S-5!®, the inventor of engineered, manufactured, metal roof attachments, has introduced its new SnoBracket™ attachment for mounting snow retention systems to insulated metal panel (IMP) roofs. The new SnoBracket is specially designed to provide the incredible strength required for snow retention applications but with sheet-only attachments. Created specifically for trapezoidal-ribbed IMPs, it comes in two sizes: SnoBracket TB and SnoBracket RB fitting to popular rib profile dimensioning. When paired with S-5! ColorGard®, SnoBracket offers an ideal snow retention solution with durable, tested, watertight, and proven products.
Designed to protect an IMP’s moisture barrier, without the compromise of thermal bridging the SnoBracket features a factory-applied, premium, closed-cell EPDM rubber gasket, creating a positive seal against water intrusion and attaches in-shear using eight self-piercing fasteners, four on each side, resulting in ultimate holding capacity of more than 2,000 lbs. in 26 ga coated steel.
SnoBracket key features include: available in two sizes to fit popular IMPs in the United States and in international markets, sheeting-only attachment avoids thermal bridging with proven strength, compatible with S-5! ColorGard snow retention system, corrosion-resistant materials are warranted for the life of your roof, and endorsed by multiple IMP manufacturers.
Founded by a veteran metal roof expert, S-5! has been an authority on metal roof attachment solutions since 1992. S-5!’s zero-penetration clamps and lifetime brackets attach ancillary items to standing seam and exposed-fastened metal roofs respectively, while maintaining roof integrity and warranties. Made in the United States, S-5! solutions are engineered for a variety of roof-mounted applications.
