AGAWAM, Mass. — OMG Roofing Products has introduced the PowerGrip Plus roof mount system, a watertight structural attachment system used to secure solar racks, HVAC, and other equipment to roofs covered with thermoplastic (TPO and PVC) membranes. PowerGrip Plus is designed with wind performance in mind and offers ultimate tensile strength of 2,000 lbf and ultimate shear strength of 1,075 lbf. Properly installed PowerGrip Plus units reduce movement and remain watertight.

According to the company, PowerGrip Plus units are easy to install, saving both time and labor when compared to alternative options. A wide membrane skirt promotes easy welding in place, and the 1 5/8 inch diameter by ½ inch tall mount provides a perch for securing brackets or struts. The exposed 1 inch tall by 3/8 inch diameter bolt and mounting stand are made from corrosion-resistant stainless steel and aluminum alloy for long-term performance.

In addition to solar racks and HVAC equipment, PowerGrip Plus can be used for other roof mounted items such as pipe supports, step crossovers, raceways, and more.

More information on the roof mount system is available here.
