Products and Services Offered: Attaching things to metal roofs used to be a problem. The common method was to drive screws through the panel surface, which not only jeopardized the integrity of the roof, but violated its warranty as well. With the advent of S-5!™ attachment solutions, the problem is solved. Consisting of clamps that attach to the seams without piercing the metal, they present a quick, simple, secure solution and are as dependable as the roof systems to which they are attached.
Making use of the S-5!™ attachment technology are three proprietary snow retention systems, two of them fence-style products and the third based on the use of individual snow guards.
Background: Rob Haddock, S-5!™ founder and inventor, has been in the metal construction industry for 35 years. Starting out as a metal building contractor, he is today a well-known metal roof consultant, author and speaker. Haddock’s contracting company was among the largest in the country at that time, with some 10 million square feet of metal roofing successfully installed. After transitioning out of that business he authored a number of training and educational curricula for various trade groups, and, having studied metal roofing history and applications both domestically and abroad, began lecturing and sharing his unique insight.
Haddock has an unwavering belief that metal roofing is superior to all other types of roofing, and believes just as strongly that S-5!™ attachment technology makes metal the most user-friendly system on the market. “There is simply no other roof to which things can be attached with such ease,” he says.
S-5! zero-penetration clamps attach ancillary items to standing seam metal roofs without violating the integrity of the roof or the roof’s warranties. The patented clamps mount snow-retention and wind-performance systems, solar arrays, signs/banners, light fixtures, gas piping, stack/flue bracing, walkways, HVAC, lightning protection, equipment screens, conduit, condensate lines and more.
