The RibBracket is the perfect attachment solution for specific North American trapezoidal, exposed-fastened metal roofs.These profiles are commonly referred to as R-Panel or PBR-Panel.
Mount HVAC, walkways, snow guards, railed PV systems and more to your metal roof. You can also pair this metal roof bracket with the S-5-PVKIT® for rail-less (direct-attach™) solar PV mounting. When additional height is desired with the S-5-PVKIT, use RibBracket III.
With the RibBracket, there are no messy sealants to apply. The factory-applied, EPDM rubber gasket weatherproofs and makes installation easy. The reservoir conceals EPDM from UV exposure, preventing drying and cracking.
The RibBracket features a slotted top hole, which accommodates standard M8 nuts and bolts, simplifies alignment and maximizes adjustability in attaching ancillaries.
RibBracket is a structural aluminum attachment bracket, compatible with all common metal roofing materials and many North American trapezoidal profiles.
RibBracket is mounted directly onto the crown of the trapezoidal sheet using stainless-capped piercing screws (provided) or Bulb-Tite rivets (not provided). The sheeting-only attachment allows the bracket to be mounted anywhere along the rib.
RibBracket has been rigorously tested for load-to-failure results in sheeting-only. All pre-punched holes must be used to achieve tested strength.
Be sure to check out the many other features on the bracket overview page.
No surface preparation is necessary. Simply wipe away excess oil and debris, align and apply. The RibBracket is mounted directly onto the crown of the panel, straddling the profile.
Secure through the pre-punched holes using the S-5! piercing screws supplied or Bulb-Tite rivets.
