SlateGuard is the only polycarbonate snow guard for slate roofs. The strap is constructed from heavy 16 gauge 304 stainless steel and is easily hooked into the nail or under the existing slate shingle. The stainless and polycarbonate construction is guaranteed to last a lifetime and is virtually invisible when installed. The clear SlateGuard is usually in stock but larger quantities on hand may sometime be limited. Larger orders and colors usually require approximately 3 -4 weeks for delivery. Please call for availability.

No, the Slateguard is not kept in stock. This snow guard is produced on a made-to-order basis. The typical lead time for production is approximately 3-5 weeks. Lead times are subject to change based on order quantities.
The SlateGuard is made for roofs in geographic locations with ground snow loads of 45PSF or lower. Make sure to check out our spacing guidelines page for spacing recommendations based on your roof’s pitch. Any projects with a ground snow load that is higher than 45psf should have a snow rail system installed. Both the SnoBar and ColorBar systems can be fitted with custom brackets for shingle and slate roofing. To obtain a quote for this type of system, please fill our our Bar Quote Request Form. Once the form is completed, a representative will be in touch.
If installing at the same as the roofing material, this snow guard can be screwed down into a solid substrate below instead of attaching to the shingle/slate mounting hardware. If installing SlateGuard on asphalt shingles, this method of attachment is recommended as opposed to hooking into short roofing nails.
