SolarFoot™ from S-5! is a simple, cost-effective pedestal for L-Foot (not included) attachment of rail-mounted solar PV. This mounting platform is made for exposed fastener metal roofing with four points of attachment. It is The Right Way to secure rail-mounted solar systems to exposed fastener metal such as AG-Panel or R-Panel.
SolarFoot provides a mounting platform to attach the L-Foot of a rail-mounted solar system or other ancillaries to the roof. The design is compatible with all rail producer L-Foot components.
SolarFoot ensures a durable weathertight solution for the life of the solar system and the roof. Each piece contains two reservoirs of a factory-applied butyl co-polymeric sealant, allowing a water-tested seal. Simply peel the release paper from the butyl sealant and fasten through the predrilled holes in the base of the SolarFoot. Stainless integrated stud and hex flange locknuts secure the L-Foot into position. A low center of gravity reduces the moment arm commonly associated with L-Foot attachments. Direct attachment of the SolarFoot to the structural member or deck provides unparalleled holding strength.
S-5! zero-penetration clamps attach ancillary items to standing seam metal roofs without violating the integrity of the roof or the roof’s warranties. The clamps mount snow-retention and wind-performance systems, solar arrays, signs/banners, light fixtures, gas piping, stack/flue bracing, walkways, HVAC, lightning protection, equipment screens, conduit, condensate lines, and more.
The SolarFoot should be placed in the flat of the panel, between the ribs. It is designed to straddle striations or minor stiffening ribs when necessary. The SolarFoot must be mounted directly over and into the supporting structure of the roof (i.e., wood decking, wood or steel purlins, or trusses) and never into the metal roofing material alone. Fastener selection will depend on whether the supporting structure of the roof is metal or wood.
Manufactured in the U.S. from certified raw material, the SolarFoot mounting platform is fabricated in an ISO 9001:2015 certified factory. All aluminum and stainless components have a 25 year limited warranty.
