Screw Down ColorBar Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

An optimized snow rail system layout typically incorporates multiple rows up the roof slope to help distribute the weight evenly. However, factors such as panel types, seam spacing, roof slopes, snow loads, and attachment methods can significantly impact the required layout. Differences in these variables can dramatically influence the layout requirements, so it's essential to refer to the spacing charts for more detailed guidance when designing an effective snow rail system.

The SnoBar system features a 1" x 1" square, hollow tube of GatorShield-coated galvanized steel. In contrast, the ColorBar system uses an extruded 6061-T6 aluminum bar that can accept a color strip. Both systems can be purchased online in a mill finish or special ordered with a powder coated finish by phone. The ColorBar's superior strength allows it to span panels over 24 inches.

Roof leaks can be avoided by properly installing a snow rail system. Be sure to use screws with neoprene washers and our foam gaskets. Some customers also outline the colorbracket bases with a bead of neutral curing and cold weather silicone, which is not required.

Our website offers mill finish, 6-foot SnoBar, and ColorBar kits ready for immediate purchase. If you require longer linear footage or a custom powder-coated finish, we have 12-foot bars shipped in wooden crates via LTL. Our experts can provide price quotes for these systems within 24-48 hours.

When mounted with Tall ColorBrackets on a screw-down roof panel, the ColorBar sits approximately 2-1/8" off the low panel flat. 

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.
