat-plate photovoltaic modules and panels. UL 467 applies to grounding and bonding equipment in accordance with national electrical codes.

To meet UL 2703 requirements, mounting and clamping devices are submitted to rigorous testing methods to confirm the products will withstand most any environment and maintain electrical conductivity.
