The X-Gard™ 1.0 Bracket, brought to you by S-5!®, represents the pinnacle of innovation in snow retention systems for metal roofs. Designed to combat the hazardous effects of snow avalanches, which can cause extensive damage to property and pose serious risks to safety, this bracket is a key component in the X-Gard snow retention system.

Robust Construction for Unmatched Strength

  • Material Quality: The X-Gard 1.0 Bracket is precision-machined from high tensile, aircraft-quality aluminum, ensuring superior strength and longevity. This material choice provides a robust solution far superior to common cast or plastic alternatives.
  • Corrosion-Resistant Hardware: All related hardware, including the clamps, is crafted from non-ferrous stainless steel. This choice of material guarantees enduring performance and resistance to corrosion, essential for the longevity of the product.


Innovative Design for Maximum Efficiency

  • Double-Clamp Support: Featuring an innovative double-clamp design, the X-Gard 1.0 Bracket, when used with S-5!'s standard clamps, offers unprecedented holding strength. This design ensures that the system remains securely in place even under heavy snow loads.
  • Compatibility with NEX® 2.0 Pipe: The bracket is designed to work seamlessly with the ultra-strong NEX® 2.0 crossmember. This compatibility makes the X-Gard 1.0 the most heavy-duty, one-pipe system available on the market, suitable for both light and heavy-duty applications.


Versatile and Damage-Free Installation

  • Mechanical Attachment: The bracket is attached mechanically using patented round-point setscrews. This method grips the metal roof seam securely, ensuring stability without penetrating the roof or damaging its protective finishes.
  • Year-Round Installation Flexibility: X-Gard 1.0 can be easily retrofitted to existing roofs or incorporated into new construction designs, offering flexibility in installation throughout the year on almost any metal roof profile.

It efficiently manages snow retention, safeguarding against potential damage to landscapes, adjacent roofs, gutters, vehicles, and, most importantly, pedestrians.
  • Light to Heavy-Duty Applications: Depending on the requirement, fewer anchorage points are needed for light-duty applications, making it a versatile choice for various settings.


Ensure Safety and Protect Your Property: Investing in the X-Gard™ 1.0 Bracket means choosing safety and protection for your property. Its superior design, quality materials, and versatile application make it an indispensable addition to any metal roofing system, especially in regions susceptible to heavy snowfall.
