DualGard™ snow guard system gets “Top Product”

The S-5! DualGard Snow Retention System recently gained national recognition from Building Design + Construction (BD+C) Magazine as a “Top Product” for 2017 in the Building Envelope Category.

DualGard snow stop system

The DualGard snow retention system from S-5! uses an assembly of two one-inch pipes to keep snow and ice in place while it melts, while also preserving the warranty of the metal roof. DualGard can be painted, powder coated, or anodized, and can be fully engineered for the specific roof and environment. The system is mounted with S-5! mini clamps and comes with two sizes of snow clips to fit any seam profile. DualGard effectively protects people and property from dangerous roof snow avalanches. It joins S-5!’s other snow retention systems: ColorGard, X-Gard, SnoRail, and SnoFence.


The DualGard system launched just a year ago, has become a popular choice by design professionals and contractors who prefer the looks of a pipe-style snow retention system while desiring the benefits they have come to expect from S-5!.  Like the other S-5! snow retention systems, DualGard features a 25-year manufacturer’s warranty and is fully tested on virtually every metal roof manufacturer profile and material allowing for a fully engineered system that will last the life of the roof. DualGard can also be calculated on S-5!’s web-based online calculator which can be accessed at: https://s-5.com/calculator/
