Typical Snow Guard Spacing Guidelines



Simplyprovide a legitimate email addressand Start Using The SPACING TOOL Today.

The Theory: Snow and ice can avalanche dangerously off of glossy coated metal roofing. Snow guards are installed to help prevent the dangerous slide of snow and ice. Our approach to snowguard placement involves placing snowguards throughout the entire roof area to keep snow and ice from shifting initially. Once frozen precipitation looses its grip on a metal roof and begins a down-hill slide, it is exposed to inertia and as such, a row of guards placed along the eave or gutter edge of the roof is not always enough protection against dangerous avalanche. If you hold snow and ice in place with an effective snow guard layout, you evenly distribute the load on the roof and the snow-guards and the threat of avalanche is effectively eliminated. An evenly distributed snow load will preserve the long-term integrity of the structure and snow guard pattern.

Due to the overwhelming inquiries for placement and number of snow guards recommended, we have developed one of the first online snow guard calculators that will provide an instant price quote and project estimate based on your project specifications. The Project Estimator or SPACING TOOL, as we have called it, will walk you through the process of computing the correct number of snow guards recommended for your project.

NEW IN 2008: We have taken the Project Estimator to the next level, it will now produce custom, instant snow guard spacing layouts. Understanding and installing snow guard patterns has never been easier!
