Colorado Springs, CO – The new DualGard™ snow retention system from S-5! uses two 1-inch pipes to keep snow and ice in place while it melts safely. When installed properly, DualGard protects people and property from dangerous roof snow avalanches. Designed to preserve the coveted look of the metal roof, DualGard can be painted, powder coated or anodized to match virtually any metal roofing system.

Mounted with S-5! mini clamps, this versatile system comes with two sizes of snow clips for every roof type and can fit virtually any seam profile. Unlike similar looking systems, DualGard has been fully tested and can be engineered for the specific roof and environment. For anyone who prefers the style of dual pipes and seeks to maximize savings, DualGard is the smart answer.
