AceClamp designs have been vibration tested during the development stage and incorporate special locking features to ensure that the bolts do not back out when subjected to vibratory loads from wind flutter and light seismic activity. Booth 809. OMG Roofing Products has introduced PowerGrip Universal (middle) for mounting solar racking systems on commercial roofs. PowerGrip Universal is designed to reduce or eliminate ballast in solar racking systems, so there's less weight, material handling and labor on the roof. Made of heavy-duty cast aluminum, PowerGrip Universal offers 3,300 lbf of tensile strength, 2,500 lbf of shear strength and 2,000 lbf of compressive strength. It's one of the strongest anchors on the market. Booth 629. The Standing Seam Power Clamp from Solar Connections (bottom) can attach to virtually any stand - ing seam profile and draws its strength from patent-pend- ing WaveLock Technology with optional two, three and f ive points of attachment.

Offering ease of installation, the Silver Bullet set screws include a rounded bullet tip to maximize strength while also keeping the paint f inish and seam free from harm. Additionally, the Standing Seam Power Clamp is available in standard mill finish aluminum material, making it an item you can easi - ly keep in stock when the need arises. Booth 1569.
