S-5! Introduces New Clamp Technology For Nail Strip Metal Roof Profiles

Colorado Springs, CO - S-5!, one of the world's leading authorities on metal roof attachment technology, introduces the newest addition to its line of clamp product solutions, which allows rooftop ancillaries to be attached to standing seam metal roofs.

The NH 1.5 is part of the “N” line of clamps developed for nail strip profiles. Designed specifically for 1-1/2" (38 mm) nail strip profiles with a wider horizontal dimension (> 0.475” and ≤ 0.800”), the S-5-NH 1.5 is an ideal mounting solution for VicWest Prestige, NewTech FF150 and similarly-dimensioned profiles.

“More and more panel manufacturers are coming onto the scene with Nail Strip type profiles,” said S-5! CEO & Founder Rob Haddock. “Although they all look similar, there is a range of dimensioning. This profile is one of the most challenging out there for S-5!-quality, penetration-freedom and affordable production costs. Our S-5! Research & Development team spent months in concept and prototyping to come up with the most versatile, cost-effective and state-of-the art solution.”

The NH 1.5 features an innovative “hinge” and forms to the shape of the seam, preventing damage at the point of attachment, while offering optimal holding strength. The reversible insert allows for superior fit on both wide and medium-width profiles.

For ease of installation, the T-30 Torx setscrews are angled to facilitate tool insertion and improve driver bit withdrawal after screw tensioning. The clamp is available in both standard and Mini sizes and made from 6000 series aluminum, with 300 series stainless steel hardware. The NH 1.5 is engineered for heavy, load-critical applications, such as snow retention.

“At S-5!, we continue to innovate new and better solutions in a constant product improvement and invention/reinvention mode,” said Haddock. “It is the very foundation of our business. With hands-on experience in the field and on roofs, this company is always evaluating ways to bring competitive advantages to our customers and distributors, ensuring our products remain “user-friendly” to both.
