PowerGrip Universal 7

PowerGrip Universal 7 (PGU-7) is a smaller version of our PGU-11 roof anchor.  PGU-7s provide a secure, watertight connection directly to the roof deck and are designed to reduce or eliminate ballast, so there’s less weight on the roof and less material handling.

Product Use

Product Use

The PowerGrip Universal 7 is a roof mount system for securing solar racking systems onto commercial roofs. As such, PGU-7s can eliminate some or all of the ballast that would otherwise be used. Always check with the roof system manufacturer for installation criteria and written acceptance of the intended application prior to installation. Failure to do so could void the roof warranty. For structural applications, always consult a structural engineer for installation criteria prior to application.

PGU-7s are installed with four fasteners. Based on the specific deck type and roofing application, OMG Roofing Products offers several fastener options: OMG XHD® Roofing Fastener (#15), OMG RetroDriller Fastener and OMG HD Roofing Fastener (#14).

In addition to solar racking systems, PowerGrip Universal products can also be used for many other roof-mounted applications, including pipe supports and hangers, step crossovers, electrical conduit, raceways, satellite dishes, small antennas and HVAC applications, among others.
