S-5! launches clamp for solar electric conduits on metal roofs – pv magazine USA

The CanDuit clamp works with any other S-5! clamp or bracket to secure and support conduit for cable management for PV systems on metal roofs.

S-5!, a manufacturer of metal roof fastening solutions with non-penetrating solutions, has launched a new electrical conduit clamp for metal roofs.

The CanDuit Clamp secures and supports conduit for cable management and secures household circuits – i.e. the electrical cable that carries power from the main circuit breaker panel to the first electrical box, outlet or switch in the circuit, rather than a baseball – to metal roofs for solar PV systems, in combination with any S-5! clamp or support.

The CanDuit is made of electro-galvanized steel, protecting the clamp from potential corrosion, and is available in 14 different sizes for residential and commercial applications. It is designed with two halves that attach around a pipe or conduit with an EPDM liner pad that protects against abrasion and an M8 threaded stud that allows attachment to S-5! products—provide easy, organized attachment without scratching, corroding, or other damage to the roof.

According to S-5! CEO and Founder, Rob Haddock, the product was developed in response to customer needs, like S-5! has apparently been approached several times about solutions for attaching tube-shaped objects to metal roofs. The relationship between photovoltaic systems and metal roofs is one that S-5! knows well and, according to Haddock, the company jumped at the chance to fill an industry need in its area of ​​expertise.

Solar PV Mounting Systems for Standing Seam Roof installations should be mechanically fastened at panel joints only with clamps to maintain the design features and warranties of the roof. Additionally, metal roofs will outlast the life of a solar PV system, so it is essential that the mounting system and all attachments protect and maintain the durability of the roof. The CanDuit adapts to this mold for both of these needs, attaching directly and securely to the seams of the roof, preventing any damage that would be caused by movement over time.
