(Code: S5-PVKIT)
Rail-less solar panel system (excludes clamp).
£ 5.08
  1. The S-5-PV Kit (excludes clamp) is designed specifically to secure framed photovoltaic modules to standing seam metal roof systems without penetrating the roof's surface, without the use of a rail or violating the roof's warranty. The kit fits the majority of solar panels and metal roofs on the market - including exposed-fastened and corrugated profiles using the S-5! Versabracket..

    S-5! has created a solution for the PV industry that:

    • Fits the majority of solar panels on the market.
    • Fits the majority of metal roofs on the market - including exposed fastened and corrugated.
    • Installs quickly and easily.
    • Is very cost-effective.
    • Universally fits both field (2 panels) and end conditions!

    The concept of combining photovoltaic arrays with standing seam metal roofing is growing and for good reasons. A standing seam metal roof has a life expectancy consistent with that of framed PV modules. A 30-year power source on a 30-year roof, along with zero penetration technology creates the most sustainable roof system available with alternative power generation, all without compromising the roof's warranty!

    PV Kit Features
    • Aluminium body and disc for aluminium clamps. Stainless steel body also available for brass clamps on copper roofing (please contact us).
    • Stainless steel hardware.
    • M8 thread.
    • Longer PV stud accommodates PV frame thicknesses from 33mm to 64mm.
    • Bevelled mounting disk provides an easy to use module placement guide.
    • Four strategically placed mounting disk hooks to assist in wire management.
    • New broader ears on the PV grab allow for even easier installation and precise module engagement.
    • Mounting disk is universally directional for simplicity of installation,
    • Absolutely NO rails required!
    • Incredible holding strength that only S-5! can offer.

    With a service life compatible with the expectancy of metal roofs and attached accessories, the S-5-PV Kit offers unmatched sustainability. The patented design of the attachment clamp and attendant round-point setscrews enables an entire installation without a single penetration through the roof’s surface. Lower installation costs and cooler roofs, combined with rising energy costs and increased environmental concerns all spell a bright, sunny future for PV and standing seam metal roofs. S-5! makes it easy.

    The S-5-PV Kit fits only S-5! Mini Clamps. A flat mounting disk is available for using the S-5-PV Kit with our Versa Bracket, allowing solar panel attachment to exposed fastened and corrugated metal roofing.

    How to Install the PV Kit On Your Roof Profile*
    Install the first row of S-5! clamps or brackets at the edge of the array. Mount the PV Discs and the EdgeGrab/standoff assembly to the first row of clamps. Install the first row of modules. Then install the MidGrab/standoff assembly & PV Disk on clamps or brackets. Place MidGrab/standoff/disk & clamp assemblies. Install additional PV modules.

Difficult to remove flange to create edge clamps. Also you need an additional nut to place under the clamp to prevent the clamp displacing sideways as the clamp is tightened against only one edge. This is made clear in the installation video though.
