VersaGard is a metal roof bracket used for both PV installation and snow retention on exposed-fastened metal roofs. For snow applications, see VersaGard™ snow guard system.
Mounting Solar PV With VersaGard
VersaGard functions as an L-Foot and mounting base in one component for PV rail mounting. The bracket is specifically designed with a factory-applied, butyl sealant offering a long-term service life, free from UV degradation, drying and cracking. No unreliable, field-applied caulking is needed.
Used with side-bolted rail systems, VersaGard can be installed either parallel or perpendicular to slope for portrait or landscape module orientation.
The diagonal slot design of the bracket makes 1.75” (45 mm) of height adjustability a snap. Bolts and nuts are offered separately with common bolt sizes.
Wire management holes are also provided. The circular holes in the vertical part of the bracket support up to 1” (25 mm) conduit.
If you want to use the rail manufacturer’s L-Foot instead, see S-5! SolarFoot.
