CUSTOMER TESTIMONIALS

OUR PRODUCTS

Sky Products provides standard or customized solutions to attach solar panels, rooftop lighting, signs, HVAC units, walkways, or snow retention to standing seam roofs without penetrating the panels. Based on our many years of experience and expertise, we help our customers with standard or customized solutions.

  1. SNOW RETENTION

    A snow guard system mitigates the risk of sudden and unexpected release of snow from the roof, which can lead to damaged roof panels, gutters, light fixtures, walls and foundations, protection of lower roofs or worse, severe injury to people.  The idea is to evacuate the snow in a predictable and controlled fashion, as opposed to a sudden release.  It may be hard to imagine that an accumulation of those pretty little snowflakes can have enough force to do serious damage to property and person, but that is the reality.

    OUR SNOW RETENTION PRODUCTS


    ColorGard®

    ColorGard is mechanically attached with patented S-5!® clamps. S-5! is the trusted name in metal rooftop attachment technology worldwide. S-5! patented, round-point setscrews grip the seam securely without penetration and without damage to the panel’s protective finishes. The clamps are precision-machined from aircraft quality, high tensile aluminum—not cast or plastic. All related hardware is non-ferrous stainless steel for lasting performance.​

    DualGard™

    DualGard™ is a complete, 2-pipe snow retention system created for those who prefer a pipe-style snow retention system with the strength, testing, quality and time-proven integrity you expect from S-5!. DualGard can also be color-finished to match the roof. The system utilizes two anchor points per bracket, and can be engineered for structural adequacy online with our new DualGard Calculator and backed by independent lab testing.

    VersaGard™

    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.

    X-Gard™

    X-Gard™ 1.0 is the newest snow retention solution from S-5!® and can be designed as a one- or two-pipe system spanning up to 48″. No other pipe snow retention system on the market has proven stronger than X-Gard.

    X-Gard™ 2.0

    X-Gard™ is the newest snow retention solution from S-5!® and can be designed as a one- or two-pipe system spanning up to 48″. No other pipe snow retention system on the market has proven stronger than X-Gard. The innovative double-clamp design allows X-Gard to provide unprecedented holding strength when attached with S-5!’s standard clamps.
  2. S-5! CLAMPS

    Used on over 1.6 million roofs worldwide, Sky Products uses S-5!® clamps to attach snow retention  and solar systems to the panel seam. The clamps attach to the seam by the tightening of two “bullet –nosed” stainless steel setscrews against the seam material.  The round point setscrews compress the seam material against the opposite wall of the clamp. They will “dimple” the seam material, but will not penetrate it.

    S-5!® clamps are made from 6061-T6 aluminum extrusions conforming to ASTM B221 or aluminum castings conforming to ASTM B85 and to AA Aluminum Standards.

    The setscrews are made from 300 series stainless steel, 18-8 alloy.

    Why Sky Products chose S-5! ® products

    • Laboratory tested for maximum holding strength
    • Clamping technology that does not penetrate the standing seam
    • Engineered uniquely for each profile
    • Easy to install
    • Installed on over 1.6 million roofs worldwide and counting

    Are they strong enough? 

    In order to promote the best non penetrating clamping system S-5! ® has performed hundreds of tensile-load tests to prove the holding strength of the clamps. All tests were performed by a third party A2LA accredited laboratory, all results are available online.

  3. SOLAR

    The concept of combining photovoltaic arrays with standing seam metal roofing is growing—and for good reasons. A standing seam metal roof has a life expectancy consistent with that of framed PV modules.

    A 30-year power source on a 40-year roof, along with zero-penetration technology, creates the most sustainable roof system available with alternative power generation, all without compromising the roof manufacturer’s warranty!

  4. METAL PLUS BRACKETS

    The world’s best standing seam metal roofing brackets—The Ultimate Bracket, The Big Boy’s, and The Roofer’s Helper—began with a metal roofing contractor who realized that his work time was inefficient.

    Upon searching the web and metal roofing magazines, he soon discovered there was no bracket designed strictly for standing seam metal roofing that would enable the contractor to install metal roofing in a comfortable, efficient, and safe manner. This is how the idea was born to invent and develop his own. The process took several years to invent, patent, develop, and manufacture. The outcome has been well worth the wait. We are now able to offer you these three brackets: The Ultimate Bracket, The Big Boy’s, and The Roofer’s Helper. We have no doubt that once your company uses these brackets, you will find that the installation of standing seam metal roofing has never been so fast, efficient, and comfortable.​
