Part Number: SS-RG1
The Sno Shield Rib Guard 1 is a UV stabilized clear polycarbonate clamp-on snow guard that uses two stainless steel set screws to attach to a standing seam rib on mental roofs. It allows for seams up to 7/16" in width and 1" to 1 5/8" in height; for roof seams higher than 1 5/8", switch to the Rib Guard 2. This snow stop will not penetrate the roof. Great option for low snow load areas.
Snow guards are crucial when it comes to keeping snow and ice from sliding off the roof. The Rib Guard is a polycarbonate clamp on snow guard / break which stops snow from sliding down and off standing seam metal roofs. The Rib Guard was designed to clamp onto a seam or rib of a standing seam metal roof using two stainless steel set screws, which pinch the rib/seam between the two set screws and the two off setting internal cleats which make it an ideal snow guard to be installed any time of year. Besides looking clean cut and aesthetically pleasing for any residential or commercial roofing project, Sno Shield's Rib Guard snow guard is an efficient, economical way to ensure snow stays where is falls, on your roof, until it can melt and come off in a manageable time frame.
When snow falls off the roof this is known as a rooftop avalanche. Those little things people see on the roof that are keeping the snow on the roof are known as snow guards. As metal roofs become more popular so do snow guards. Are snow guards necessary for your roof? YES!! People are hurt or killed, gutters are ripped off, and outside appliances are damaged such as HVAC units, patios, decks, barbecue grills, etc. If large quantities of snow fall from the roof doors, driveways / garages and even windows are blocked.
