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. Its simple design and ample size make it so strong and versatile it can be used with S-5! snow retention products and other heavy-duty applications. Thanks to our patented round-tip setscrews, S-5 clamps do not pierce metal roof paneling, thereby protecting roof coatings and weather tightness warranties.
For horizontal seams under .65" do not use this clamp. Visit www.S-5.com for more detailed information and proper clamp to use.
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.
