The S-5-U clamp is by far our most popular and most versatile clamp. It fits about 85% of the standing seam profiles manufactured in North America—including most structural and architectural profiles. It can be used on vertically oriented seams and, by rotating the clamp 90 degrees, it can also be used on most horizontal 2" seam profiles.
Its simple design, generous dimensioning, and multiple hole orientations are what make the S-5-U clamp so versatile for use with the S-5!® snow retention products, such as ColorGard®, as well as with other heavy-duty applications.
Installation is as simple as setting the specially patented round-point setscrews into the clamp, placing the clamp on the seam, and tightening them to the specified tension. Then, affix ancillary items using the bolt provided with the product. Go to www.S-5.com/tools for information and tools available for properly attaching and tensioning S-5! clamps.
The S-5-U Mini is a bit shorter than the S-5-U and has one setscrew rather than two. The mini is the choice for attaching all kinds of rooftop accessories: signs, walkways, satellite dishes, antennas, rooftop lighting, lightning protection systems, solar arrays, exhaust stack bracing, conduit, condensate lines, mechanical equipment—just about anything!
The S-5-U and S-5-U Mini clamps are each furnished with the hardware shown to the right. Each box also includes a bit tip for tightening setscrews using an electric screw gun. A structural aluminum attachment clamp, the S-5-U is compatible with most common metal roofing materials excluding copper. All included hardware is stainless steel.
