S-5!® ProteaBracket™

ProteaBracket™ is the most versatile exposed-fastened metal roof attachment solution on the market, fitting most trapezoidal sheet profiles with and without intermediate insulation. It features an adjustable attachment base and multiple solar module attachment options (illustrated below) to accommodate varying widths and heights. There are no messy sealants to apply and no chance for leaks; the ProteaBracket comes with factory applied, adhesive rubber sealant to ensure quick installation and a weather-proof fit.

Installation is simple! The ProteaBracket is mounted directly onto the crown of the panel, straddling the profile. No surface preparation is necessary; simply wipe away excess oil and debris, align, and apply. Secure ProteaBracket through its pre-punched holes, using the hardened drill point S-5!® screws.

ProteaBracket is the perfect match for our S-5-PV Kit and spares you the hassle of cold-bridging! For a solar attachment solution that is both economical and easy to use, choose ProteaBracket.

S-5! holding strength is unmatched in the industry.


Multiple Attachment Options

Each ProteaBracket™ is a structural A2 stainless steel bimetal attachment bracket that is compatible with most common metal roofing materials.The ProteaBracket comes with a factory-applied EPDM adhesive rubber sealant on the base that ensures quick weather-proof installation. All four pre-punched holes must be used to achieve tested strength. Mounting hardware is furnished with the ProteaBracket.

*When using ProteaBracket and the PV Kit, an additional M8 x 1.25 stainless flange nut is needed.

Load Test Results

Load Testing Normal to Mounting Surface

This table represents ultimate and allowable tensile loads applied to the S-5!® Bracket in a negative load direction normal to the bracket mounting surface. Please note that this protocol isolates failure to the bracket and fastener connection. It is possible that in an actual construction assembly some other mode of failure may occur at lower loads than those produced with this protocol. Loads imposed on the S-5!® Brackets will be transferred to the panels and their attachment. Panel ribs must have sufficient flexural strength to carry these loads when bracket is used mid-span. Panel attachment and building structure must also be sufficient to carry these loads. The makers of S-5!® clamps make no representations with respect to these variables. It is the responsibility of the user to verify this information, or seek assistance from a qualified design professional if necessary.

Allowable loads are listed utilizing a default Factor of Safety (FS) = 3.0. Actual factor of safety is the responsibility of the designer and should be employed as appropriate. Enter desired Factor of Safety and reset/re-tabulate.

All tabled values are dependent upon fastener connection. Load testing of S-5!® Brackets is conducted with screws deemed appropriate for the product and the material to which it is attached. The fasteners tested in conjunction with brackets are commercially available, the specific type of fasteners are footnoted at the bottom of the load test data table.

Load Testing Parallel to Mounting Surface

This table represents ultimate and allowable tensile loads applied to the S-5!® Bracket with load direction parallel to the bracket mounting surface. Please note that this protocol isolates failure to the bracket and fastener connection. It is possible that in an actual construction assembly some other mode of failure may occur at lower loads than those produced with this protocol. Loads imposed on the S-5!® Brackets will be transferred to the panels and their attachment. Panels must be adequately attached to the structure at their point of fixity to resist these loads.

Allowable loads are listed utilizing a default Factor of Safety (FS) = 2.0. Actual factor of safety is the responsibility of the designer and should be employed as appropriate. Enter desired Factor of Safety and reset/re-tabulate.

All tabled values are dependent upon fastener connection. Load testing of S-5!® Brackets is conducted with screws deemed appropriate for the product and the material to which it is attached. The fasteners tested in conjunction with brackets are commercially available, the specific type of fasteners are footnoted at the bottom of the load test data table.
