Sign Mount Clamps
One of the more versatile uses of the Universal® Clamp is mounting signs to standing metal seam roofs and buildings. Because the clamp features multiple mounting options, many different types of signs and sign mounting systems can be attached using the Universal® Clamp. Sign posts and legs can attach to the top or side of the Universal® Clamp through threaded bolts, custom mounting holes can also be added to accommodate custom sign mounts.
The Universal® Clamp provides high holding force on standing seams, which aids in holding large signs that withstand higher wind forces when located on roof tops. Universal® Clamps can also be used to mount signs to the side of a structure because of its ability to attach to vertical walls.
Universal® PV Sign Mount Clamps can be shipped directly to any location. Pre-assembled Universal® Sign Mount Clamps can be shipped pre-assembled, meaning all hardware (ie: set-screws and mounting fasteners) come installed in the clamp body. The sign mount clamps can also be shipped disassembled with all the hardware sent in separately labeled bags to assure all parts are accounted for.
Universal® Sign Mount Clamps are designed and constructed using the highest quality aluminum and Stainless Steel co
mponents. Because of these features the Universal® Clamp will not rust, deform, or break down when exposed to the elements of any environment.
Universal® Sign Mount Clamps are available in two different standard sizes: 2″ in long or 1″ long, XS version. The XS clamp is the perfect solution when mounting lightweight items. The Universal® Sign Mount Clamp can also be engineered to any meet any custom length requirements.
The Universal® Clamp features innovative hammers on one or both sides of the clamp. There are currently four standard hammer types to accommodate various standing seams: standard style, round style, thin style, and L-shaped. The Universal® Clamp hammers area can also be custom engineered to fit non-standard standing seams.
The only tool required to install a Universal® Sign Mount Clamp is a 3/16″ Allen wrench. The clamp is placed onto the standing seam surface at the desired attachment point, and then the set-screws are tightened or loosened on each side to accurately rotate the hammers, this action applies an evenly distributed clamping force to the standing seam. It is recommended that 16-20 ft/lb of torque be applied to the set-screws to achieve maximum holding force. Universal® Clamps feature rotating hammers which prevent the set screws from ever coming into contact with the seam of the roof, preventing holes and other damage form or wear on the roof.
