Safely break apart sliding snow and ice! The SnowBreaker can be mechanically fastened or adhesive mounted. The SnowBreaker 3M peel-and-stick version is also perfect for wintertime applications. The SnowBreaker is pleasing to the eye, easy to install, and very effective in preventing damage caused by the sudden release of snow and ice, all without worries of overloading your roof. No other snow guard can make this claim!
As the snow and ice slide on the roof, this cost-effective product minimizes the danger by slicing the frozen precipitation into small pieces so it can safely come off the roof. The forward cutting edge and the tucked back rear support form a triangular shape that acts like a fin to split up the frozen precipitation.
Isolated Areas and Doorways: In theory, a snow guard can not hold snow and ice in an isolated area on a roof because the load of the frozen mass will extend to the unprotected area. This severely overloads the snow retention system and will cause premature release and eventual failure. The SnowBreaker is not designed to hold snow for very long so this theory can be modified by placing the SnowBreaker in a 45-degree outward angle over the desired isolated area to protect. This is a huge cost savings over conventional snow guard systems that require the entire roof area to have snow retention. Please see the drawing for recommended placement over doorways and isolated areas. Please see the link for snow guard spacing before purchasing. CAUTION, the SnowBreaker product may not be a total protection solution for vent pipes, chimneys, and masts! Screws and Adhesive are sold separately
