The SnoBar Two Bar System is a snow retention solution designed for metal roofs. The standard-duty system features two 1" x 1" square bars made of Gatorshield®-coated galvanized steel. The heavy-duty ColorBar Two Bar system features an extruded 6061-T6 structural aluminum bar that can accept a color strip. The bars are securely fastened to standing seam panels using patented aluminum RCT or RC RoofClamps, which are equipped with stainless steel cup-tipped set screws.

The system is designed to be less labor-intensive and does not require roof penetration. The RCT clamp is compatible with most bulb and "T"-shaped standing seam roofs and works with angled eaves. Both systems can be painted to match the roof color. The Color accepts a color strip, or it can be painted to match. The two-bar system is stronger than a single-bar system and includes all aluminum components with stainless steel fasteners.

The SnoBar and ColorBar Two Bar Snow Rail systems are easy to install. The exclusive low-torque roof clamps combined with top loading brackets make this the industry's fastest bar system to install.

It is important to note that in instances where there is an overhang at the eave edge, it is crucial to ensure that the overhang can hold the accumulated loading. Otherwise, the first row of SnoBar or ColorBar should occur at the bearing wall. The system should not be placed in isolated areas such as doorways, vents, and partial roof areas without special design considerations.  Short sections of SnoBar or ColorBar must span at least two seams. A short bar clamped to a single seam is not acceptable and will fail.

In conclusion, the SnoBar Two Bar system is a robust and versatile solution for snow retention on metal roofs. It combines strength, durability, and ease of installation with flexibility to match the aesthetic of the roof.

Available in mill finish or powder-coated to match the roof.  This two-bar installation is fast and easy. Mill finish 6 foot Two Bar ColorBar kits  and 6 foot Two bar SnoBar kits are in stock, packed in boxes, and ship fast via ground shipping. Large and custom orders will be cut to 12-foot bar lengths, packaged in wood crates, and shipped via LTL freight.

  •  Fits Most Bulb & "T"-shaped  Standing Seam Roofs
  •  Less labor intensive & no roof penetrations
  •  Works with with angled eaves.
  •  Square Bar System Can Be Painted To Match The Roof Color.

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 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) run the risk of ice damming with the addition of this type of system. 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 cannot exceed 24"O.C. Clamp spacing varies dependign 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 seperate seam cover or batten. 5. The U-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/Arhitect, 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.) 9. It is the sole responsibility fo 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. This is a special-order item, thus All Sales are Final. Sorry, no returns accepted.

About SnoBar-ColorBar

In 1992, Don Drew and Dick Riddell invented SnoBar, the original standing seam-mounted snow rail, earning a patent the following year. The first version, Sno Horse, was installed by Jim Huff at Denver International Airport in 1992. Inspired by office desk name plates, he ingeniously created an aluminum bar with a channel that could accept a strip of colored metal in its face. This design evolved into ColorBar, featuring rapid installation with patented drop-in clamps. Roof clamps, available in stainless steel or aluminum, secure the bar to standing seam metal roofs, making SnoBar the longest-standing snow rail system. There is a SnoBar and ColorBar snow retention system for every sloped roof prone to snow slides. Both snow rails can be powder-coated to match your metal roof.
