S-5!® ColorGard® is the snow guard system which perfectly matches with the colour of the metal roof. This is done by the insertion of a strip of roof material into the 3m ColorGard®-rail. S-5!® ColorGard® is attached with S-5!® clamps (with 2 setscrews) depends to the type of seam. The round-point setscrews grip the seam securely without penetration and without damage to the panel’s protective finishes.
The technical and economic advantages of the ColorGard® snow guard:
Mounted with the S-5!® clamps (with 2 set screws) made of aluminium, significantly higher forces can be absorbed than with snow guards with conventional seam clamps. This means that fewer rows of snow guards are often necessary, which has a very positive effect on the overall calculation. In addition, no complex and expensive colour coating is necessary.
The S-5!® ColorGard® snow guard system includes the following components:
ColorGard-Rail 3m long, VersaClip, SnoClip and Clamp with two setscrews.
The S-5!® ColorGard System is mounted on the S-5!®-Clamp made of Aluminium (with 2 setscrews) suitable for the seam type:

A professional snow guard is used for traffic safety and protects pedestrians and objects from falling snow and iceloads. The dimensioning and design of a snow guard system depends on the building use and location as well as the roof shape and pitch. The responsibility for this always remains with the builder or building owner. RoofTech GmbH and S-5!® – Metal Roof Innovations Ltd. generally recommend that the snow guard system is planned and dimensioned by a qualified professional.
