SnoBar and ColorBar Snow Rails
Metal Roof Snow Guards offers several types of snow fences for metal roofs. The SnoBar is a 1-inch square tube that comes standard in a mill finish that is Gatorshield coated. It can also be powder coated to blend in with the color of the roof. The ColorBar is an extruded aluminum structural bar that can accept a color strip in the face of the bar or can be powder coated to match the roof. All powder-coated snow retention systems are special orders taken over the phone.
Both types of bars can be attached with stainless steel or aluminum roof clamps on a standing seam metal roof panel. The SnoBar clamps are mounted to the standing seams with cupped tip set screws torqued to a low setting of only 90 inch-pounds. Alternatively, screw-down attachment of the snow rails is available using aluminum screw-down brackets. This method of attachment is typically used when installing snow bars on a mechanically fastened metal roof panel such as an R-Panel or PBR-Panel.
For extreme conditions on a standing seam metal roof, there is a double bar snow retention system available for the SnoBar and ColorBar.
