The S-5! PVKIT™ 2.0 provides a rail-less, direct-attach solution for mounting solar panels directly onto S-5!’s clamps and brackets for any metal roof profile, offering flexibility in module layout and placement.
Featuring just three components compared to most rail systems requiring up to 10, the PVKIT considerably reduces installation time and cost for PV mounting, eliminating the need for an elaborate rail system because the roof’s ribs, corrugations or seams can carry loads just as rails. A single tool drives the top bolt, eliminating several installation steps.
The PVKIT provides better load distribution into the roof and substructure. S-5! mountings result in a reduced mounting system weight by 80-85%–roughly 1.5kg/kWp compared with 8-10 kg/kWp for a railed mounting structure, not to mention 25% more uniform wind and dead load distribution.
The reduced weight further saves shipping costs, improves job site logistics and eliminates the hassles of traditional rail mounting.
