The S-5-U clamp is by far our most popular and most versatile clamp. It fits about 85% of the standing seam profiles manufactured in North America including most structural and architectural profiles.
The S-5-U clamp can be used on vertically-oriented seams and, by rotating the clamp 90 degrees, it can also be used on most horizontal 2 seam profiles. Its simple design, generous dimensioning, and multiple hole orientations are what make the S-5-U clamp so versatile for use with the S-5!® snow retention products, such as ColorGard®, as well as with other heavy-duty applications. The S-5-U Mini clamp is a bit shorter than the S-5-U and has one setscrew rather than two. The Mini is the choice for attaching all kinds of rooftop accessories.
A structural aluminum attachment clamp, the S-5-U is compatible with most common metal roofing materials excluding copper.
