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.
Snow Retention Applications:
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 adhesive mounted snow guards.
Important: Using DualGard pipe and other components with VersaGard does not assign DualGard snowload values to VersaGard.
VersaGard 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.
To accommodate various rib heights and to support one or two-pipe preferences, VersaGard comes with two 1.05" holes (pipe sold separately). To support PV installation, the diagonal slot provides height flexibility.
VersaGard can be installed parallel (for snow retention or PV installation) or perpendicular to the rib (PV installation only).
