(Colorado Springs, Colorado, – September 21, 2021) S-5!, the leading authority on metal roof fastening solutions, is presenting several sessions at METALCON in Tampa from October 6-8, giving attendees the opportunity to use credits for permanent to earn education.
Solar energy is a fast-growing energy sector in the US and worldwide. This increased focus on energy efficiency and sustainability has drawn attention to the combination of solar energy and metal roofing. Business owners, designers, contractors, EPCs, solar developers and installers who want to learn more about the benefits of solar and metal roofing can attend several educational sessions at the new Solar Education Center sponsored by S-5!
One of the panel presentations presented, Metal Takes on Solar – A Metal Roofers Perspective on Solar Installations, (moderated by LeeAnn Slattery, sales support manager of ATAS International and market development president for the Metal Construction Association (MCA)), is based on a newly released MCA report, Metal Roofing & Solar PV Systems and will take place on October 7.
Founder and CEO of S-5!, Rob Haddock, presents the basics of understanding metal roofing: Parts I and II on October 6 and 7, every day at 8:30 am. Often billed as “Metal Roofing 101” and known as the best “crash course” available to all personnel in the industry, it contains technical information presented in a common sense and explains the art and science of metal roofing clearly, concisely and makes understandable. Contractors, vendors, architects, specifiers, roofing consultants, engineers, building owners and maintenance personnel will all benefit from their presence.
Attendees are invited to visit S-5!’s booth #527 to see first-hand the award-winning WindClamp2X™, designed to increase the wind resistance of standing seam metal roofs. These small aluminum clamps are placed over the seam of the roof at regular intervals to prevent multiple failure modes and provide a cost effective solution to increase wind resistance up to three times. The S-5 team! will be present to explain the features and benefits of this technology.
And don’t forget to sign up for the Solar Trivia Games. Moderated by S-5!’s solar expert, Mark Gies, teams of three to five people can pre-register or join a team on the first morning of games. The winning team from Days 1 and 2 of each day will win prizes before competing for the top prize on the last day.
“We are very excited to be so actively involved with METALCON this year,” said Haddock. “This is the place to be if you’re in the industry, and we’re honored that our new WindClamp™ has been named the winner of the METALCON Top Product Award.”
