Installing solar panels, HVAC units, duct supports, walkways and other items on a roof has always posed a real challenge around roof penetrations and weather proofing.
That is until now.
With the GRipperFix system and S-5 roof clamps you can install solar panels and HVAC units or anything else on your roof without any concerns over potential damage to your roof or voiding your roof warranty.
The GRipperFix system with S-5 roof clamps offers an innovative non-penetrating roof clamping and bracket system that will provide a secure clamp on a range of metal roofing profiles including:
- Standing seam and Snaplock
- Trimdek™ and other trapezoid style roofing
- Clip lock style concealed fix roofing
- Nailstrip and Enseam
- Snap-Line 45™
- T-shaped seams
- Horizontal seams
- Bulb seams
The GRipperFix rails provide a super strong, no rust mounting base for attaching anything from solar panels to walkways and HVAC units.
Sturdy metal tabs slot neatly into the GRipperFix struts and can slide allowing for easy positioning. The tabs simply screw into the appropriate S-5 clamp.
Intelligent design means you no longer need to screw through the roof into the purlins in order to secure the mounting brackets.
The S-5 range of metal roof clamps use flat nosed stainless steel screws to press the metal profile rib against the other side of the clamp.
The screws will indent the rib slightly but will not penetrate the metal. Tiny flanges on the clamps provide additional holding power.
The S-5 CorruBracket is also available for corrugated profiles but a weatherproof penetration into the purlins will be required to hold the bracket to the roof.
Butyl sealant protects the metal roof from any water ingress.
The S-5 range of roof clamps and brackets are so strong they are even approved as a secure anchor point for working at heights safety purposes.
*Only on tested applications.
GRipperFix can also be fixed directly to profiles such as Trimdek using self-piercing fasteners.
Self-drilling fasteners means there is no drilling swarf or rust and the GRipperFix is guaranteed for 25 years.
Now there is an easier way to attach solar panels to your roof.
In the past installers had no choice but to screw older style mounts through your precious metal roof into the supporting structure.
This has often caused problems with corrosion issues especially where careless tradies have damaged the roof unnecessarily or the mounting bracket has not protected the penetrations from water ingress.
Many people are unaware that this type of damage can void your roof warranty.
The S-5 metal roof clamps and GRipperFix rail system provide a really secure and safe way for mounting solar panels onto your roof.
The S-5 range of aluminium clamps and stainless steel screws fit almost all metal profiles. And the GRipperFix rails bolt on to a tab attached to the S-5 clamp.
The rails allow for a wide range of positioning adjustability making installation a quick stress-free job.
S-5 and GRipperFix: the perfect solution for all metal roof solar racking.
