OMG Roofing Products' PowerGrip Universal 7
OMG Roofing Products has introduced PowerGrip Universal 7 (PGU-7), a rooftop attachment anchor for mounting solar racking systems and other products to virtually any commercial roof. PGU-7 units are designed to reduce or eliminate the need for ballast in solar racking systems, so there’s less weight, material handling and labor on the roof.
Designed with wind performance in mind, PGU-7units offer up to 2,051 lbf. (9.12 kN) of tensile strength, 1,581 lbf. (7.03 kN) of shear strength, and up to 2,214 lbf. (9.84 kN) of compressive load strength, making it one of the strongest roof anchors on the market today.
Made of heavy-duty cast aluminum, PGU-7 units include a base ring that is secured through the roofing assembly and into the structural roof deck, as well as a waterproof cover plate to prevent water from infiltrating the system.
PGU-7 units transfer wind up-lift loads to the structural roof deck for maximum strength and effectiveness. The system does not require any membrane welding, and PGU-7 units are typically installed in less than five minutes, saving both time and labor when compared to alternative options.
In addition to ballast and rail-based solar racking systems, PGU-7s can be used for many other roof mounted items such as pipe supports, step crossovers, raceways, satellite dishes, small antennas and HVAC applications.
