All S-5! mounting solutions utilize the best waterproofing methods available and suit the standards, roof cultures, and practices in any global market. S-5! offers corrugated exposed-fastened attachment solutions for both rail and rail-free systems.

Solar Mounting Solutions for Standing Seam Roofs

The first rule of thumb in rooftop mounting to modern standing seam roofing is to do the roof no harm – that means do not penetrate it and do not inhibit its ability to thermally cycle with temperature change. The wrong mounting method can often result in violated roof warranties and roof damage.

Anchoring items to the structure through the roof threatens weather integrity and also violates the membrane’s thermal-cycling behavior by pinning the roof panels to the structure. The right mounting solution provides secure attachment without any penetration and without violating thermal movement.

S-5! offers penetration-free attachment solutions for rail and rail-free systems on standing seam and other concealed fastener roof types.
