S-5 U Mini Clamp
|Item code||Brand name||Model number|
S-5-U Mini Clamp
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! PV-Kit can easily be attached to an S-5! Mini clamp for a complete, UL listed solar mounting solution.
The S-5-U clamp is our most popluar and versatile clamp, fitting about 85% of the standing seam profiles in North America. The S-5-U Mini is a bit shorter than the S-5-U and has one setscrew 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!
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.
Each S-5-U Mini Clamp includes:
- Structural aluminum attachment clamp
- Required hardware (stainless steel)
- A bit tip for tightening setscrews using an electric screwgun
NOTE: Starting Summer 2020, S5! will begin shipping Mini Clamps WITHOUT the M8 Bolt (shown below in image), as a rolling change (this will not affect the Standard Clamp models). After stock runs out, the Minis will only ship with the clamp and set screw going forward. The Mini version is primarily used to mount solar panels. When using the solar PVKIT 2.0 in conjunction with the Mini clamps, there is no need for the bolt, and/or the supplied bolt is often not the correct length, hence the change. If needed, M8 bolts will still be available for order in 16, 20, and 40 mm lengths.
