Who We Serve:

Architects & Designers


Aesthetically-Pleasing...Engineered to Last

Architects consider a number of factors when specifying products and manufacturers for their projects. Climate, aesthetics, roof pitch, structure, form and function are all determining factors. At S-5!, our innovations are grounded in all of the above and engineered to last.

Our products are designed exclusively for use on metal roofing. With a 13% market share in residential roofing and a 34% market share in commercial roofing, standing seam metal roofing (SSMR) is growing in popularity due to its attributes of low life-cycle costs, extended service life and durability. Metal is different from other traditional roofing materials. At S-5!, metal roofing is our core competence. We are the metal roof experts and invented the very space of penetration-free attachments for SSMR.

At S-5!, we constantly work to uphold our reputation as the leading provider of the highest quality products and highest level of customer service when it comes to SSMR. We offer you unparalleled assurances that you can trust S-5! when placing your reputation on the line.

How Does S-5! Serve Designers and Architects?

S-5! serves the design and architectural community through our dedication to providing engineered solutions to attach almost anything to standing seam and exposed-fastened metal roofing. S-5! products are installed on more than 2 million roofs, and are recommended and endorsed by roof manufacturers worldwide.

Our products offer ease of installation, maintenance-freedom and are manufactured by a company with an unparalleled depth of knowledge within the metal roofing industry. We are industry activists with association memberships in the Construction Specifications Institute (CSI), Metal Construction Association (MCA), ASHRAE, ASCE, and ASTM. As an authorized American Institute of Architects (AIA) Continuing Education Provider, you can earn Continuing Education Units (CEU) or Learning Units (LU) by participating in our courses.

We offer designers and architects reliability and dependability. S-5! develops technically prudent yet simple products, allowing almost anything to be attached to metal roofs cost- effectively and permanently. Our extensive line of non-penetrating clamps utilize innovative attachment technology to preserve the superior life expectancy and beauty of a SSMR. You know our name...our brand...and...our reputation because we have been the most recognizable name in the industry since 1992.
