TS-324 Extended Standoff Clippdf 1,664.22 KB 18 admin 10/21/19, 9:58 AM Download
With the increase awareness on energy code requirements BRS knew we needed to design a taller clip allowing for thicker insulation. The standard MPS clip will now be available in 3 additional height standoffs, 2", 2 ½" and 3". The increased height will allow for more insulation (up to 18" when using the 3" stand-off clip), increasing the R value and thermal performance of the roof system.
The new taller clips can also be used for retrofit jobs over screw down roof panels, allowing licensees access to a new marketplace with a more economical method than other retrofit solutions. The taller clip is installed the same way as the standard clip that everyone is already familiar with; and is available from Logan Stamping with all other metal roof clips and accessories.
• Designed to allow for increased insulation thickness
• Full length reinforced side shelves to help prevent buckling
• Small stiffening ridges to strengthen tab
• Same uplift performance as standard BRS clips
• Can be used for retrofit
Considering BRS’s investment requirements for new tooling, testing, research and development, the cost of the clip will be amortized over time based on the volume of clips produced.
As always, keeping roof panel modularity is extremely important. The increased height of the taller clip can cause concern regarding consistent modularity. This is why BRS recommends the use of our module clamp, alignment bar and new t-bar system. Using this Modular Kit helps prevent the panels from rolling and can keep or bring back the roof to proper module spacing.
These clips were tested to verify their performance was no different than our standard existing clip. An ASTM 1592 test confirmed that the increased height did not hinder uplift performance. Our standard uplift values can be used for the new taller clip.
