S-5! Introduces New Bracket Technology For Trapezoidal Rib Metal Roof Profiles
Colorado Springs, CO - S-5!, one of the world's leading authorities
on metal roof attachment technology, has announced RibBracket V as 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.
Its compatible top rib dimension range is .75 inch +/- to 1 inch (19 mm to 25 mm), and its elevated profile provides 4 inches (100 mm) of air space above the rib to maximize air flow under the solar panels and provide a large channel for wire management.
“RibBracket V provides a secure, dependable and economical solution that is quick and easy to install,” says S-5! CEO & Founder Rob Haddock. “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.
“At S-5!, we continue to innovate new and better solutions in a constant product improvement and invention/reinvention mode,” continues Haddock. “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.”
