S-5!® RibBrackets and CorruBrackets

S-5!® RibBracket I-IV™

RibBracket™ can be used to mount almost anything onto the most common exposed-fastened, trapezoidal roof profiles marketed in North America today. No messy sealants to apply! No chance for leaks! The RibBrackets comes with a factory-applied EPDM rubber gasket seal already on the base, and the S-5!® patented reservoir conceals the EPDM from UV exposure, preventing drying and cracks.

Installation is simple! The RibBracket is mounted directly onto the crown of the panel, straddling the profile. No surface preparation is necessary; simply wipe away excess oil and debris, align, and apply. Secure through the pre-punched holes using the appropriate fasteners or Bulb-tite rivets for the supporting roof material.

These S-5! RibBrackets are not on stock available but can be shipped from S-5!, USA, after costumer request – even in small quantities and in short time with air freight. Please call us for quote.

S-5!® CorruBrackets™

CorruBracket can be used to mount almost anything to corrugated metal roofing and is compatible with 7/8″ and 3/4″ corrugated roofing.

B-Klemme

CorruBracket requires no messy sealants, so there’s no chance for leaks! It comes with factory-applied butyl sealant already in the base, and the reservoir conceals the sealant, preventing UV degradation. CorruBracket is so strong, it will even support heavy-duty applications like snow retention. For corrugated profiles, CorruBracket is the perfect match for our ColorGard® snow retention system. CorruBracket is economical and facilitates quick and easy installation.

Corrubracket

CorruBracket 100T is affixed to the crest of the corrugation, leaving the drainage plane free of holes to protect against leaks. For medium-duty applications, the bracket can be attached directly to the sheeting, accommodating ancillary attachment anywhere along the corrugation. For heavy-duty applications, the bracket can be fixed into the underlying substrate for additional support without crushing the corrugation. Having no messy sealants to apply, CorruBracket 100T comes with a factory-applied EPDM rubber gasket seal already on the base, and the reservoir conceals the EPDM from UV exposure, preventing UV degradation.

These S-5! Corru-Brackets are not on stock available but can be shipped from S-5!, USA, after costumer request – even in small quantities and in short time with air freight. Please call us for quote.

Please note in general:

Please make sure that the load coming into the clamp will be taken by the structure of the roof. Assumption is that the determination has been made that the roof to which the S-5! clamps will be attached is structurally adequate. Any loads imposed on the S-5! clamps will be transferred to the panels. Panel seams must have sufficient flexural strength to carry these loads. Panels must also be adequately attached to the building structure, and the structure must be sufficient to carry these loads. In particular, the snow and wind loads, the additional loads from the installations attached to the clamps, as well as the increased loads in the edge and corner areas of the roof construction must be taken into account. A sufficient number of clamps must be provided. For statically relevant clamps, a distance of at least
500 mm from the end of the standing seam profile must be maintained. RoofTech, the makers and distributor of S-5! clamps make no representations with respect to these variables. 
It is the responsibility of the user to verify this information, or seek assistance from a qualified design professional or stress analyst, if necessary.

Responsible for the stability of a building structure is the building owner or the owner or operator. The installer of the system is responsible not only for the system but also for the roof on which the system is installed. Whoever installs a system on an existing roof without having checked the stability beforehand, violates existing law! For critical installations, inquire for specific test data of ultimate tensile load on specific panel materials and seam types. The sufficient holding force of the roofing to the supporting or substructure must always be ensured. The sufficient holding force of the roofing on the supporting or substructure must always be guaranteed. Proof must be provided by the customer or installer. In cases of doubt, a structural engineer must be consulted to determine the loads and its effects.  

Please note the installation instructions of the respective S-5!® clamps and the other products used! Mounting the clamps take care that the set screws and bolts are tightened with the right screw tension as written in each installation instruction (also available under “Information” and on the homepage of S-5!: www.s-5.com). When tabled values are used, screw tensions should be verified and factors of safety should be used as appropriate.

When mounting rigid objects such as rails, pipes, cable trays, etc. on the clamps, these must be separated at regular intervals (max. 3m) in order to limit deformation due to thermal length changes.The thermally induced change in length of the roofing must not be hindered!

With some roofs made of profiled sheets (e.g. with round bulb seams, snap seams, RibRoof seams, etc.), it must be ensured that the clamps in the sliding area of the sheets are not mounted on or next to the holders of the roofing. In the case of double standing seam roofing, the S-5!® E and B clamps can, under certain circumstances, hinder the thermally induced length change of the sheet if, despite the high clamping point of the S-5!® E and B clamps, the foot of a sliding clip extends into the clamping area of the clamp. In this case, the S-5!® E and B clamps should be placed at a distance of 25 mm from the sliding clips.

In the case of handcrafted metal roofing on wooden formwork, the edge and corner areas should not be covered with modules due to the limited load-bearing capacity of the roofing and the adhesives. In the central area, the skipping of seams are usually not possible. Therefore we recommend to install clamps on each seam. The installation of PV systems represents a punctual load entry, therefore we recommend reduced clip distances and screwed clips. The mounting and fastening of the clamp should be carried out between the clips to achieve an optimal load sharing.

The material properties of the respective metals, the combination with each other as well as the installation instructions and regulations of all manufacturers involved (including those of the metal roof) must be observed.

The suitability for the intended use is checked by the user himself. If technical details are not described separately, this does not release the company carrying out the work from its obligation to check the individual case and clarify the correct technical facts beforehand.

It must be ensured by the planner and the specialist company responsible for the installation that the planning and installation are carried out strictly in accordance with the national and site-specific building regulations, occupational safety and accident prevention regulations, standards and environmental protection regulations. Every person who plans and installs with our products is obliged to inform himself independently about all rules and regulations for technically correct planning and installation and to observe them. This also includes obtaining the current status of the necessary rules and regulations.
