Why Use the VersaGard System on Your Exposed-Fastened Profile?

With factory-applied, butyl sealant already in the base, the VersaGard bracket offers a long-term service life free from UV degradation, drying and cracking. 

Multiple Applications

VersaGard is named as such because it offers solutions for both snow retention and PV installation on exposed-fastened metal roofs. For PV applications, see VersaGard™ bracket.

Snow Retention: Choose VersaGard if you are searching for a two-pipe, snow guard system on trapezoidal, exposed- fastened metal roofing. Reduce the risks associated with rooftop avalanches and reduce the need for snow removal maintenance. 

Note: When rib height exceeds 1.5,” use VersaGard V for rib heights up to 2.0”. 

VersaGard Snow Guard Benefits:

  • Mounted in the flat of the panel into the supporting structure of the roof (or deck) with tested holding capacity
  • Can be color-finished (anodized or powder-coated) to match the roof
  • Engineer a system for any site-specific roof with the online S-5! Snow Guard Calculator

Be sure to check out the many other benefits on the snow guard overview page.

Pricing Starts at about $3.35 per linear foot of assembly
