Any loads imposed on the S-5! clamps will be transferred to the roof panels to which they are attached. Roof panels must be adequately fastened to building structure to resist these loads. For critical installations, contact the roof panel manufacturer for specific test data of ultimate tensile load on specific panel materials and seam types.
When relying upon tested load values, setscrew tensions should be verified and factors of safety should be used as appropriate. S-5! snow retention systems are tested for specific design snow loads, roof configurations and metal roof manufacturers. Always install S-5! systems in strict accordance with manufacturer’s published installation instructions.
