S-5! ColorGard®

ColorGard® is the snow guard system which perfectly matches with the colour of almost each metal roof. This is done by the insertion of a strip of roof material into the 3m ColorGard®-rail thus avoiding expensive costs for coating when the snow guard shall be coordinated with the colour of the roof. ColorGard is mechanically attached with S-5!® clamps (with 2 setscrews).

Apart from oprtical there are technical aspects speaking for ColorGard®. Mounted on S-5!™ Clamps it can support higher loads than other standard snow retetion. In many cases you will need less clamps or rows with ColorGard®. S-5! is the trusted name in metal rooftop attachment technology worldwide. S-5!’s round-point setscrews grip the seam securely without penetration and without damage to the panel’s protective finishes. The clamps are precision-machined from aircraft quality, high tensile aluminum—not cast or plastic. All related hardware is non-ferrous stainless steel for lasting performance.

The S-5! ColorGard® Snow Guard System is mounted with S-5! Clamps (Aluminium and two Setscrews) and offers optimal protection against sliding snow and ice. In the tradition of S-5!™ - simple and economical, but long lasting durabilitythe snow guard can be finish-matched to the roof panels by the insertion of a strip of roof material into the ColorGard® Rail (RoofTech sells and stores 3m rails). ColorGard® is coordinated with the colour of the painted roof - without expensive costs for coating, but with a finish match that lasts as long as the roof itself.

Available for purchase separately, the VersaClip™ makes installation easy, as it simply slides on the ColorGard® rail and be fixed on the S-5!® clamp.

SnoClip™ is an aluminum add-on that helps retard the migration of snow and ice beneath either the ColorGard® rail. It has a special integrated rubber foot to prevent abrasion of the panel. SnoClip slides onto the ColorGard rail and extends down to the flat of the roofing panel.

Please note:

Assumption is that the determination has been made that the roof to which the S-5! clamps will be attached is structurally adequate. Any loads imposed on the S-5! clamps will be transferred to the panels. Panel seams must have sufficient flexural strength to carry these loads. Panels must also be adequately attached to the building structure, and the structure must be sufficient to carry these loads. The makers and distributor of S-5! clamps make no representations with respect to these variables. It is the responsibility of the user to verify this information, or seek assistance from a qualified design or structural professional, if necessary.
