VersaGard is a metal roof bracket used for both PV installation and snow retention on exposed-fastened metal roofs. For snow applications, see VersaGard™ snow guard system.
Mounting Solar PV With VersaGard
VersaGard functions as an L-Foot and mounting base in one component for PV rail mounting. The bracket is specifically designed with a factory-applied, butyl sealant offering a long-term service life, free from UV degradation, drying and cracking. No unreliable, field-applied caulking is needed.
Used with side-bolted rail systems, VersaGard can be installed either parallel or perpendicular to slope for portrait or landscape module orientation.
The diagonal slot design of the bracket makes 1.75” (45 mm) of height adjustability a snap. Bolts and nuts are offered separately with common bolt sizes.
Wire management holes are also provided. The circular holes in the vertical part of the bracket support up to 1” (25 mm) conduit.
If you want to use the rail manufacturer’s L-Foot instead, see S-5! SolarFoot.
*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.
Be sure to check out the many other benefits on the bracket overview page.
VersaGard is mounted in the flat of the panel, directly into the supporting structure of the roof (i.e., wood decking, wood or steel purlins or trusses).
No surface preparation is necessary. Simply wipe away excess oil and debris; peel the release paper from the base, align and apply. Secure through the pre-punched holes using the appropriate screws for the supporting structure. Always use S-5! tested fasteners to achieve published holding strength (sold separately).
