The concept of combining photovoltaic arrays with standing seam metal roofing is growingand for good reasons. A standing seam metal roof has a life expectancy consistent with that of framed PV modules. A 30-year power source on a 40-year roof, along with zero-penetration technology, creates the most sustainable roof system available with alternative power generation, all without compromising the roof manufacturer’s warranty!
The new S-5-PV Kit boasts an important breakthrough in PV mounting technology. It is one of the first solar module mounting solutions in the industry to be listed to the new UL subject 2703, a standard that covers both bonding and mounting. Furthermore, the S-5! Mounting Disk has gained an ETL Listing to UL 1703.
The S-5-PV Kit features a groundbreaking new stainless steel mounting disk with twelve nodes designed to ensure the module-to-module conductivity of anodized aluminum module frames. This means it automatically provides a ground path in the module frame. No lugs or wire required except to connect one string of modules to another and to ground the system. In most cases, the savings in time and materials is sufficient to pay for the entire S-5-PV Kit and clamp setup.
- Fits the majority of metal roofs on the marketincluding exposed-fastened and corrugated
- Installs quickly and easily
- Universally fits both field (2 panels) and end conditions
- Cools roofs by providing shade during intense summer heat, lessening utility costs
- Can be used with all S-5! Mini clamps; use the stainless steel mounting disk to facilitate use with brass clamps
- New, longer PV stud now accommodates PV frame thicknesses from 1.3 (33 mm) to 2.5 (64 mm)
- Beveled mounting disk now provides an even easier-to-use module placement guide
- Four new, strategically placed mounting disk hooks to assist in wire management
- New, broader ears on the PV grab allow for even easier installation and precise module engagement
- Mounting disk is universally directional for simplicity of installation
- Absolutely NO rails required
- Incredible holding strength that only S-5! can offer
Note: Due to the variety of attachment needs, S-5-PV Direct Attachment Solutions are sold separately from S-5! Mini clamps. The S-5-PV Direct Attachment Solutions fits only S-5! Mini clamps, NOT standard clamps.
