COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — S-5! announced its universal GripperFix™ utility mounting system has earned a spot on retrofit Magazine's Readers' Choice Top 25 Products list.

The eighth-annual Top 25 Products special, which will appear in retrofit’s January-February 2021 issue, celebrates products that received the most reader inquiries from the magazine’s November-December 2019 through September-October 2020 issues.

“We consider retrofit a source book for our readers to find innovative solutions and products for their own retrofit projects,” said Publisher John Riester. “The Top 25 Products special in our January-February issue is a great resource to our readers showcasing the products readers’ peers thought were most interesting within the pages of retrofit.”

S-5!’s universal GripperFix system makes mounting almost anything on standing and exposed-fastener metal roof profiles simple and easy without damaging the roof. Roof-mounted utilities, such as split system condensing units, duct supports, communication equipment and service walkways can support a building envelope or compromise it.

Traditionally, mounting rooftop ancillary items using concrete blocks for ballast damages a roof and provides a temporary fix. S-5!’s GripperFix technology ensures a secure and dependable attachment solution that preserves the integrity of the roof and avoids destructive corrosion.

“This system is quick and simple to install, lasts the life of the roof, maintains roof warranties and is less expensive than other mounting methods,” says Rob Haddock, founder and CEO of S-5! “We are honored to merit a spot on retrofit’s Top 25 Products list, especially given it is a readers’ choice distinction.”
