This is the industry's FIRST recycled snow guard made from post-consumer polycarbonate. Now you can buy "green" and still know you are using a trusted and proven snow guard made with materials that are comprised mostly of recycled 5-gallon water bottles and compact discs.
Post-consumer waste is what we as consumers discard every day, filling our landfills and taxing our resources. Reusing this discarded content will help make a significant environmental impact and increase our energy savings in the long run. When you use Eco-Blox recycled snow guards, you are helping to give new life to materials that would normally be discarded as waste. According to the EPA, in general, it takes a third less energy to make a product from recycled plastic than making the same product from new plastic. Protecting our resources and creating less trash means a better earth for us to enjoy for generations to come.
We believe that the Eco-Blox is a sustainable design that contributes to a healthier and more resource-efficient method of construction. Polycarbonate snow guards are sustainable in a variety of ways, including energy conservation in manufacturing and the potential for recyclability upon demolition.
The Eco-Blox is based on our popular “DEUCE” model and can be adhesively mounted or mechanically fastened and requires a 1.5" flat mounting area. This model will fit most popular 36" panels with three 12" flats or four 9" flats without rib straddling! The waffled base provides almost triple the bonding power of a smooth bottom guard in this size category. Starter points are provided for mechanical fastening. The Eco-Blox is available in Clear and has a slightly darker UV tint than our other snow guards. Professional ATI test results show the SnoBlox Deuce held up to 3456 pounds when screw mounted and 1379 pounds when adhesive mounted using the SB-190. All tests were performed simulating realistic snow-loading conditions applied to the face of the guard.
Placement in just isolated areas such as chimneys, doorways, vents, and partial roof sections is NOT recommended. Please see the link for snow guard spacing before purchasing. Screws and Adhesive are sold separately.
