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.
Installation is simple! VersaGard is mounted in the flat of the panel, directly into the supporting structure of the roof, i.e. wood decking, wood or steel purlins, or trusses. No surface preparation is necessary; simply wipe away excess oil and debris, peel the release paper from the base, align, and apply. Secure through the pre-punched holes using the appropriate screws for the supporting structure.
While the circular holes in the vertical part of the bracket support 1" pipes, the diagonal slot provides flexible support for PV installations via the use of 3/8", M8, or M10 bolts.
VersaGard can dramatically reduce the risks associated with snow avalanches sliding off of roofs, dumping tons of snow onto anything in its path, at an amazingly affordable price. A VersaGard pipe snow retention system functions without cluttering the lines of the roof and is dramatically stronger than adhesively-mounted snow guards.
VersaGard brackets can also be used in lieu of an L-foot to support the installation of photovoltaic panels. VersaGard works with most rail or racking systems, and can be oriented parallel or perpendicular to the roof line.
VersaGard is a strong, versatile and affordable exposed-fastened solution for mounting snow retention and solar panels.
Each VersaGard comes with factory-applied butyl sealant in the base. A structural aluminum attachment bracket, VersaGard is compatible with most common metal roofing materials. For design assistance, ask your distributor.
6 holes are provided for versatility. Some installations require only 2 fasteners.
Any loads imposed upon the S-5! clamps will be transferred to the roof panels to which they are attached. Roof panels must be adequately fastened to building structure to resist these loads. For critical installations, contact the roof panel manufacturer for specific test data of ultimate tensile load on specific panel materials and seam types. When relying upon testing load values, setscrew tensions should be verified and factors of safety should be used as appropriate. Always install ATB | S-5! systems in strict accordance with manufacturer’s published installation instructions.
