S-5! has done hundreds of tensile load tests parallel to the panel seam and on various gauges and profiles, we have tabulated the results for your convenience.
S-5! clamps will not fit on face-fastened trapezoidal rib or corrugated type panels.
The point of the S-5! screw is rounded to a specific radius and polished to eliminate abrasion to the panel finish when tightened.
There are some seams on which S-5! clamps should either not be used or used only with caution.
S-5! clamps are completely compatible with most painted or unpainted materials.

Use the S-5-E and crimp the seam to 180 degrees at desired clamp location. Read more ...
The S-5-N and S-5-N Mini clamps have been designed for application on the popular 1″ nail strip metal roof profiles.
The S-5-A clamp is used only in conjunction with SnoRail and SnoFence. Not recommended for other utility attachments.
The S-5-B (Brass) is limited in use to traditional double-folded copper standing seam profiles, and traditional folded batten seam profiles.
The S-5-E clamp is designed especially for the traditional double-folded standing seam profile that is so popular all over Western Europe.
The S-5-T clamp is especially designed for seam profiles which resemble the letter “T” in their cross-section.
The S-5-U clamp will fit about 85% of the standing seam profiles manufactured in North America.
The S-5-Z will fit “bulb” seam profiles, such as Zip Rib, BEMO, similar Morin profiles and Berridge Cee-Lock in North America.
S-5! setscrews are designed to dimple the seam material without puncturing, scratching or harming it.
When attaching to this type of standing seam metal roof, the S-5! clamp can be attached at a clip location or between clips.
