S-5!® in the News

Of course we can't tell you about every project S-5! products are used in, or every time our products are mentioned in another publication online. But here are a few industry articles we think you'll enjoy. Read about S-5! in the news.

Featured Products


X-Gard can be designed as a one- or two-pipe system spanning up to 48". No other pipe snow retention system on the market has proven stronger than X-Gard.

The innovative double-clamp design allows X-Gard to provide unprecedented holding strength when attached with S-5!'s standard or even mini-sized clamps. The employment of two clamps with each bracket and the unique shape of the NEX 2.0 pipe enable a properly installed X-Gard system to provide a reliable snow retention solution in a wide variety of situations.

S-5!'s new EdgeGrab™ is specifically designed to be used in conjunction with our patented S-5-PV Kit for solar array end conditions.

The EdgeGrab accommodates PV frame thicknesses of 30–48 mm (if the L-flange is positioned below the stud’s hex nut) and 34–51 mm (if the L-flange is positioned above the stud’s hex nut).

EdgeGrab uses the same S-5-PV Kit base assembly as the universal PV grab and will work on most exposed-fastened and corrugated metal roofs.

The REAL Truth About Setscrews

The average ultimate failure load of our 2-screw clamp is in the range of 1,600-2,400 pounds — three times that of our competitor's clamp! And unlike cup tipped setscrews, our round point setscrews will not damage the roof nor void the roof manufacturer's warranty.

Latest Success Stories

Orchard Park, NY Solar Array Installation

Harvest Hill Golf Course was in need of an easy solution to retrofit PV arrays to existing cart-house structures without penetrating the standing seam metal roof panels. Frey Electric, commissioned for the project, turned once again to S-5! to provide a strong, non-penetrating mounting solution that could withstand the 12:12 pitch. Within only 18 days, the 37.44 kW system was commissioned. It is expected to produce 20% of the golf course’s annual energy consumption.
