S-5! updates line of trapezoidal metal roof solar mounts

S-5!, an authority on metal roof attachment technology, introduces the newest addition to its line of RibBrackets for mounting solar panels to a variety of trapezoidal rib metal roofs.

The RibBracket V is a sheeting-only solar attachment that can be placed anywhere along the roof’s ribs and is designed specifically for Ternium TR 72, TR 101 (R-72 and R-101) and similar roof profiles commonly found in North and Latin America. With flex-to-fit legs, the design of the bracket ensures proper fit and places the fasteners in shear rather than pull-out, providing a substantially stronger attachment.

“RibBracket V provides a secure, dependable and economical solution that is quick and easy to install,” said Rob Haddock, S-5! CEO and founder. “Our S-5! Research & Development team spent months in concept and prototyping to come up with another versatile, cost-effective and state-of-the-art solar mounting addition to our RibBracket line.”

Its compatible top rib dimension range is .75 in to 1 in (19 mm to 25 mm), and its elevated profile provides 4 inches (100 mm) of air space above the rib to maximize airflow under the solar panels and a large channel for wire management.

“At S-5!, we continue to innovate new and better solutions in a constant product improvement and invention/reinvention mode,” Haddock said. “It is the very foundation of our business. We are always evaluating ways to bring competitive advantages to our customers and distributors, and to ensure our products remain ‘user-friendly’ to both.”
