Do You Need to Mount a Satellite Dish to Your Metal Roof?

Avoid corrosion and rust from ponding water and rotting timber when you mount using S-5!

Need Help Identifying Your Roof Type?

Achieve a Simple, Secure Attachment That Preserves Your Roof and Its Warranty

The mounting of roof satellite dishes and other communication equipment to a metal roof must be durable and preserve the roof warranty. Often, when rooftop equipment is mounted with wood or concrete blocking, roof degradation is the unwanted result.

Lumber is porous and will retain moisture; treated lumber contains chemicals that accelerate metal roof corrosion. Rubber pads cause capillary entrapment of moisture leading to roof corrosion. Using concrete as ballast encourages ponding water and rust to develop on your roof. The alkalis in cementitious mortar attack the protective coatings of steel roofing.

Non-corrosive S-5! clamps, brackets and GRIPPERFIX®, permanently secure this equipment to virtually any metal roof profile without damaging the roof system ― promoting free drainage, eliminating corrosion and at lower cost than all the wrong ways!
