X-Gard snow-retention solution from S-5! can be designed as a one- or two-pipe system spanning up to 48 inches. X-Gard is mechanically attached with patented round-point setscrews, gripping seams securely without penetration or damage to the panel’s protective finishes. Two clamps with each bracket and the unique shape of the NEX 2.0 pipe enables a properly installed X-Gard system to provide a reliable snow-retention solution in a wide variety of situations. The X-Clip is an aluminum component that slows the migration of snow and ice beneath the X-Gard NEX 2.0 Pipe. Its integrated rubber “foot” prevents abrasion of the panel’s finish.
