Rail Systems mounted on S-5!® Clamps
Using S-5! Clamps, rail systems can be simply and securely fastened to seams without penetrating them. The S-5!-Mini-Clamps are usually sufficient for this purpose. These can then be used to mount solar and photo-voltaic modules as well as air conditioners, machines, etc. onto the standing seam metal roof.
All components in Germany related to fixing solar products for PV installations needs a German approval by the DIBt (German Center of Competence for Civil Engineering – Authority of the German Government). The S-5-Z- and S-5-E-Clamps families have the national technical approval by the DIBt No: Z-14.4-719.
Z-Mini under a C-rail
The Mini-Clamps with a M8-threaded top hole and M8-bolt can be use for C- and U-rails as well for easy installations with adapter plates.
Rail with bottom channel fixed on the E-Mini-FL
The S-5! E- and Z-Mini-FL Clamps (with flange with a 18x11mm hole) are the correct choice for rails with the screw channel located on the underside. The hammer-head bolts can be fixed quickly and securely through the slot on the flange.
For mounting rails with bottom or side screw channels the S-5! Clamps without flange can be easily and cost-effectively combined with various adapter plates.
