S-5-S & Mini Brochure

Seeking a Versatile Mounting Solution for Popular Snap-Lock Profiles?

The S-5-S (“S” stands for snap-lock) is a non-penetrating, standing seam metal roof (SSMR) clamp. The S is designed for most popular vertical snap-together profiles -- typically with vertical dimensions of 1.5” (38 mm) and 1.75” (44 mm).

The S is also the perfect solution for traditional, single-fold (angle-seam) horizontal profiles of 1” (25 mm) and 1.5” (38 mm) seam height dimensions and all similar seam types.

Minis Available

The S Mini clamp is a more economical solution for lighter duty attachments where Herculean holding strength is not required.

All standard and Mini clamps undergo rigorous load testing. Negative load normal-to-seam testing (pull-up) is performed on all Mini clamps, and parallel-to-seam testing (drag load) is performed on all standard clamps.

Choose the S (or its Mini) to mount walkways, snow guards, solar panels and other mechanical equipment to snap-lock and some single-fold metal roof profiles. Although the S-5-U will work on these profiles, the S is a better fit and lower-cost solution.

Be sure to check out the many other features on the clamp overview page.

Does the S-5-S Fit Your Roof Profile?

In order for the S or S Mini to fit the types of seams illustrated below, the finished seam must:

  • Be at least 1” high
  • Have a finished seam thickness ≤.54” (13 mm) for snap-lock type profiles
  • Have a horizontal seam dimension ≤.54” (13 mm) for single-fold type profiles
  • Have a male seam height sufficient for the clamp setscrews to fully engage both male and female seam portions together
Installation of solar panels

How to Install the S-5-S Clamp on Your Roof Profile*

Installation is as simple as placing the clamp on the seam and tightening the round point Torx Drive (T30) setscrews to the specified tension. Then, affix ancillary items using the bolt (provided with standard S clamp; sold separately for the S Mini).

*See more detailed installation instructions in the PDF download below.

*S-5! clamps may be moved in the event of initial misplacement. However, due to the ensuing oxidation process which acts as a natural thread lock, we can express no opinion to the performance of a clamp once it has been removed and reinstalled or the ability to remove the clamp after this process has occurred.
