S-5!® can dramatically improve wind uplift performance. In many cases, S-5! WindClamps can double wind resistance for as little as $0.20 per square foot, preventing multiple modes of failure, including clip disengagement (when used at a clip location).
S-5! WindClamps are designed to increase roof system wind uplift performance. WindClamps can increase wind resistance by preventing multiple modes of failure. In fact, WindClamps have proven to be a necessity in some regions, preserving rooftops with an increased chance of extreme weather.
Wind uplift can be quite dramatic, threatening to tear a metal roof from its mounting. Likelihood of failure can be reduced with the use of external seam reinforcement, such as the S-5! WindClamps. For very low cost, S-5! WindClamps increase, and often double, wind resistance, preventing multiple modes of failure, including clip disengagement (when used at a clip location).
