Do You Need to Attach HVAC or a Split System to Your Metal Roof?

Proper duct support, leveling and anchorage of condensing units,The Right Way® to anchor support framing to metal roofs – without harm to the roof.

Need Help Identifying Your Roof Type?

Looking for a Better Way to Mount Than Expensive Rubber Support Blocks, Pads or Wood Blocking?

Ductwork, exhaust and intake hoods are often required on rooftops. In other cases, condensing units are roof-mounted. Some units are frame-mounted just above the roof surface and ducted through the roof or adjacent wall. Gas piping and electrical conduit are often roof-mounted to service HVAC equipment. S-5! offers reliable solutions for all of your mounting applications needs.

When rooftop equipment is mounted with wood blocking, roof degradation is the unwanted result. Lumber is porous and will retain moisture; treated lumber contains chemicals that accelerate metal roof corrosion. Rubber pads and supports trap moisture, also leading to the corrosion of metal roofs. The mounting of HVAC equipment to metal roofs can be challenging as these practices all compromise roof warranties. So what is the right way?

Non-corrosive S-5! clamps, brackets and GRIPPERFIX®, permanently secure this equipment and related services to virtually any metal roof profile with no damage to the roof system – promoting free drainage, eliminating corrosion and at lower cost than all of the wrong ways!
