SOLAR PANEL MOUNTING ROOF BRACKETS

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.

A standing seam metal roof has a life expectancy consistent with that of a framed PV solar module. Combining an effective 30 year power source with 40 year roof, while using S-5!’s zero-penetration technology creates the most sustainable metal roof solar mount available with alternative power generation.

Many people are unaware that this installation will not compromise the roof manufacturer’s warranty.

The 5-S PVKIT is designed specifically to tightly secure framed photovoltaic modules to standing seam metal roof systems with the S-5! zero-penetration guarantee.

The new and improved S-5 PVKIT 2.0 boasts lower installation time and cost for PV flush-mounting while still delivering the tightest and most secure solar panel mounting system on the market.

While the PVKIT systems remain the easiest, most cost-effective way to install solar panels directly to standing seam metal roofs, the standard S-5! and S-5! mini remain the attachment of choice for rack and rail solar systems.

The S-5 metal roof clamps and GRipperFix rail system provide a really secure, safe way for solar panel mounting onto your roof. The S-5 range of aluminium clamps and stainless steel screws fit almost all metal profiles.
