  1. Seeking a Zip-Rib®, Bemo, Kalzip® (or Similar "Bulb” Seam) Mounting Solution?The S-5-Z clamp ("Z” stands for Zip-Rib) is specially designed to fit Kalzip® and similar profiles that have a round "bulb" seam configuration. It's two-piece clamp design allows it to be easily installed anywhere along the length of the rib.

    The S-5-Z Mini clamp is a more economical solution for lighter-duty attachments where Herculean holding strength is not required. It is a bit shorter than the standard S-5-Z  clamp with one setscrew rather than two.

    All standard and Mini clamps undergo rigorous load testing. Negative load normal-to-seam testing (pull-up) is performed on all Mini clamps, and parallel-to-seam testing (drag load) is performed on all standard clamps.

    S-5-Z Mini Specifications
    • Specially designed to fit Zip-Rib®, BEMO, Kalzip® and similar profiles with a round "bulb” seam configuration and seam diameters of ≤ 22mm.
    • Two-piece clamp design means you can easily install anywhere along the rib.
    • Light and medium-duty applications, such as utility mounting.
    • Smaller than the standard S-5-Z.
    • One T-30 Torx round-point setscrew.
    • M8 bolt sold separately.

    Does the S-5-Z Fit Your Roof Profile?

    How to Install the S-5-Z Mini Clamp on Your Roof Profile*
    Using the ergonomic finger grip "tail” of the insert, position the insert at the desired location against the base of the seam and just below the bulbous portion (either side of the seam). Rotate the clamp into place over both the seam and insert. You can hold this assembly in place with one finger, while tightening the roundpoint Torx Drive (T30) setscrew to the specified tension. Then, affix ancillary items using the M8 bolt sold separately.

    Other options for this seam profile (contact us)
    Sometimes the intended "bulb” diameter is larger than the specified dimension for the Z due to seam-closing error. This can be corrected by hand, closing the seam to its proper dimension at clamp locations.

    Alternatively, the S-5-Q can be used when the (bulb) seam dimension is too large for the Z. The Q is designed to fit larger "bulb-shaped” profiles. When a nut-and-bolt connection is required, see the S-5-ZF Mini.

    Some bulb seam profiles utilise a stationary clip (or "halter”) to anchor the roof to the structure. This is typical of BEMO and Kalzip. (ZipRib generally utilizes a moveable two-piece clip.) When a stationary "halter” is used for roof attachment, the halter location must be avoided when using the S-5-Z. Alternatively, the S-5-ZH can be used at halter locations, preserving roof design integrity.
