S-5!® clamps: The S-5!® clamp is by far the most tested, trusted and most versatile clamp on the market today. It fits about 85% of the standing seam profiles manufactured in North America – including most structural and architectural profiles. It can be used on vertically oriented seams and, by rotating the clamp 90 degrees, it can also be used on most horizontal 2″ seam profiles. Its simple design, generous dimensioning and multiple hole orientations are what make the S-5! clamp so versatile for use with the S-5! snow retention products, such as ColorGard®, as well as with other heavy-duty applications.


Colorguard®: ColorGard® snow retention system is manufactured from mill finished high quality aluminum. It comes in 8′ long sections, in punched or unpunched configurations. Splices are included with ColorGard for adjacent sections. For use with S-5!® standard clamps, VersaBracket™ and CorruBracket™.


X-Gard™: 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.


VersaGard™: VersaGard™ is compatible with almost any trapezoidal, exposed-fastened profile. No messy sealants to apply! No chance for leaks! VersaGard™ comes with factory-applied butyl sealant already in the base, and the S-5!® patented reservoir conceals the sealant from UV exposure, preventing drying and cracks.
