This S-5 Snow Guard system is a versatile and durable choice.  See our full selection of metal roof snow guards & snow stops.


DualGard Two-Pipe System

Versatility, reliability and strength in one system. DualGard™ is a complete, two-pipe snow retention system created for those who prefer a pipe-style snow retention system with the strength, testing, quality and time-proven integrity you expect from S-5!. DualGard can also be color-finished to match the roof. The system utilizes two anchor points per bracket, and can be engineered for structural adequacy online with our new DualGard calculator and backed by independent lab testing. DualGard is the most versatile and reliable pipe system on the market. And, in the S-5! tradition, also the lowest cost.

DualGard: Effective Snow Retention

When snow accumulations begin to melt, the result can be incredibly damaging as a heavy blanket of snow drops off of the roof. DualGard gives you a reliable solution. Incorporating independently A2LA-certified laboratory-tested S-5! Mini clamps and the online calculator, you can be assured that DualGard will hold up to the challenge.

As with S-5! ColorGard®, SnoRail™/ SnoFence™ and X-Gard™, the DualGard snow retention system provides superior, documented holding strength when compared to individual cleats, adhered plastic parts and other snow retention systems. When other brands claim to be “just as good as S-5!”, tell them to PROVE IT.

Snow Retention Systems are VITAL SAFETY EQUIPMENT

When designed and installed correctly, snow retention systems are used to protect property and individuals. That’s why all S-5! clamps and snow retention systems are thoroughly tested and certified by an independent third party lab.
