The S-5-U clamp is by far our most popular and most versatile clamp. It will fit 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 it so versatile for use with S-5!® snow retention products and other heavy-duty applications.
The S-5-U and S-5-U Mini clamps are each furnished with the hardware shown above. Each box also includes a bit tip for tightening setscrews using an electric screw gun. A structural aluminum attachment clamp, the S-5-U is compatible with most common metal roofing materials excluding copper. All included hardware is stainless steel.
The S-5-U Mini is a medium-duty, non-penetrating seam clamp. It 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 placing the clamp on the seam and tightening the patented round-point setscrew to the specified tension. Then, affix ancillary items using the bolt provided. Go to www.S-5.com/tools for information and tools available for properly attaching and tensioning S-5!® clamps. Thanks to our patented round-tip setscrews, S-5! clamps do not pierce metal roof paneling, thereby protecting roof coatings and weather tightness warranties.
