The new VersaBracket-47, by S-5! is a stronger, more versatile and lower cost bracket option to easily mount virtually anything to a face-fastened metal roof profile.
Dustin Haddock, manager of product and system development at S-5!, conducted extensive load testing research during development and tested the VersaBracket-47 load strength to 1,283 pounds ultimate, an increase of 863 pounds over previous solutions when tested on standard 16-gauge purlins. Haddock added, “The great value in the VersaBracket-47 is its impressive holding strength. This makes it a much more cost effective solution because you simply don’t need to install as many to withstand design loads.”
The VersaBracket-47 can also be ordered with custom attachment holes for specific applications. The patent-protected, encapsulated butyl sealant design also provides absolutely the safest way to make a penetration on a face-fastened metal roof – virtually eliminating the possibility of leaks and corrosion.
VersaBracket-47 is so strong it easily supports heavy-duty applications like snow retention and solar panel installations. For face-fastened profiles, the VersaBracket-47 is the perfect match for the S-5! patented ColorGard snow retention system and PV Kits.
The VersaBracket-47TM was scheduled to begin delivery in early June 2009.
