Solar Panel Attachment

The S-5-PV Kit is the ideal solution for mounting solar panels to a metal roof. The PV kit fits many solar panels on the market. Utilized with S-5!'s attachment clamps or brackets, solar panels can be attached to many standing seam and metal roof profiles.

S-5-PV Kit
The new S-5-PV Kit is one of the first solar module mounting solutions in the industry to be listed to the new UL subject 2703, a standard that covers both bonding and mounting. In order to meet the UL requirements, the S-5-PV Kit had to be submitted for tests, being evaluated under the severest of conditions to confirm that the product would withstand the elements while maintaining electrical conductivity. Furthermore, the S-5-PV Kit has gained an ETL Listing to UL 1703.

With the new S-5-PV Kit, the module is simply anchored with the kit and automatically provides a ground path in the module frame. No lugs or wire required except to connect one string of modules to another and to ground the system.

The S-5-PV Kit continues to be the easiest, most cost-effective way to install solar panels directly to standing seam metal roofs and remains the most popular choice worldwide.

S-5!'s new EdgeGrab™ is specifically designed to be used in conjunction with our patented S-5-PV Kit for solar array end conditions.

The EdgeGrab accommodates PV frame thicknesses of 30–48 mm (if the L-flange is positioned below the stud’s hex nut) and 34–51 mm (if the L-flange is positioned above the stud’s hex nut).

EdgeGrab uses the same S-5-PV Kit base assembly as the universal PV grab and will work on most exposed-fastened and corrugated metal roofs.
(The EdgeGrab is not UL or ETL Listed)
