VersaGard is compatible with almost any trapezoidal, exposed-fastened profile. No messy sealants to apply! No chance for leaks! VersaGard comes with factory-applied butyl sealant already in the base, and the S-5! patented reservoir conceals the sealant from UV exposure, preventing drying and cracks. Installation is simple! 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. While the circular holes in the vertical part of the bracket support 1″ pipes, the diagonal slot provides flexible support for PV installations via the use of 3/8″, M8, or M10 bolts. Snow Retention Applications VersaGard can dramatically reduce the risks associated with snow avalanches sliding off of roofs, dumping tons of snow onto anything in its path, at an amazingly affordable price. A VersaGard pipe snow retention system functions without cluttering the lines of the roof and is dramatically stronger than adhesively-mounted snow guards. Solar Applications VersaGard can also be used in lieu of an L-foot to support the installation of photovoltaic panels. VersaGard works with most rail or racking systems, and can be oriented parallel or perpendicular to the roof line.
