A Cost-Effective Mounting Solution for Most Vertical, Machine-Folded, Standing Seams.

S-5-V Brochure

Seeking a Versatile Clamp for Vertical Machine-Folded Seams?

The S-5-V (“V” stands for vertical) is a cost-effective solution for most machine-folded seams in vertical orientation and within certain dimensions. It is non-penetrating and one of our most popular standing seam metal roof clamps.

There may be other S-5! options more appropriate or cost-effective for your specific application. 


Minis Available

The V Mini clamp is a more economical solution for lighter-duty attachments where Herculean holding strength is not required.

All standard and Mini clamps undergo rigorous load testing. Negative load normal-to-seam testing (pull-up) is performed on all Mini clamps, and parallel-to-seam testing (drag load) is performed on all standard clamps.

Be sure to check out the many other features on the clamp overview page.
