Accessories for Metal Roof Snow Guards

An Array of Accessories For Snow Retention Systems

Metal roof snow guards have an array of accessories available to prevent the dangerous movement of frozen precipitation on a sloped roof. Accessories are additional components or features that can enhance the functionality and performance of snow guards on a roof. These accessories are often used to customize snow guard systems to meet specific needs and to improve their effectiveness in preventing snow and ice avalanches on metal roofs.

Products such as the SureBond SB-190 snow guard adhesive can be used to mount snow guards to a metal roof without panel penetration. Silicone sealants are used to make a weathertight seal underneath and around the perimeter of mechanically attached snow guards.

For convenience, SnoBar and ColorBar components are available to purchase separately just in case components get lost on the job site. IceStoppers are an important add-on item that can often be overlooked when ordering a snow rail system; they can easily be retrofitted to the system after it is installed.

Sometimes vent stack pipes and chimneys need some extra protection. That’s why there are several types of VentSavers to choose from, including several plate-mounted standing seam options.

LeafBlox gutter guards provide continuous gutter protection and have even been shown to reduce gutter ice in the winter. The UV-resistant black polypropylene bristles absorb heat from the sun and can help melt ice and snow in your gutters.

Accessories Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

When purchasing a snow guard system, we make it easy by adding options for either adhesive or screw mounting at the click of a button. When you select these options, we will ensure you receive the necessary accessories to finish the job. However, there are times when you may want extra product on hand. For example, when items are dropped from the roof and go missing. We have the majority of our accessories in stock and ready to ship. Some people will want to consider purchasing extra screws, silicone, adhesive, roof panel cleaner, or a RidgePro safety device.

RoofClamp RC and RoofClamp RCT have many uses and provide robust and durable attachment points for just about anything that needs mounting to a standing seam metal roof. We are so confident in their performance that we use them with some of our snow rail systems and VentSaver plates. Some common examples of products you can attach to your roof are satellite dishes, solar panels, signage, etc. You need RoofClamps to get the job done right the first time!

VentSavers work incredibly well when paired with snow guards. We recommend VentSavers when there is enough space between the top of your pipe and the next row of a properly spaced snow guard layout so that snow and ice can slide into your pipe. It only takes minimal weight or force to crush a vent pipe. Snow and ice can weigh anywhere from 1 pound per cubic foot to over 21 pounds per cubic foot, depending on moisture content. VentSavers split the snow and ice around the pipe and add extra support.

One of our newest and most exciting product offerings is the RIDGEPRO®. The RIDGEPRO® is a roof anchoring safety system that makes transitioning from a ladder to your roof and then back easier and safer while also allowing you to access the peak of the roof faster than a standard rope and harness setup. This revolutionary product is a more cost-effective solution than scaffolding or roof planks. We never recommend our snow guards or RoofClamps as footholds or anchor points.

Anyone can install LeafBlox, and it couldn't be easier! Anyone who can clean gutters from a ladder can install our DIY gutter guard. Many people buy LeafBlox and install it themselves to save money on leaf guards. Just bend LeafBlox around corners and slide it under the gutter's pre-existing brackets. The final piece can be folded or cut. It's straightforward!

The newest product in our lineup is the SataMount™. You can use this universal-fit mounting kit with Starlink, but that is just the tip of the iceberg for this product. You can also use SataMount™ when installing solar microinverters, electrical junction boxes, conduits, and more!!
