Dangerous snow slides can occur when ice and snow build up on pitched roofs. Help reduce the possibility
of personal injury or property damage by installing SNOWSHOES on sloped roof areas.
SNOWSHOES are molded from a tough polycarbonate polymer that can withstand heavy impacts at
low temperatures. Effective on all metals, including Kynar-coated metal. Also for use on slate, tile, EPDM
rubber and PVC membrane.
SNOWSHOES are designed with a unique "stealth" profile to be strong and inconspicuous. They are
molded with a translucent matt finish that picks up the background color of roofing materials without
reflecting sunlight. The surface is receptive to paint if strict color matching is required.
SNOWSHOES are 3 1/2" wide by 6" tall. Available in two colors:
Clear -- for light roofs
Smoke -- for dark roofs
FIELD PACK contains 24 SNOWSHOES and three tubes DURASIL adhesive.
Installation is easy with translucent DURASIL adhesive provided in every kit. No screws or mechanical
fasteners (that punch holes in a roof, and lead to leaks and corrosion) are ever required. DURASIL bonds
aggressively to all roofing materials, including Kynar finishes. It bridges irregularities and will never shrink.
1. Remove all surface contamination such as dirt, oil, caulking, and roof
mastics from the bonding area. Clean the bonding surface with alcohol. New
galvanized steel may require a vinegar scrub to remove protective wax
coating. Wipe the area dry before bonding.
2. Mark the position of each part before starting the installation. Lay out the
SNOWSHOES with a tape measure in two staggered lines, approximately
two feet apart horizontally and two feet apart vertically. To help prevent ice
dams, set the first row no less than one foot above the plane of the exterior
3. Roofs with a 6/12 pitch or greater require a third staggered row of
SNOWSHOES. Also, if the distance from the roof edge to the peak is thirty
feet or greater (regardless of slope), two additional staggered rows of
SNOWSHOES should be installed at the mid-point. It is also recommended
that SNOWSHOES be installed over all doorways and roof valley areas for
4. Apply enough DURASIL adhesive to coat the entire bottom of the
SNOWSHOE. Evenly tool the adhesive with the wooden applicator, so
that a sufficient amount will bridge all gaps on textured surfaces.
5. Press the SNOWSHOE firmly in place, with the pointed end down, above
the positioning mark. Press until excess adhesive is uniformly squeezed out
around the edges and through vent holes. Transfer the excess adhesive to
the bottom of the next SNOWSHOE.
6. Apply a small bead of DURASIL adhesive around the perimeter of the
SNOWSHOE to seal the edges.
7. Tool off excessive adhesive from the top of the SNOWSHOE.
Carefully tool the edges with the wooden applicator at a 45 degree angle
to form a smooth, continuous filet. At least three days of 40 degrees F are
required for DURASIL adhesive to set. Depending on temperature,
SNOWSHOE installations develop full strength in seven to fourteen days.
