Offering Secure Solutions for Mounting Balance of System Components

Engineered Clamps, Brackets and Interface Hardware Specifically Designed for Your Metal Roof Profile and Solar Application.

Complete Your Solar PV Project With Secure S-5! Metal Roof Attachments

Balance of system (BOS) refers to all of the various components of a photovoltaic (PV) system beyond the actual modules themselves. Of course, the mounting system (rails or racking, S-5 clamps and PVKIT®) are BOS components.

But, there are other BOS elements, such as wiring, switches, battery chargers, junction boxes, inverters, optimizers, other module-level power electronics (MLPEs), service walkways, conduit and wire chases.

At S-5!, we offer metal roof attachments for mounting these related solar PV components on both standing seam and exposed-fastened metal roofing.

All of our components carry a material/workmanship warranty for the life of the roof, so you are assured S-5! is “on the job” for the life of the solar array!

Reduce Maintenance and Optimize Your Solar PV System

Balance of system (BOS) component mounting should be designed with the same level of diligence as the modules themselves. Choosing secure, reliable mounting hardware for these components to optimize performance is a critical decision for module mounting on every PV project.

How do you plan the most efficient and functional solar PV system for your metal roof? Start with S-5! clamps and brackets, and trust you are building a sustainable renewable energy system.

Which S-5! Attachment is the Right Way for Mounting Balance of System Components?

From service walkways to conduit, wire trays, optimizers, other MLPEs and monitoring equipment, you can use S-5! clamps, brackets and GRIPPERFIX® universal utility mounting system to securely attach the above ancillaries to your PV array.

To Build a Durable Solar PV System with BOS on Standing Seam and Exposed-Fastened Metal Roofing, Start With an Engineered Solution

Roof-mounted solar has an average service life of more than 30 years. Are you mounting your system with engineered, durable and dependable attachments?

The mounting method you select can have a significant effect on material costs, installation time and labor, logistics and freight expenses of the finished system. The associated costs and time are factored into our diverse product offerings.

S-5! offers BOS mounting components for use with PVKIT, a rail-free (or direct-attach™) solution, as well as rail-based systems.
