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, damaging landscape, gutters, adjacent roofs, vehicles, and causing injury or even death to passers-by.
X-Gard is the newest snow retention solution from S-5! and can be designed as a one- or two-pipe system spanning up to 48". 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 enables a properly installed X-Gard system to provide a reliable snow retention solution in a wide variety of situations.
X-Gard is mechanically attached with patented round-point setscrews, gripping the seam securely without penetration and without damage to the panel’s protective finishes.
This new snow retention solution 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.
