THE INDUSTRY LEADER IN METAL ROOF
ColorGard® System Overview
The sudden and unexpected release of snow from the roof can be dramatic, posing a serious threat to property and passers-by. ColorGard® dramatically reduces the risks associated with rooftop avalanches and maintains the clean colorful appearance of the roof with perfect color and finish matching, which lasts as long as the roof itself! ColorGard is the only snow retention system designed and engineered on a site-specific basis; guaranteed to perform, to not damage the roof or finish, and to exactly match the roof color—for the entire life of the roof.
ColorGard® is manufactured from mill-finished, aircraft quality aluminum. It comes in 8 foot long sections, in punched or unpunched configurations. Splices are included with ColorGard® for adjacent sections. For use with S-5!® heavy duty clamps, VersaBracket™ and CorruBracket™.
Punched ColorGard® is slotted every 4” (10.2 cm) on center for seams that are spaced accordingly, i.e. divisible by 4” (10.2cm). The slotted configuration works well with S-5!® clamps.
Unpunched ColorGard® is the most versatile and easy to install, when used with the S-5!® VersaClip™. Unpunched does not need holes, as the VersaClip™ accommodates any seam spacing. The unpunched configuration works well with VersaBracket™. Unpunched is the right choice when the roof is laid out with untrue seam width or when the seam width is not divisible by 4. If in doubt, use unpunched.
Included with crossmembers, use the Splice to join two pieces of ColorGard® together, ensuring continuous, unbroken protection. The dimple in the center is designed to provide a gap, allowing for expansion and contraction of the ColorGard® sections.
Available for purchase separately, VersaClip™ makes installation easy, as it simply slides on the ColorGard® crossmember. It can be used with all S-5!® clamps (one per clamp), and is optional with CorruBracket™. VersaClip™ is not needed with VersaBracket™. VersaClip™ is also handy when installing ColorGard® askew, such as is required in the valleys between intersecting rooflines.
SnapClip™ is a retrofitted component added to retard the migration of snow and ice beneath the crossmembers. Click here for detailed information on the SnapClip.
Not included, the color strip should be requested in 2” wide strips from the manufacturer of the roofing material in order to ensure a perfect color match for the life of the system.
