METAL ROOF ATTACHMENT SOLUTIONS

Why Snow Retention?

When snow accumulations begin to melt, the result can be catastrophic as the blanket of snow avalanches off the roof dumping tons of snow onto anything in its path. It can damage landscape, gutters, adjacent roofs, vehicles, and cause injury or death to passers-by. SnoRail™ and SnoFence™ retention systems dramatically reduce these risks associated with rooftop avalanches, maintaining the clean lines of the roof and lasting as long as the roof itself! SnoRail™ and SnoFence™ can be designed and engineered on a site-specific basis.

Brass Assembly Components

Aluminum Assembly Components

Brass SnoRail™/SnoFence™

The brass SnoRail™/SnoFence™ assembly is designed for use on copper batten or standing seam roofs.

Aluminum SnoRail™/SnoFence™

The aluminum SnoRail™/SnoFence™ assembly is the perfect choice for most standing seam roofing materials.

S-5-B-SF Clamp

These brass clamps are designed to fit traditional double-folded, horizontal seam profiles having a finished seam (thickness) dimension of .25” or less. The clamp is specially designed for versatility on a variety of standing panel seams and profiles – both architectural and structural. All components come with required hardware.

S-5-A-SF Clamp

These aluminum clamps are designed to fit either vertical or horizontal seam profiles (rotating 90º) having a finished seam (thickness) dimension of .40″ or less. The clamp is specially designed for versatility on a variety of standing panel seams and profiles – both architectural and structural.

SnoPost™

The brass SnoPost™, when threaded into the clamp, provides for the addition of a second SnoRod™ about 2” above the first. This double rod configuration is called “SnoFence™”, and is more durable for heavier service load conditions.

SnoPost™

The stainless SnoPost™, when threaded into the clamp, provides for the addition of a second SnoRod™ about 2” above the first. This double rod configuration is called “SnoFence™”, and is more durable for heavier service load conditions.

S-5-BE Clamp

The S-5-BE™ clamp and SnoPost BE™ are used at the rate of one per 50′ of assembly, and at the ends of the assembly to “fix” the SnoRod™, preventing lateral movement.

S-5-AE Clamp

The S-5-AE™ clamp and SnoPost E™ are used at the rate of one per 50′ of assembly, and at the ends of the assembly to “fix” the SnoRod™, preventing lateral movement.

SnoPost™ BE

The S-5-BE™ clamp and SnoPost BE™ are used at the rate of one per 50′ of assembly, and at the ends of the assembly to “fix” the SnoRod™, preventing lateral movement.

SnoPost™ E

The S-5-AE™ clamp and SnoPost E™ are used at the rate of one per 50′ of assembly, and at the ends of the assembly to “fix” the SnoRod™, preventing lateral movement.

SnoRod™

The brass SnoRod™ is inserted through the S-5-BSF clamps, placing it just above the panel seams. Add a second SnoRod™ through the SnoPosts™ for a SnoFence™ system.

Stainless Steel SnoRod™

The brass SnoRod™ is inserted through the S-5-BSF clamps, placing it just above the panel seams. Add a second SnoRod™ through the SnoPosts™ for a SnoFence™ system.

SnoRod™ Coupling

The coupling assures end-to-end rod alignment and continuity.

Building Your SnoRail / SnoFence Snow Retention System

SnoRail System

One SnoRod™ is inserted through the S-5-ASF or S-5-BSF clamps, positioning it just above the panel seams. The resulting assembly is called SnoRail.

SnoFence System

With an assembled SnoRail System, simply thread one SnoPost™ into the S-5-ASF or S-5-BSF clamp, and then add a second SnoRod 2” above the first. The resulting double rod assembly is called a SnoFence.
