Each standing seam clamp can achieve a minimum of 1.8kN uplift resistance, which means that fewer clamps are needed overall within your project compared to similar clamps on the market.
Like the name suggests, this system clamps around the seam. The bolt, which tightens the clamp into position, is located above the actual seam, so it provides a secure connection without piercing it.
We’ve designed our standing seam clamp to be installed quickly but still offer a strong and secure connection to the roof profile. We use our mounting rails to help strengthen the system and allow the weight of the solar panels to be distributed across a larger roof surface, so it doesn’t damage the existing roof.
We take care within our designs to offset the clamps from each other to help distribute the pressure of the system evenly across the roof and make sure there isn’t too much weight on a single seam.
Each type of mounting rail that we offer has a different spanning capability according to its size and profile. We use this information in conjunction with other calculations to specify the most suitable mounting rail profile from our collection. This means that we optimise the distance between the clamps, which in turn, saves you on material and also installation time.
We’re fully in support of the MCS 012 certification requirement on pitched roof mounting systems, which came into force in 2014 and since then, we’ve followed every significant step to comply and give substance to the scheme.
Quite often solar panels need to be angled steeper than the existing roof can allow, whether this is for a better yield generation or to meet with planning requirements. Since we manufacture all the elevation frames in the UK, we can tailor them to any height or angle specification you require.
