Double-Bar Mounts

  • Double-Bar Mounts are perfect for projects with heavy snow loads that require a two bar system in their specifications.
  • This is the fastest installing system on the market due to the exclusive top-loading mounts that allow the SnoBar/ColorBar to be set down into the mount instead of having to be fed thru the mount.
  • Attachment is achieved with our "Cupped Tip Stainless Steel Screws". These specially designed screws permanently anchor to the seam.
  • "Lifetime Warranty" on all parts and finish when installed according to manufacturer's recommendations.
  • Double-Bar Mounts are constructed from extruded aluminum and utilize our trusted, patented RoofClamps.
  • Fastest lead times in the industry.
  • Available color-match powder coating on components.
  • Easy Installation. The bar is not fed through the clamp like other systems.
  • Made in the U.S.A.

Metal Roof Windguard Rail System

  • Metal Roof Windguard utilizes Wind Stoppers to press against the panel flat to prevent uplift to eliminate panel damage and noise caused by high winds.
  • High speed winds form low pressure areas above the panel surface resulting in panel failure due to seam disengagement.
  • The patented Wind Stopper prevents panel damage caused by high-speed winds.
  • "Lifetime Warranty" on all parts and finish when installed according to manufacturer's recommendations.
  • A Year Round Solution
  • Fastest lead times in the industry.
  • Features super strong "cupped tipped" stainless steel screws, not slippery "bull nose" screws.
  • Available color-match powder coating on components.
  • Uses the only available one piece, top loading stainless steel clamp for standing seam roofs.
  • Easy Installation. The bar is not fed through the clamp like other systems.
  • Made in the U.S.A.

System Attachment and Ice Stopper

SnoBar, ColorBar and ColorRail Design Considerations

  • PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE CONSIDERING RAILS FOR YOUR PROJECT.

    The following warranty is made in lieu of all other warranties expressed or implied. Recommendations for proper use of the product are based on tests believed to be reliable. Any goods proven to be defective due to materials will be replaced, or purchase price refunded, but in no event shall the manufacturer be responsible for damages in excess of the purchase price. User shall determine the suitability of the product for its intended use and assumes all risks of its use or handling.

    1. All loads incurred by the SnoBar will be transferred to the panels. Therefore, proper panel attachment to substrate/structure is necessary to prevent roof panels from sliding under snow load. New and existing structures must be evaluated to insure they can withstand retained snow loads. (In instances where there is an overhang at the eave edge, it is imperative to make sure that the overhang can hold the accumulated loading, otherwise the first row of SnoBar should occur at the bearing wall.)

    2. It is not recommended to place the SnoBar System just in isolated areas such as doorways, vents and partial roof areas. Please call for special design considerations in those areas.

    3. Consider whether your roof system and/or substrates (felts or membranes) are designed to take the increased ice damming that will occur with the addition of snow retention.

    4. The SnoBar Clamp System requires the roof panel to be a min. of 24 GA. steel and have a seam height of at least 1". Clamp spacing for SnoBar can not exceed 24"O.C. Clamp spacing varies depending on seam spacing (12" o.c. up to 42" o.c). Clamps should be placed at every seam, so that the load is distributed evenly to every roof panel. It is not recommended to use a clamp type system when the roof uses a separate seam cover or batten.

    5. The Color-Bracket System requires a purlin or structural support beneath it to mount to.

    6. No snow retention system is capable of retaining 100% of snow and ice from falling off the roof.

    7. Designer/Architect, Installer, or Owner of the project should have knowledge of the local snow loads, climatic conditions, roof slope, roof orientation, and roof design prior to installing SnoBar.

    8. After considering the above factors, the determine lineal feet of SnoBar required is based on length of panels, roof slope, snow loading and areas needing protection from falling snow. (Call SnoBlox-Snojax for clamp and bar loading values.)

    It is the sole responsibility of the Designer/Architect, Installer, or Owner to assess the suitability of using the SnoBar System based on the above design considerations. SnoBlox-Snojax or any or its subsidiaries, or Riddell & Company, Inc and Action Manufacturing are under no liability if failure occurs from improper installation, improper set screw torque, improper panel attachment, improper roof system installation, improper use of the SnoBar system or under designed system placement of the SnoBar system.
