SNOW RETENTION APPLICATIONS
VersaGard can dramatically reduce the risks associated with snow avalanches sliding off of roofs, dumping tons of snow onto anything in its path, at an amazingly affordable price. A VersaGard pipe snow retention system functions without cluttering the lines of the roof and is dramatically stronger than adhesively‑mounted snow guards.
VersaGard can also be used in lieu of an L‑foot to support the installation of photovoltaic panels. VersaGard works with most rail or racking systems, and can be oriented parallel or perpendicular to the roof line.
To accommodate various rib heights and to support one‑ or two‑pipe preferences, VersaGard™ comes with two 1.05″ holes (1″ pipe not included). To support PV installation, the diagonal “slot” provides height flexibility.
VersaGard can be installed parallel (for snow retention or PV installations) or perpendicular to the rib (for PV installations).
Each VersaGard comes with factory‑applied butyl sealant in the base. A structural aluminum attachment bracket, VersaGard is compatible with most common metal roofing materials. For design assistance, ask your distributor. Also, please visit our website for more information including CAD details, metallurgical compatibilities, and specifications.
The VersaGard has been tested for load‑to‑failure results on wood decking, metal, and wood purlins. The independent lab test data found at www.S-5.com can be used for load‑critical designs and applications. S‑5!® holding strength is unmatched in the industry.
