The metal roof attachment experts at S-5! expanded their line of RibBrackets for mounting solar panels, covering a variety of trapezoidal rib metal roofs. The RibBracket V is a sheeting-only solar attachment that can be placed anywhere along the roof’s ribs and is designed specifically for Ternium TR 72, TR 101 (R-72 and R-101) and similar roof profiles commonly found in North and Latin America. With flex-to-fit legs, the design of the bracket ensures proper fit and places the fasteners in shear rather than pull-out, providing a substantially stronger attachment.
Dimensions: Its compatible top rib dimension range is .75 inch +/- to 1 inch (19 mm to 25 mm), and its elevated profile provides 4 inches (100 mm) of air space above the rib to maximize air flow under the solar panels and a large channel for wire management.
“RibBracket V provides a secure, dependable and economical solution that is quick and easy to install,” says S-5! CEO & Founder Rob Haddock. “Our S-5! Research & Development team spent months in concept and prototyping to come up with another versatile, cost-effective and state-of-the art solar mounting addition to our RibBracket line.”
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.
