S-5! Launches VersaBracket-47

Colorado Springs, CO, June 1, 2009—The new VersaBracket-47™, by S-5!® is a stronger, more versatile and lower cost bracket option to easily mount virtually anything to a face-fastened metal roof profile.

Dustin Haddock, Manager of Product and System Development at S-5!®, conducted extensive load testing research during development and tested the VersaBracket-47™ load strength to 1283 pounds ultimate, an increase of 863 pounds over previous solutions when tested on standard 16 gauge purlins. Haddock added, “The great value in the VersaBracket-47™ is its impressive holding strength. This makes it a much more cost effective solution because you simply don’t need to install as many to withstand design loads.”

The VersaBracket-47™ can also be ordered with custom attachment holes for specific applications. The patent-protected, encapsulated butyl sealant design also provides absolutely the safest way to make a penetration on a face-fastened metal roof – virtually eliminating the possibility of leaks and corrosion.

VersaBracket-47™ is so strong it easily supports heavy-duty applications like snow retention and solar panel installations. For face-fastened profiles, the VersaBracket-47™ is the perfect match for the S-5!® ColorGard® snow retention system and PV Kits.

The VersaBracket-47™ will begin delivery in early June 2009.
