When it comes to attaching various fixtures to standing seam roofs,  RoofClamp RCT emerges as the unparalleled solution, setting new benchmarks in efficiency, strength, and versatility. As the big brother of the  RoofClamp RC, the RCT Clamp is crafted from high-grade 6061-T6 aluminum, featuring an advanced design concept and all stainless steel hardware, making it the epitome of durability.  Take a look at the differences between the RoofClamp RC and RCT with this short explainer video.   

The Ingenious Design Concept: Fits 95% of Today’s Standing Seam Profiles

At the heart of the RoofClamp RCT lies an advanced design concept – a patented one-piece body that effortlessly conforms to over 95% of today's standing seam profiles. Light, strong, and boasting the most universal fit in the industry, the RCT Clamp eliminates the need for stocking multiple clamp shapes. Why stock multiple clamp models when the RoofClamp RCT fits nearly every standing seam in the field?

Top-Notch Construction: Strength You Can Trust

Made from premium 6061-T6 aluminum and equipped with all stainless steel hardware, the  RoofClamp RCT ensures superior strength for both parallel and perpendicular loading. The innovative 3-point attachment system sets a new benchmark for reliability in the industry, providing confidence in every application.

Versatile Application: The Perfect Companion for Your Standing Seam Roof

Whether you're in the business of installing solar panels, walkways, signage, or various other fixtures, the RoofClamp RCT is the ideal companion. Its 1"W x 1 3/8"H interior dimensions, combined with a .5"H x 1.5"W seam channel, offer a secure and adaptable fit for a diverse range of roof-mounted items. Kits are available for  satellite dish mounting that include RCT clamps. There are also kits for mounting aluminum plates used for  securing Ventsavers for protecting exhaust pipes from ice and snow damage. RoofClamp RCT are perfectly suited to be used in conjunction with Unistrut and similar brand rails for solar racking, HVAC unit mounting, and just about anything else you could imagine!

The RoofClamp RCT installs in about one minute with the proper tools to set the torque.  We recommend using the 1/4" drive micro torque wrench kit for proper set screw attachment.

Industry's Most Universal Fit: Compatibility Beyond Compare

With compatibility exceeding 95% of standing seam profiles, RoofClamp RCT stands as the industry's most universal fit roof clamp system. No longer worry about compatibility issues – choose the RoofClamp RCT for a seamless and reliable solution that adapts to various roofing systems effortlessly.

Patented Excellence: A Guarantee of Cutting-Edge Solutions

Holding a patent with the US Patent Number D629,679, the RoofClamp RCT assures you're investing in cutting-edge technology for your roofing needs. The commitment to innovation is evident in every detail of the clamp's design.

Safety First: A Clear Directive

While RoofClamp RCT excels in secure attachments, it is imperative to note that it not tested or intended for use in fall protection. For standing seam fall protection, we recommend the Standing Seam Roof Anchor SSRA1. This anchor point is designed specifically for fall protection anchorage on standing seam roofs. It is fabricated from the same patented aluminum extrusion but is a larger and stronger device designed to exceed OSHA and ASNI requirements.
