X-Gard™ 2.0 – Snow Guards for Standing Seam Metal Roof

Roofs that collect large amounts of snow require Herculean performance. X-Gard 2.0 provides that heavy-duty, engineered assurance your project may need.

This two-pipe, snow guard system is easily retrofitted to existing roofs or can be incorporated in new construction design.
