Mounting Attachment Systems or Products Designed to Fix Roof Mounted systems to metal roofing systems. Examples include such as Snow Retention, Photovoltaic Arrays, Signage, Lighting Systems


Snow guard; Snow fence; solar array


Metal Roofing is growing in popularity. Many systems have been or are increasingly designed to attach to metal roofing. Some, like snow retention, are designed to protect individuals and property below the roof, others, such as photovoltaic array mounting, are designed to securely affix the system to the building. In all cases, it is important to both securely attach to the metal roofing while not damaging the functionality of the metal roofing to function over time.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
