Roof Snow Guards
Snow Guards are devices which attach to roof structures in a variety of manners in order to prevent the avalanching of snow from the roof, which can be hazardous to both pedestrians and properties alike. Roof snow guards come in a variety of shapes, sizes and styles and are installed with a specific quantity and pattern based on the shape, size and pitch of the roof to provide the most uniform system of retention possible. Also referred to as Snow Cleats, Snow Brackets, Snow Jacks, and Snow Pads – they are designed specifically to reduce snow movement and control the rate melting and subsequent breakdown of the roof’s snow mass into smaller and therefore safer sections.
RMSG is proud to be the distributor and custom layout designer for the patented SnowTrapper line of snow guards for the roofs. The SnowTrapper is available in a number of configurations for use on many roofing products. SnowTrapper products are available in Copper Snow Guards and Kynar-Coated Aluminum. Exceptionally strong, The SnowTrapper Snow Guard Design has been proven in over 15 years of real-world experience. CP5 clear polycarbonate snow guards are the ideal product for Metal Roofs and can be mechanically attached or adhered to metal roofing systems. The CP5 is an inexpensive snow guard for use on light to medium duty installations.
The Corgard Snow Guard is an exceptionally strong Metal Roof Ice Guard and has been designed to “blend in” on a corrugated steel roof or through fastened metal panel roof. The Corgard Metal Roof Snow Guard fastens through the top of the corrugation rather than through the bottom of the corrugation to reduce water ponding and eliminate the possibility of leaking around the fasteners.
RMSG offers a wide variety of snow fence systems. Snow fences are a
very strong type of retention system that is typically applied on metal roofing systems and in
higher snow load areas. Snow fencing provides a strong barrier that the snow is held against to
prevent catastrophic release onto areas below.
The L Bracket, bolt down snow fence system is ideal in areas where a great deal of snow hold
is necessary or on very slippery surfaces. They are fastened into a variety of substrates and it
is highly recommended you contact RMSG to determine bracket spacing and necessary parts
The Z-Bracket Clamp-To-Seam Snow Fence System is a uniquely designed snow fence system that utilizes the patented PMC AceClamp to attach the Z Bracket to the vertical seams on standing seam
metal roofs. The AceClamp is a non-penetrating attachment method that is preferred my
most metal roofing contractors. These snow fences provide exceptional hold in all snow areas
and can be powder coated to match the roofing system. As with the L Bracket, it is highly
recommended that you contact RMSG for a job-specific layout and parts quantities.
