S-5! Sharing Expertise In METALCON's Educational Sessions

The Company's New CanDuit™ Clamp Will Be On Display As Well


Colorado Springs, CO – Officials from S-5!, one of the world's leading authorities on metal roof attachment solutions, will be involved in a number of education sessions at METALCON in Indianapolis, providing opportunities for attendees to earn valuable continuing education credits on those topics.


On Wednesday, Oct. 12, Shelly Higgins, S-5! Architectural & National Accounts Director, will team with Christian Vachon, ATAS International’s Director of Solar Technology, to present The Total Solar Solution. The program covers the benefits of metal building construction incorporating roof-mounted solar panels and solar air-heating wall panels.

At 8:30 am on both October 12 and 13, S-5!’s Founder and Director of the Metal Roof Advisory Group, Rob Haddock, presents the fundamentals of Understanding Metal Roofing: Parts I and II. Often billed as "Metal Roofing 101" and regarded as an essential “crash course” for all in-industry personnel, it includes technical information presented in a common-sense fashion that makes the art and science of metal roofing clear, concise and understandable. Contractors, salespeople, architects, specifiers, roof consultants, engineers, building owners and maintenance staff will all benefit from attending.

On Thursday, Oct. 13 at 11:30, Dustin Haddock, S-5! Vice President of Research & Development, will present Solar in High Wind & Snow Country: Design Considerations. Mark Gies, S-5! Director of Solar Business, will present ROI of Installing Solar PV on Metal Roofing at 2.30 p.m. Both sessions take place in the Sustainability Learning Center.

Attendees of the show are invited to stop by S-5!’s booth #419 to see first-hand the company's new CanDuit™Clamp, which secures and support gas piping, condensate lines, electrical conduit and other round-shape objects to metal roofs, in combination with any S-5! clamp or bracket, including the GripperFix® utility mounting system. S-5!’s team will be on-hand to explain the features and benefits of this technology.

“Indianapolis is a great hub for the metal construction and manufacturing industries,” says Rob Haddock. “Where else can you meet industry colleagues all in one place!”
