S-5!, the inventor of engineered, manufactured, metal roof attachments, introduces 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 pounds in 26 ga coated steel.
SnoBracket Key Features:
- Available in two sizes to fit popular IMPs in the U.S. 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
- Endorsed by multiple IMP manufacturers
“IMPs deliver energy savings, high R-values and protection against condensation; the SnoBracket protects the IMP investment by securing into only the upper portion of the panel to prevent thermal bridging to the internal structure,” said Rob Haddock, S-5! CEO and Founder. “It is imperative to restrain potentially dangerous accumulated snowpack from avalanching and to maintain your panels’ high insulating values and weather integrity. That’s why we created the SnoBracket.”
Founded by a veteran metal roof expert, S-5! has been the leading 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 U.S.A., S-5! solutions are engineered for a variety of roof-mounted applications and are now installed on more than 2 million metal roofs worldwide, providing strength and longevity never before seen.
