DualGard™

STRENGTH AND RELIABILITY

DualGard™ is a comprehensive two-pipe snow retention system designed for those who favor a pipe-style solution, boasting the strength, testing, quality, and time-proven integrity synonymous with S-5!®. DualGard utilizes two S-5!® Mini Clamps for added strength compared to other two-pipe systems.

LEAK-FREE

DualGard is mechanically attached using round-point setscrews, securely gripping the seam without penetration or damage to the panel’s protective finishes when S-5!® clamps are employed.

VERSATILITY

DualGard stands out as the most versatile 1-inch, two-pipe snow retention system for all standing seam roof applications when using S-5!® clamps. All DualGard components are compatible with VersaGard™, VersaGard™ V, and CorruBracket™, providing a comprehensive snow retention solution for trapezoidal and corrugated exposed fastened roofs. It can be installed at any time during the year on almost any metal roof profile.

COMPONENTS

OF THE DualGard™ SYSTEM

DUALGARD BRACKET

DualGard uses two S-5 Mini clamps at each pipe bracket location.

S-5! CLAMP

The appropriate clamp is selected based on the roofing profile and is mechanically attached to the seam using round-point setscrews. This method ensures a secure attachment without causing damage to the roof's protective finishes.

CROSSMEMBER

Crossmembers consist of two 1-inch round pipes that can be spliced for longer runs, providing versatility and adaptability for various roof configurations.

DUALCLIP

DualClipS are optional components that can be added to your S-5! DualGard snow retention system to further slow down the movement of snow, enhancing its effectiveness in retaining snow on your roof.

FINISHING COMPONENTS

End caps installed at both ends of the assembly serve to prevent unwanted debris and pests from entering the pipes, ensuring the system remains clear and functional. Additionally, lock collars are utilized to prevent horizontal migration of the pipes, maintaining stability and integrity.
