Mount HVAC, Solar PV, and More Onto Exposed-Fastened, Trapezoidal-Rib Roof Profiles

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, 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.

Choose RibBracket to Help Simplify Alignment and Maximize Adjustability

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.
