S-5! Offers Both Top-Fix and Bottom-Fix Brackets to Support Multiple Water-Tight Roof Mounting Applications

Roof cultures vary worldwide. In some cases “bottom-fixing” is the common culture. In others “top-fixing” is the only acceptable practice. S-5! manufactures various metal roof brackets to ensure the best attachment solution for your application. Choosing the correct load-tested bracket for your specific roof type, gauge, material and roof culture is made easy on these pages.

You can have peace of mind knowing S-5! product designs will outlive the life of your roof. All seals, gasketing and part designs are industry standard and state-of-the-art. These are the same sealant/gasket chemistries used within the metal roofing industry for weather integrity of the roof itself and proven over the past 50 years.

Metallurgical compatibility to the roof is assured. Our goal is for you to have the best solution at the lowest possible cost for your specific application without compromising roof integrity.

Expertly Designed and Engineered; No Time-Consuming and Risky, Field-Applied Sealants!

When attaching above the water plane we use EPDM (ethylene-propylene-diene monomer). Many of these attachments are “sheet-only” enabling more versatile placement on the roof.

When attaching at the water plane, we use butyl crosslinked (poly-isobutylene-isoprene) polymer and always through to the structure. All part designs incorporate features that protect the seals from U.V. degradation and over-compression from installation and service loads.

S-5! Bracket Sealant Technology

S-5! metal roof brackets feature integrated sealant reservoirs to prevent over-compression of the seal and to protect the sealant from U.V. degradation.

A watertight, factory-applied, 60-year butyl polymer seal is used on S-5! brackets that attach to the decking or structure in the drainage plane of the roof. This butyl polymer along with the EPDM seal on the fasteners forms what we call a “triple seal”.

The EPDM factory-seal is used on sheeting-only attached brackets that mount on roof ribs or corrugations out of the drainage plane. This creates a “double-seal”.

S-5! Only Uses Chemically and Mechanically-Certified Raw Material

Certified quality begins with certified raw material, followed by certified manufacturing, and finally certified testing for holding strength and other product characteristics.

S-5! Metal roof brackets use non-corrosive materials and are metallurgically-compatible with common roof materials - titanium-zinc, stainless steel, aluminum, zinc, galvanized steel, Bonderized™ steel, CorTen steel, and 55% AlZn coated steel (Galvalume®, Zincalume®, ZintroAlum®, Zink-Al™).

  • Made from 6000 Series AL with 300 Series SS Hardware
  • All fasteners feature either a stainless steel or zinc-aluminum cap with EPDM washer

Different specific alloys of these materials have varying characteristics that affect tested holding strength and corrosion resistance. Unless the raw material is certified, it is not possible to ensure the consistency of the strength and corrosion-resistive characteristics of the finished product.
