S-5-N Seam Clamp for Metal Roofs

The S-5-N seam clamp was designed with patented S-5!® zero-penetration technology for application on the popular 1" nail-strip metal roof profile. Examples are Taylor Metals Easy Lock, ASC Building Products Skyline Roofing, McElroy Metals Meridian and Newtech machinery's FF100. This clamp boasts a wide throat that accommodates most nail strip profiles, minimizing the need to field crimp the panel leg. An angled wall with a nose permits the S-5-N to engage the triangular type profile during the installation process-there is no longer a need to hold the clamp in place while the set screws are tensioned. The combination of these two features allows the clamp to sit straighter on the seam. Nail Strip Profiles just got a lot simpler!

The S-5-N clamp comes complete with two [2] 3/8"x24 x 0.80" round nose set screws and one [1] M8-1.25 x 16mm Hex Flange Bolt. All hardware is stainless steel.

Installation is simple:

This table represents tensile loads applied to the clamp in a direction parallel to the panel seam. Panels must be adequately attached to the structure at their point of fixity to resist these loads. Allowable loads are listed utilizing a default Factor of Safety (FS) = 2.0. Actual factor of safety is the responsibility of the designer and should be employed as appropriate. Enter desired Factor of Safety and reset/re-tabulate. All tabled values are dependent upon setscrew tension. Load testing of S-5!? clamps is conducted with setscrews tensioned at 150 inch pounds (22 gauge steel profiles) or 115 inch pounds (24 gauge steel and all other metals). When relying upon published load values, setscrews should be tensioned and verified using a calibrated torque wrench between 160 and 180 inch pounds when used on 22ga steel and between 130 and 150 inch pounds for all other metals and thinner gauges of steel.
