Tests have proven the X-Gard™ 2.0, with the amazingly strong NEX® 2.0 pipe, to be the strongest pipe-system on the market used for snow retention for metal roofs. It is our two-pipe system spanning up to 48″ seams. S-5 carries an extensive selection of snow guard systems. Once you find the equipment you need we work with trusted distributors in your area to get it to you quickly and efficiently.
Why Snow Retention?
When snow accumulations begin to melt, the result can be catastrophic as the blanket of snow avalanches off the roof dumping tons of snow onto anything in its path. It can damage gutters, landscape, adjacent roofs, vehicles and cause injury or death to passers-by. X-Gard 2.0 pipe retention systems dramatically reduce these risks associated with rooftop avalanches, maintaining the clean lines of the roof! X-Gard can be designed and engineered on a site-specific basis, and lasts as long as the roof itself.
Why use the S-5!® X-Gard?
X-Gard is the newest innovation in snow retention for metal roofs from S-5!. No other pipe snow retention system on the market has proven stronger than X-Gard.
The innovative double-clamp design allows X-Gard to provide unprecedented holding strength when attached with S-5!’s standard clamps. The employment of two clamps with each bracket and the unique shape of the NEX® 2.0 pipe enable a properly installed X-Gard system to provide a reliable snow retention solution in a wide variety of situations.
X-Gard 2.0 is mechanically attached with round-point setscrews, gripping the seam securely without penetration and without damage to the panel’s protective finishes.
This new S-5 snow guard system can be easily retrofitted to existing roofs or incorporated into new construction design. It can be installed any time during the year on almost any metal roof profile.
