OMG Roofing Products Introduces the PowerGrip Universal 7

Compatible with All Commercial Roofing Systems

AGAWAM, Mass., April, 2020 - OMG Roofing Products has introduced PowerGrip Universal 7 (PGU-7), a rooftop attachment anchor for mounting solar racking systems and other products to virtually any commercial roof. PGU-7 units are designed to reduce or eliminate the need for ballast in solar racking systems, so there's less weight, material handling and labor on the roof.

Designed with wind performance in mind, PGU-7units offer up to 2,051 lbf. (9.12 kN) of tensile strength, 1,581 lbf. (7.03 kN) of shear strength, and up to 2,214 lbf. (9.84 kN) of compressive load strength, making it one of the strongest roof anchors on the market today.
Made of heavy-duty cast aluminum, PGU-7 units include a base ring that is secured through the roofing assembly and into the structural roof deck, as well as a waterproof cover plate to prevent water from infiltrating the system.
"Commercial rooftop solar has continued to grow at a steady pace," said Kevin Kervick, solar business manager for OMG Roofing Products. "In addition, the prevalence of damaging storms has increased dramatically over the past few years, which has reinforced the market need for stronger roof anchor systems, such as PGU-7s, which are easy-to-install. With our full family of PowerGrip products, OMG Roofing Products can provide appropriate anchors for virtually any rooftop solar installation."
PGU-7 units transfer wind up-lift loads to the structural roof deck for maximum strength and effectiveness. The system does not require any membrane welding, and PGU-7 units are typically installed in less than five minutes, saving both time and labor when compared to alternative options.
In addition to ballast and rail-based solar racking systems, PGU-7s can be used for many other roof mounted items such as pipe supports, step crossovers, raceways, satellite dishes, small antennas and HVAC applications.
Headquartered in Agawam, Massachusetts, U.S.A., OMG Roofing Products is a leading global supplier of commercial roofing products including specialty fasteners, insulation adhesives, engineered edge metal systems, roof drains, solar anchors as well as productivity tools such as RhinoBond. The company's focus is delivering products and services that improve contractor productivity and enhance roof system performance.
