Solar and Metal Roofing = A Perfect Marriage

Pairing solar PV with metal roofing is a wise decision. A roof-mounted solar plant is a big investment! Modules today typically have an average service life of more than 30 years. S-5! offers a variety of engineered solutions for mounting solar PV and related components on both standing seam and exposed-fastened metal roofing

    Find the Metal Roof Solar Mounting System that Best Suits Your Application.

    There are multiple options when mounting solar on a metal roof, the details of which can impact installation costs and lifetime performance. Metal rooftop mounting consists of two basic parts: the (roof) mounting hardware and the actual solar panel attachment interface. Choosing to go with a rail-based or rail-less installation method depends on a variety of factors and is also a personal preference. S-5! offers attachment solutions for both methods.

    What Makes the S-5-PVKIT an Ideal Choice for Mounting PV on Metal Roofs?

    Most metal roofs are uniquely different from other roof types. They give the roof covering structural capacity (beam strength), due to their longitudinal seams or rib configurations. As we like to say at S-5!, “The seams (or ribs) of the roof are the rails!.” The PVKIT attaches the modules directly to the seams or ribs of the roof without the need for the addition of rails. This leads to savings in material, equipment needs, shipping, logistics and install time.

    The PVKIT is mounted to S-5 clamps and brackets according to roof type. The distance from the roof surface to the back sheet of the module is approximately 4” or more, an ideal height for module cooling and performance.

    Wire management is easier than you might think. In the words of our customers, “...it’s a piece of cake…”

    When using the seams or ribs of the roof as rails, the modules are installed in landscape using the manufacturer’s prescribed mounting zones, which must be aligned with mounting locations.

    The weight of PVKIT mounting is about 15% of rail mounting. Think of the savings in freight and logistics, not to mention added load to the roof structure!

    The S-5-PVKIT is a great option for mounting to a metal roof. Just use the rails that are already there–they are free!
