Offered in aluminum or brass, our snow rails are designed to manage snow migration on standing seam metal roofing. Their clean lines, cylindrical shapes and high-tech appearance make these snow guards rail systems the favorite choice of architects and roof designers. Installing snow guards helps prevent the chance of accumulated snow on your roofing material causing a dangerous roof avalanche.
When snow accumulations begin to melt, the result can be catastrophic if a heavy snow avalanche occurs off the roof dumping tons of snow onto anything in its path. It can damage landscape, gutters, adjacent roofs, vehicles and cause injury or death to passers-by. Roof snow guards dramatically reduce these risks associated with rooftop avalanches, maintaining the clean lines of the roof surface and lasting as long as the metal roof itself! SnoRail can be designed and engineered on a site-specific basis.
Architects and roof designers agree: The clean lines, cylindrical shapes and high-tech look of our roof snow guards present an attractive solution to snow retention problems! They function without cluttering the lines of the roof.
With up to six times the strength of adhesively-mounted devices, and without the high labor costs and inconsistencies of soldered snow guards, S-5!® offers the perfect, long term, dependable solution for traditional standing seam and sheet copper roofing.
The metal roof snow guard system is mechanically attached with S-5-ASF and S-5-BSF aluminum or brass clamps utilizing our round-point setscrews—designed not to “pin” or “fix” the roof panels to the building, leaving thermal movement unrestricted. The snow rail clamps are precision-machined from aircraft quality materials, not cast or plastic. All related hardware is non-ferrous, compatible stainless steel or brass for lasting performance.
ColorGard is the only snow retention system good enough to be warranted for the life of the roof. Unlike other snow guards that yellow and fail over time, ColorGard’s unsurpassed holding strength controls snow migration with a perfect color-match that lasts the life of the roof.
X-Gard 1.0 is our two-pipe system spanning up to 48″ seams. Like our one-pipe system, X-Gard has greater holding strength, better aesthetics, and longer service life than any other engineered pipe system on the market.
X-Gard 2.0 is our two-pipe system spanning up to 48″ seams. Like our one-pipe system, X-Gard has greater holding strength, better aesthetics, and longer service life than any other engineered pipe system on the market.
Our SnoRail utilizes one Sno-Rod™ positioned just above the panel seams for maximum strength and minimal clutter.
S-5!’s SnoFence uses a SnoPost™ to accommodate a second SnoRod™ two inches above the first. Both SnoRail and snow fence systems are available in brass for use on copper batten or standing seam roofs and in aluminum for other standing seam roofing materials.
DualGard™ is the most versatile and reliable 1-inch, two-pipe snow retention system on the market for all standing seam roof applications. DualGard utilizes two patented S-5! mini clamps for extra strength versus other two-pipe systems. All DualGard components can be used with VersaGard™ and VersaGard™ V, offering a complete snow retention system for exposed fasten roofs.
VersaGard is compatible with almost any trapezoidal, exposed-fastened profile. No messy sealants to apply! No chance for leaks! VersaGard comes with factory-applied butyl sealant already in the base, and the S-5! patented reservoir conceals the sealant from UV exposure, preventing drying and cracks.
