S-5-V™ Clamp

A Cost-Effective Mounting Solution for Most Vertical, Machine-Folded, Standing Seams.

S-5-V Brochure

Seeking a Versatile Clamp for Vertical Machine-Folded Seams?

The S-5-V (“V” stands for vertical) is a cost-effective solution for most machine-folded seams in vertical orientation and within certain dimensions. It is non-penetrating and one of our most popular standing seam metal roof clamps.

There may be other S-5! options more appropriate or cost-effective for your specific application. 

Minis Available

The V 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.

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

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

Place the clamp over the seam at the desired location and tighten the Torx Drive (T-30) setscrews to the specified tension. Then, affix ancillary items using the bolt (provided with standard V clamp; sold separately for the V 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.
