The Report Is In!
Read the report put out by the Center For Environmental Innovation In Roofing about PV Racking Criteria for Low-Slope Metal Roof Systems.
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 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.
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 S-5-K Grip clamp was specifically developed to fit Klip-Rib® and other bulb snap-together seams. The design utilizes multiple inserts (sold separately) in order to accommodate a variety of bulb snap-together profiles. Each insert has a unique shape that allows for a tight fit and provides increased holding strength over other attachment options.
Through the use of 90,000 S-5-E Mini clamps, AGT was able to install 37,144 rigid thin-film PV modules while maintaining the roof’s integrity and preserving the roof manufacturer’s warranty. The completed solar array covers more than 70% of the 1 million sq. ft. standing seam roof, thus making it at completion the largest single rooftop installation in North America. What’s more, the ease-of-use of the S-5-E Mini clamps helped to streamline the installation process, saving time and labor costs.
