S-5! S-5-PV Kit


S-5-PV Kit

S-5!'s S-5-PV Kit features a groundbreaking stainless steel mounting disk with twelve nodes designed to ensure the module-to-module conductivity of anodized aluminum solar panel frames. This means it automatically provides a ground path in the module frame. No lugs or wire required except to connect one string of modules to another and to ground the system.

The S-5-PV Kit is one of the first solar module mounting solutions in the industry to be listed to the UL subject 2703, a standard that covers both bonding and mounting. Furthermore, the S-5-PV Kit has gained an ETL Listing to UL 1703.

The S-5-PV Kit is furnished with the steel mounting disk, Universal PV stud, Universal PV Grab and flange nut. Every solar system array has it's own mounting requirements and S-5! has a mounting solution for most metal roofs. The kit is shown to the right with an S-5! Mini Clamp. The S-5-PV Kit is compatible with most common metal roofing materials, including brass and copper.

S-5-PV Kit

S5! Mini Clamps Available

The S-5-PV Kit may be mounted to many different S-5! clamps and brackets on metal roof solar panel systems with no mounting rails.



EdgeGrab w/ S5! Mini Clamp

The S-5!® EdgeGrab™ and S-5-PV Kit together accommodate PV frame thicknesses 30–48 mm (if EdgeGrab's serrated L-flange is positioned below the stud's hex nut) and 34–51 mm (if EdgeGrab's serrated L-flange is positioned above the stud's hex nut).†

The embossed panel guide makes the module placement easier. The mounting disk is multi-directional and rails are not required. Four strategically placed under-disk hooks assist in wire management. The PV grab ears that hold the solar panel in place are broader to allow for ease of installation and precise module engagement.

Accommodating module thicknesses between 30 and 51 mm, the S-5-PV Kit fits the majority of solar panels on the market. Using the S-5! mini clamps, it fits most standing seam metal roofs. Using S-5! brackets or the mini clamps, the S-5-PV Kit works with the Universal PV Grab and EdgeGrab on most exposed-fastened and corrugated metal roofs. The standard Universal PV Grab is designed to fit field conditions (two adjacent panels), while the EdgeGrab is designed specifically for edge conditions at the end of a PV module row.

Clamps & Brackets for the S-5-PV Kit

As a general rule, the following clamps and brackets can be used with the S5! S-5-PV Kit. It is important to contact us for expert S5! advice, even if you have done this before.

The CorruBracket is is a sturdy bracket mount for corrugated metal roofs.

  • Mini Clamp to mount a S-5-PV solar panel system array to a standing seam metal roof.
  • CorruBracket 100T to mount a S-5-PV solar panel system array to a corrugated metal roof.
  • ProteaBracket to mount a S-5-PV solar panel system array to a trapezoidal sheet metal roof.*
  • VersaBracket to mount a S-5-PV solar panel system array to an exposed-fastened metal roof.

*When ProteaBracket™ is used in conjunction with the S-5-PV Kit, an additional nut is required during installation to secure the universal PV stud and mounting disk to ProteaBracket's slotted L-flange.
