S-5! Clamps Withstand Florida Storms

When Altair Energy installed a 4kW PV system on a metal seam roof at Bay High School in Panama City, Florida, they used S-5!™ clamps to attach the solar panels. They relied on this S-5! product to comply with the school’s requirement of zero penetration of the roof.

According to Scott Davies, representing Altair at the time of installation in 2005, S-5! clamps were recommended by a maintenance employee at the school because he had witnessed their effectiveness in a previous installation of an air conditioning system. The PV system has since weathered high winds and severe coastal storms with no damage to the roof. According to Davies, “The S-5! clamps are great products for raised metal seam roofs.”

The clamps used for the Bay High School project are one of several products designed and produced by S-5!. S-5! has clamps to fit virtually any metal roof profile. The new S-5-PV kit is designed for easy attachment of photo voltaic panels. The VersaBracket™ attaches virtually anything to a face-fastened roof system, while the new CorruBracket™ works with most corrugated profiles. S-5! also offers several snow retention systems, including ColorGard®, which provides the ability to perfectly match the color of the roof.
