Screw Down SnoBar Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

If you install a snow rail system correctly, roof leaks should not occur. Ensure you use screws with neoprene washers and pair them with our foam gaskets. Some customers opt to outline the perimeter of the colorbracket bases with a bead of neutral curing, cold weather silicone, but this step is not mandatory.

Gatorshield galvanized steel tubing is an enhanced version of the original Flo-Coat product. It utilizes the same cutting-edge manufacturing process but with a 50% increase in pure Western-grade zinc. It provides superior corrosion protection and allows you to easily paint or powder coat the tubes for aesthetic purposes, requiring minimal preparation. Additionally, the cold-forming method used to produce GatorShield results in bars with greater strength than rival products, typically exhibiting a yield strength of at least 50ksi and a tensile strength of 55ksi.

The SnoBar system features black plastic endcaps that seal the ends of the bars. These low-density polyethylene caps can withstand temperatures up to 150°F (66°C). They give the bars a clean, finished look while keeping out pests, rodents, and the environment. When field cuts are required, two caps per bar are needed to conceal the exposed cut edges on painted or powder-coated systems.

The fasteners for the Screw Down rail system are all self-tapping screws. These self-tapping tek screws secure the ColorBar to the back of the ColorBrackets. The same tek screws fasten the splice connectors between the ColorBars, creating a continuous run. Depending on the material of the roof structure and purlins, the ColorBrackets use either 1.5" Master Drillers (for metal purlins) or 2" Master Grippers (for wood purlins).

The ColorBrackets have six pre-drilled holes. These should face up the slope. A typical installation pattern uses three holes in an alternating "S" shape. You can add more screws to the remaining holes for extra holding strength. The additional mounting points are helpful when you can't attach them to purlins, and the only support is the wood decking. Snow rails must never be mechanically fastened only to the metal roof panels. Additional structure is required.

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.
