The S-5-KHD Clamp stands for Klip-Rib® Heavy Duty. It can be used for new construction but can also be retrofitted for some applications. The most heavy-duty and durable clamp in the S-5! family, the KHD fits the very distinctive profiles of the Lysaght® Klip-Lok 406, McElroy Mirage, Metal Sales Clip-Loc and AEP Span Klip-Rib®.
KHD is significantly stronger than anything else on the market for these profile types. The clamp is geared for snow retention systems and other heavy-duty applications where holding strength is critical.
The insert placed inside the intermediate seam provides for a holding capacity of more than 3,000 pounds. Such incredible strength requires fewer rows of snow guards than any other option.
Rigorous load testing is performed on all S-5! clamps. Parallel-to-seam testing (drag load) is performed on all standard clamps.
