DualGard Brochure

Is DualGard the Right Choice for Your Project?

DualGard is a two-pipe, 1” dia, (25 mm), aluminum, snow bar system that can be powder-coated or anodized to match your roof if desired. It can be used on almost any standing seam metal roof, in addition to corrugated roof profiles.

For standing seam metal roofs, DualGard utilizes two S-5! Mini clamps, providing a broad base of attachment for extra holding strength when compared with other two-pipe systems. 

For corrugated, DualGard uses the CorruBracket™, providing you versatile mounting options (requires a deck below).

Benefits:

  • Compatible with standing seam metal roof profiles using S-5! clamps or CorruBracket
  • Can be color-finished (anodized or powder-coated) to match the roof
  • Low-cost, job-specific P.E. wet stamp available for standing seam applications 
  • Engineer a system for any site-specific roof with the online S-5! Snow Guard Calculator
  • Be sure to check out the many other benefits on the snow guard overview page

Average cost* is approximately $12.00 to $17.00 per linear foot of assembly.

*Average cost is for product only and does not include shipping or labor. Pricing is in USD. Prices vary based on region and other factors. Pricing improves with order quantity. Broken boxes may be subject to handling charges. Call your Authorized S-5! Distributor for current pricing.
