S-5!® S-Clamps for snap-lock and angle seams
The S-5!® S-Clamps, made of Aluminium, have an opening slot of 14mm and are versatile for a big number of industrial seams such as snap-together profiles from
Fischer-Kliptec, Schlehbach, Prive-Stylinov, Ruukki or similar.
The S-Clamps are also well suited on standard angle seams.
There are 2 options of S-5! S-Clamps:
The S-Clamp with two set-screws (and two M8 threads on top and one M8 stainless steel bolt) is used for heavy demands e.g. fall protection systems and in the ColorGard® snow retention. (30 pieces per box)
The S-Mini with one set-screw (and M8 thread and M8 stainless steel bolt) are utilized in various instances when multiple clamps are required for the attachment of rigid objects to the seams (50 pieces per box).
The S-5-S and S-5-S Mini clamps are each furnished with the hardware shown above. Each box also includes a bit tip for tightening setscrews using an electric screw gun. A structural aluminum attachment clamp, the S-5-S-Clamps are compatible with most common metal roofing materials excluding copper. All included hardware is stainless steel.
Samples of Applications:
Install S-5! S-Clamps:
The S-Clamps are versatile for a big number of different industrial profiles:
- Partially thread the setscrews into the clamp by hand.
- Determine how to position the clamp on the seam: see drawings above.
When attaching to machine-folded seams (regardless of panel profile and geometry), S-5! clamps are designed to engage the seam as shown in Illustration on top; with setscrew opposite seam fold. On many snap- together type seams, the setscrews are on the open (or overlap) side of the seam. On some seams, this aspect of clamp orientation is not critical.
- Don’t fix the S-clamps on or beside the clips of the profile. The thermal elongation of the panels may not be hindered! Tighten the setscrews using a screw gun* and the included screw gun bit tip. Setscrews should be tensioned and re-tensioned as the seam material compresses, i.e. tighten the first setscrew, then the second; then repeat until each setscrew achieves the recommended torque. The setscrews will dimple the seam material but will not penetrate it. When relying on published load values, setscrew tension should be verified periodically using a calibrated torque wrench as indicated below to ensure the tool is consistently achieving the proper torque range.
4. For critical attachment applications utilizing an M8-1.25 X 16mm Hex Flange Bolt, tighten the included M8 bolt with 18Nm (160 inch pounds, 13 foot pounds).
