X-Gard is the newest snow retention innovation from S-5!®
It 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 or even mini-sized clamps. The employment of two clamps with each bracket 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 our S-5! 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.
X-Gard can be purchased as a one or two-pipe system, using mini or standard S-5! clamps, depending on project specifics including pitch and snow load.
The single and double-pipe options are paired with a locally-purchased round pipe, or, with our patented NEX® 2.0 Pipe.

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.
