Safely Direct Snow off Your Metal Roof With Snow Guards

Snow sliding off your roof can cause substantial damage to property, and even worse, potentially injure people below.


What Can You Do as a Building Owner to Help Reduce These Risks?
Use Engineered Metal Roof Snow Guards!

You may not be able to predict when a rooftop snow slide will occur, but you can help control how the snow melts off your roof. Snow retention systems increase the friction between the roof and the snow to retain it in place and allow it to evacuate in a controlled manner (thaw and sublimation). In addition, snow guards - also known as metal roof ice stops - help keep large amounts of ice from sliding off a metal roof all at once.

When selecting a snow rail design, it is critical that the system is engineered to resist the forces, which will try to tear it from its mounting. This is done by prudent science, math and testing, not by guesswork. Snow guards must have proven in-service and real-world testing to back them up.
