S-5! ® and ARCOM Sign Agreement to Promote Products in MasterSpec®

Colorado Springs, CO (March, 2016) — S-5!®, the leader in the safe attachment of ancillary items to standing seam metal roofing and ARCOM, the leader in building specification services and tools, are pleased to announce their partnership in promoting S-5! products to architects, engineers and design professionals in the leading specification software MasterSpec®.

ARCOM carefully reviews each manufacturer and its products to ensure those products meet the quality criteria MasterSpec is known for. MasterSpec, a product of the AIA, has become the most trusted and comprehensive specification system in the building industry. ARCOM provides manufacturer and product information for thousands of products specified in its specifications. Specifiers can quickly access a list of building product manufacturers related to the sections specifiers are working on. ARCOM’s team of professional spec writers will work with S-5! to modify original MasterSpec sections to include content applicable to S-5! products.

S-5! has partnered with many manufacturers and suppliers in the metal roofing and metal building industries to assist in the attachment of an array of items to standing seam metal roofing, including snow retention systems, solar panels, pipes/conduits, HVAC equipment, wind clamps, signs/banners, dishes/antennas, roof walkways and more.

ARCOM and S-5! believe this new partnership will benefit all design professionals as they select and specify products.


ARCOM, the specification experts, exclusively publishes MasterSpec® for The American Institute of Architects (AIA) for use by design professionals involved in building projects. ARCOM owns and publishes SpecText® for use by engineers for infrastructure projects, including water and wastewater utilities and equipment. ARCOM also provides extensive product and manufacturer information through cloud-based specification resources, custom manufacturer specifications, and the SpecBuilder Expert platform. ARCOM’s innovative specification productivity software tools dramatically simplify specification creation, research, editing, and formatting.
