Proven Design

Our patented Gator Clamp has a solid grip that is pull tested to THREE times the engineered requirements. Our Gator Clamp held fast during 100+ mph wind loads during a summer storm in St. Louis (August 2020). The aluminum solar panel frame failed before our Gator Clamp would let go!

Alternate Uses

Although Powers Super Purlins and Powers Gator Clamps were designed for use with our Carport and Ground Mount applications, they are also available as stand alone products for use with other structures. We do not provide engineering for these projects, but many of our clients have installed our Super Purlin/Gator Clamp systems on other structures to great success. Projects have included large supermarket parking structures and municipal parking lot roof tops.
