Versatile Solar PV Component for Attachment to Face-Fastened, Trapezoidal-Rib Metal Roof Profiles

The ProteaBracket is the most versatile Solar PV attachment solution on the market. It fits most trapezoidal sheet profiles, including pre-assembled foam core panels (IMPs - Insulated Metal Panels).

  • Adjustable attachment base to accommodate varying rib widths, heights, and angles with multiple module mounting options
  • Attached to the sheeting-only, no messy sealants and comes with a factory-applied, EPDM pad to ensure quick installation and a weather-proof fit

ProteaBracket is mounted directly onto the crown of the trapezoidal sheet using stainless-capped screws (provided) or Bulb-Tite rivets (sold separately). It has been rigorously tested for load-to-failure results in sheeting-only.

Choose ProteaBracket for a versatile solar attachment solution. Pair with the S-5-PVKIT® for a direct-attach solution – also ideal for both side-bolted and bottom-bolted rail mounting.

For PV installations with extreme snow load conditions (see load tables for limitations).

How to Install ProteaBracket on Your Roof Profile*

No surface preparation is necessary. Simply wipe away excess oils and debris; peel the release paper, align and apply.

Secure through the pre-punched holes using the stainless-capped, self-piercing S-5! fasteners or Bulb-Tite rivets.The ProteaBracket is mounted directly onto the sides of the crown of the roof panel, enabling module or rail attachment anywhere along the ribs.
