The S-5-S mini seam clamps are indeed versatile clamps designed for snap-together standing seam profiles. They serve as a shorter version of the original S-5-S seam clamp and offer a range of applications. These clamps are particularly useful for avoiding the need to crimp-seam certain profiles like Firestone UC4 and New Tech Machinery SS550 and SS675.
One notable advantage of the S-5-S mini clamps is their ability to accommodate horizontal seams with a projection under 0.54 inches without requiring double folding of the seam. This feature makes them well-suited for various installations, including solar panels, satellite dishes, rooftop mechanical equipment, signs, and more.
By providing a secure attachment point, the S-5-S mini seam clamps enable the mounting of different objects and equipment onto standing seam roofs without penetrating or damaging the roof surface. This makes them a popular choice for professionals in the roofing and construction industry.
The S-5-S mini seam clamp should never be used with ColorGard snow retention systems. If you are using ColorGard, make sure to use the original S-5-S seam clamp.
