Clamps Accommodate Metal Roof Panels With a Horizontal Seam

S-5-H clamp and S-5-H Mini clamp

S-5-H clamp and S-5-H Mini clamp

S-5! introduces two clamps for metal roof panels. The S-5-H clamp was developed to securely and cost-effectively accommodate metal roof panels with a horizontal seam. The S-5-H allows for attachment to a horizontal seam on the vertical leg of the seam.

The clamp’s two-piece design allows it to be installed anywhere along the length of the rib, simplifying installation. Just place the clamp on the seam, slide the insert piece into place and tighten the setscrews. After the clamp is installed, affix ancillary items using the top stainless steel bolt provided. The S-5-H can be used with the S-5! ColorGard snow retention system and other heavy-duty applications.

The S-5-H Mini is a bit shorter than the S-5-H and has one setscrew rather than two. The mini can be used for attaching a variety of rooftop accessories, including signs, walkways, satellite dishes, antennas, rooftop lighting, lightning protection systems, solar arrays, exhaust stack bracing, conduit, condensate lines and mechanical equipment. S-5! mini clamps are not compatible with S-5! SnoRail/SnoFence or ColorGard snow retention systems.

One-piece Clamp Fits Standing-seam Panels with Horizontal Seams

The S-5-H90 is a one-piece clamp that was developed to accommodate metal roof panels with a horizontal seam greater than 0.65 inch.

Turning the clamp 90 degrees so that the bolt hole side is facing up, slip the clamp on the seam and tighten the setscrews. Go to the S-5! website for information about properly attaching S-5! clamps. After the clamp is installed, affix ancillary items using either of the two threaded bolt holes and bolt provided. The S-5-H90 is perfect for use with S-5! ColorGard and X-Gard snow retention systems and other heavy-duty applications.

The S-5-H90 Mini is a bit shorter than the S-5-H90 and has one setscrew and one threaded bolt hole rather than two. The mini is the choice for attaching all kinds of rooftop accessories: signs, walkways, satellite dishes, antennas, rooftop lighting, lightning protection systems, solar arrays, exhaust stack bracing, conduit, condensate lines, mechanical equipment—just about anything!*

The S-5-H90 and S-5-H90 Mini clamps are each furnished with the hardware shown to the right. Each box also includes a bit tip for tightening setscrews using an electric screw gun. The structural aluminum attachment clamp is compatible with all common metal roofing materials excluding copper. All necessary stainless steel hardware is included. Please visit www.S-5.com for more information including CAD details, metallurgical compatibilities and specifications.

The S-5-H90 clamp has been tested for load-to-failure results on a variety of horizontal standing seam roof profiles from leading panel manufacturers. The independent lab test reports can be found on the company’s website.

Clamp Fits Vertically Folded Seam Profiles

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.

Plug Tools into Retractable Tethers

Gear Keeper’s line of option-rich retractable tethers

Gear Keeper’s line of option-rich retractable tethers come standard with patented Q/C fittings. When a tool (weighing up to 2 pounds) is unplugged from the tether, the user selects the next tool to use, plugs it in and returns to work. Designed for maximum productivity, the tethers keep tools close to the body when stored while still allowing complete accessibility when in use. For example, the “Multi-Mount” clamp-on tool retractor for web belts (up to 2.25 inches) is designed for tools up to 36 ounces. Each tether in the series comes complete with a two-axis, rotating clamp-on belt clip that offers complete range of motion for any job.

Clamp Resists Wind Uplift and Seismic Vibration

Installers of attachment systems on standing-seam metal roofs (SSMR) can now rest assured their roofs will resist wind uplift and seismic vibration with the A2 AceClamp. The A2 AceClamp’s unique design virtually eliminates the need for periodically re-torquing clamps to preserve manufacturers’ warranties, as is recommended for other SSMR clamp systems.

The A2’s innovative solution prevents torque back-out, caused by wind flutter or constant seismic vibration, by employing a distinctive “push-pin” design that locks two stainless steel pins into the roof panel to secure the clamp. The design effectively prevents loosening or torque back-out and is Patent-Applied-For.

Prior to the A2, manufacturers relied on round or concaved-headed set-screws that turned and rotated into the metal roof’s surface to penetrate and lock into the metal seam. This typically resulted in scratches or damage to the panels’ surface. The A2’s sliding push-pin design eliminates this concern. The A2 solution does not damage or scratch the panel surfaces, thus upholding manufacturers’ warranties while assuring one of the strongest clamp systems in the industry.

For solar-racking installations, the A2 saves time and additional costs where grounding cable brackets are used. The A2 is designed with a grounding cable groove in the clamp. 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, as the cable groove is incorporated into the clamp itself. The stainless steel sleeve also prevents corrosion of the grounding wire while enhancing electrical conductivity.

Clamp Accommodates Round ‘Bulb’ Seam Configurations

S-5-Q clamp

S-5-Q clamp

S-5! has announced its newest metal roof ancillary attachment solution, the S-5-Q clamp. The S-5-Q was specifically developed to accommodate large, round “bulb” seam configurations up to 29 millimeters without piercing the metal roof panel. It will also fit smaller profiles that were not seamed correctly, thereby rendering the panel unable to utilize the intended attachment product. The two-piece design allows the clamp to be installed anywhere along the length of the rib.
