PowerGrip Universal 11
PowerGrip™ Universal 11 (PGU-11) is one of the strongest anchors available for securing solar racks and other equipment to any type of commercial roofing system. PGU-11s provide a secure connection directly to the roof deck or structural members and are designed to reduce or eliminate ballast, so there’s less weight on the roof and less material handling.
Features & Benefits
- PowerGrip Universal 11 is compatible with every type of commercial roofing, and can be used on mechanically attached, fully adhered and ballasted roof systems.
- Helps protect roof covers from damage due to ballasted rack movement.
- Each PowerGrip Universal 11 can accommodate up to 2,700 lbs. (12.2 kN) of downward load.
The PowerGrip Universal 11 is a roof mount system for securing solar racking systems onto commercial roofs. As such, PGU-11s 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-11s are installed with a minimum of six fasteners but can accommodate up to 12 fasteners depending on the specific deck type and application. 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.
