S-5!, the original inventor of engineered, manufactured, metal roof attachments, has signed up Dubai-based Total Safety Solutions (TSS) as the authorized distributor for its complete range of S-5! mounting solutions throughout the Middle East and North Africa (Mena) region.
Founded by industry veteran, S-5! has been the leading authority on metal roof attachment solutions since 1992. Its zero-penetration clamps and lifetime brackets attach ancillary items to standing seam and exposed-fastened metal roofs respectively, while maintaining roof integrity and warranties.
Made in the US, S-5! solutions are engineered for a variety of roof-mounted applications and are now installed on more than 2.5 million metal roofs worldwide including 6 GW of solar PV, providing strength and longevity never before seen, it stated.
"S-5! offers a variety of clamps and brackets for all of our needs. And with the ongoing growth of solar in the marketplace, we will be able to meet the demand by adding S-5! solar mounting solutions to our offerings,"  said Vipin Gupta, Director at TSS. 
"We intend to develop our operations as a regional logistics center for S-5! products to all our channel partners," he added.
According to Gupta, TSS has served as the leading provider of fall protection solutions in the Mena region for more than 20 years. 
The company manufactures and supplies safety solutions for metal roof structures, including fall arrest systems, service walkways, skylight protection, guardrails, cross-over bridges, and other roof top accesses such as solar and maintenance contractors, he stated.
S-5! Founder and CEO Rob Haddock expressed delight at the TSS partnership and for the opportunity to expand its distribution network throughout the UAE. 
"Like S-5!, they are an innovation company always evolving to meet the needs of its customers. We welcome them on board and look forward to their continued success and growth," he noted.
"S-5! is focused on expanding its international market, promoting the installation of rail-less solar mounting for metal roofing through its American-made PVKIT direct-fixing solution and new local channel partners," explained Haddock.
A proven technology, S-5! uses only certified materials, certified testing and certified manufacturing produced in its own ISO certified US factory and warrants their products for the life of the roof, he said.

The prominent ones are Emirates National Bank Dubai; Expo 2020 Mobility Pavilion; Abu Dhabi National Oil Company headquarters tower and King Abdullah University of Science and Technology as well as multiple residences under the Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research and Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Center," he stated.
