COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — S-5!, a leading authority on metal roof attachment solutions, presents a number of education sessions at METALCON in Indianapolis, providing opportunities for attendees to earn continuing education credits. 

On Oct. 12, the featured co-presentation, "The Total Solar Solution" ― by Shelly Higgins, S-5! architectural and national accounts director, and Christian Vachon, ATAS International’s director of solar technology ― covers the benefits of metal building construction incorporating roof-mounted solar panels and solar air-heating wall panels.

S-5!’s Founder and Director of the Metal Roof Advisory Group, Rob Haddock, presents the fundamentals of "Understanding Metal Roofing: Parts I and II" on Oct. 12 and Oct. 13 beginning at 8:30 a.m. each day. Often billed as "Metal Roofing 101" and known as the best “crash course” available for all in-industry personnel, it includes technical information presented in a common-sense fashion that makes the art and science of metal roofing clear, concise and understandable. Contractors, salespeople, architects, specifiers, roof consultants, engineers, building owners and maintenance staff will all benefit from attending. 

Then, on Oct. 13, Dustin Haddock, S-5! vice president of research and development, presents "Solar in High Wind & Snow Country: Design Considerations" at 11:30 a.m., and Mark Gies, S-5! director of solar business, presents "The ROI of Installing Solar PV on Metal Roofing" at 2:30 p.m. Both sessions take place in the Sustainability Learning Center.

Attendees are invited to stop by S-5!’s booth #419 to see first-hand its new CanDuit™ Clamp, which secures and support gas piping, condensate lines, electrical conduit and other round-shape objects to metal roofs, in combination with any S-5! clamp or bracket, including the GripperFix® utility mounting system. S-5!’s team will be on-hand to explain the features and benefits of this technology.

“Indianapolis is a great hub for the metal construction and manufacturing industries,” says Rob Haddock. “Where else can you meet industry colleagues all in one place!”
