S-5! U Clamp
|Item code||Brand name||Model number|
for Standing Seam Roofs
S-5! clamps can be used to attach mounting feet or rails to a standing seam roof. The S-5! clamps attach to the panel seam by the tightening of two "bullet-nosed" stainless steel setscrews against the seam material. (This is usually done with an industrial grade screwgun.) The setscrews compress the seam material against the opposite wall of the clamp. They will "dimple" the seam material, but will not penetrate it, leaving the roof warranty intact. Threaded holes in the clamp (and stainless hardware provided) enable the easy attachment of various ancillary items to the clamps.
The S-5-U clamp is by far our most popular and most versatile clamp. It fits about 85% of the standing seam profiles manufactured in North America—including most structural and architectural profiles. It can be used on vertically oriented seams and, by rotating the clamp 90 degrees, it can also be used on most horizontal 2" seam profiles. Its simple design, generous dimensioning and multiple hole orientations are what make the S-5-U clamp so versatile for use with the S-5!® snow retention products, such as ColorGard®, as well as with other heavy-duty applications.
Installation is as simple as setting the specially patented round-point setscrews into the clamp, placing the clamp on the seam, and tightening them to the specified tension. Then, affix ancillary items using the bolt provided with the product.
The S-5-U clamp has been tested for load-to-failure results on most major brands and profiles of standing seam roofing. The independent lab test data found at www.S-5.com can be used for load-critical designs and applications. S-5!® holding strength is unmatched in the industry. Please Note: For horizontal seams under 0.65" do not use this clamp.
Each S-5-U Clamp includes:
- Structural aluminum attachment clamp
- Required hardware (stainless steel)
- A bit tip for tightening setscrews using an electric screwgun
