OMG Roofing Products has introduced PowerGrip Universal, a rooftop attachment anchor for mounting solar racking systems and other products to virtually any commercial roof. PowerGrip Universal is designed to reduce or eliminate the need for ballast in solar racking systems, so there’s less weight, material handling and labor on the roof.

PowerGrip Universal is designed with wind performance in mind and offers up to 3,300 lbf. (13.34 kN) of tensile strength, 2,500 lbf. (11.12 kN) of shear strength, and 2,000 lbf. (8.9 kN) of compressive load strength.

Made of cast aluminum, PowerGrip Universal units are designed with a base ring that gets secured through the roofing cover and into the structural roof deck, and a waterproof cover plate to keep water from infiltrating the roof assembly.

PowerGrip Universal units are easy to install, saving both time and labor when compared to alternative options. The system is designed to transfer the load to the structural roof deck, and does not require any membrane welding. PowerGrip Universal units are typically installed in less than five minutes.

In addition to commercial solar rack systems, PowerGrip Universal can be used for other roof mounted items such as pipe supports, step crossovers, raceways, satellite dishes, small antennas and HVAC applications.
