S-5! has a new electrical conduit clamp for metal roofs cleverly called the CanDuit. This clamp secures and supports conduit for wire management and fastens home runs to metal roofs for solar PV systems, in combination with any S-5! clamp or bracket. Check it out, and more, in our 2022 Solar eBOS Buyer’s Guide.

Bifacial modules capture more power, resulting in increased solar energy yield. OMCOSolar’s Origin Bifacial Tracker is optimized for bifacial modules for up to 20% more back side production. Learn more here
Made from electro-zinc coated steel, the CanDuit clamp features two halves that clamp around the pipe or conduit with an EPDM liner pad that protects against abrasion and a threaded M8 stud that allows for attachment to S-5! products. The CanDuit can be used in both residential and commercial settings for a range of applications including electrical, solar, plumbing for gas or water and condensate drainage.
“Our customers repeatedly ask, do you have anything to mount electrical conduit, pipes and other round-shaped objects to metal roofs,” says S-5! CEO and Founder, Rob Haddock.
The CanDuit is available in 14 sizes with outer pipe diameters ranging from .79″ (20 mm) to 4.6” (117 mm). Adjustability within each clamp enables minor size adjustment to secure most conduit and other piping. The CanDuit’s M8 threaded shaft mounts directly to S-5!’s non-penetrating clamps for standing seam roofs and factory weatherproofed brackets for exposed-fastened roofs and the S-5! GripperFix utility mounting system.
The CanDuit comes with a 10-year warranty against manufactured defect.
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
