Building Research Systems Inc. has been awarded two new patents from the United States Patent and Trademark Office intended to improve the performance of standing seam roofs.

These new patents allow us to expand on our current portfolio, which now includes patents covering roof clips, seams, roofing systems and accessories. BRS now holds 11 patents; we find it critical to continue research and development for our systems and keep our products proprietary, which will in turn increase the value to our licensees.

Patent No. 9,003,733, invented by our owner Leo Neyer, is a standing seam strengthening apparatus that is incorporated into clips that are configured to connect a standing seam to an underlying support structure. The issuance of this patent provides additional patent protection for clips (including the new BRS wind clips) and seams.

Patent No. 8,977,410 was designed by Richard Starks, Jr., PE, BRS Product Development Manager and Trey Herren, BRS Vice President, and covers the BRS Module Clamp. The Module Clamp holds the clip and the panel leading edge on module until the clip fasteners are installed. This process allows the panels to maintain their original design and shape. The BRS Module Clamp can also be used to assist in seaming a roof that has been installed out of module.

Both patented products are available through Logan Stampings, Inc. BRS Licensees have access to all products that are protected by BRS’s patents. Contact BRS today, we can provide spec sheets and samples of these products. If you would like more information please contact us at or visit
