The Powder Coated SnowCatcher is an American made, 16 gauge, metal screw down snow guard that is constructed from 304 grade stainless steel. It has a forward style 4” wide face and a 1.5” wide base fits most 36” panels with minor ribs at least 1.5" apart. The SnowCatcher requires 2 screws per guard, the third hole can be used for an extra screw, but it is intended as a holding point for powder coating. Professional test results demonstrated that the original SnowCatcher held up to 3923 pounds of force pushing against the face of the guard before the method of attachment failed. The original shape of the SnowCatcher was retained throughout the entire test. The super strong stainless steel construction does not get brittle like cheap fabricated cast guards. A 1/16" thick adhesive backed V742 CCF PVC foam sealer base pad is included so there is no need to by silicone. Different computer monitors and screens can display colors differently than they actually appear, therefore all sales are final on custom color orders.
