S-5!'s X-Gard pipe snow retention system and S-5!'s Utility System

S-5! announced two new products: the X-Gard pipe snow retention system and the S-5! Utility System.

S-5! announced two new products: the X-Gard pipe snow retention system and the S-5! Utility System. X-Gard was designed to be paired with locally purchased round pipe or NEX 2.0 pipe. The retention system spans up to 48 inches and can be purchased as a one- or two-pipe system, depending on project specifics including pitch and snow load. X-Gard double-clamp, when attached with S-5!'s standard or mini-sized clamps, provides holding strength. The employment of two clamps with each bracket and the shape of the NEX 2.0 pipe enable a properly installed X-Gard system to provide a reliable snow retention solution in a wide variety of situations. The Utility System enables attachment of utility applications including signs, banners, light fixtures, gas piping, antennas, roof walkways, HVAC equipment, lightning protection systems, condensate lines, stack/flue bracing, fascias, equipment screens, electrical conduit, antennas and cabling. The retention system can be rotated 360-degrees for orientation versatility. X-Gard and S-5! Utility System can be attached to major standing seam metal roof profiles without damaging the roof and voiding roof manufacturers' warranties. X-Gard and S-5! Utility System both mechanically attach with round-point setscrews that grip the seam without penetrating or damaging the panel's protective finishes. The setscrews slightly dimple the metal seam material without piercing it, leaving roof manufacturers' warranties intact. www.s-5.com
