Standing Seam SnoBar Important Disclaimer

This snow retention system is not designed to be installed in isolated areas such as just over doorways, stack pipes, chimneys, or partial roof sections. Upper roofs, if any, must not be allowed to shed snow and ice onto lower roof areas where this product is being used. All upper roof areas must have a snow retention system in place before using this product on lower roof areas. Always obtain a manufacturer's quantity and spacing recommendation before purchasing and installing this product. If this system is not used as per the manufacturer's recommendation, severe roof panel damage, personal injury, and/or death may occur.

The following warranty is made in lieu of all other warranties expressed or implied. Recommendations for proper use of the product are based on tests believed to be reliable. Any goods proven to be defective due to materials will be replaced, or purchase price refunded, but in no event shall the manufacturer be responsible for damages in excess of the purchase price. User shall determine the suitability of the product for its intended use and assumes all risks of its use or handling. 1. All loads incurred by the SnoBar will be transferred to the panels. Therefore, proper panel attachment to substrate/structure is necessary to prevent roof panels from sliding under snow load. New and existing structures must be evaluated to insure they can withstand retained snow loads. (In instances where there is an overhang at the eave edge, it is imperative to make sure that the overhang can hold the accumulated loading, otherwise the first row of SnoBar should occur at the bearing wall.) 2. It is not recommended to place the SnoBar System in isolated areas such as doorways, vents and partial roof areas. Please call for special design considerations in those areas. 3. Consider whether your roof system and/or substrates (felts or membranes) run the risk of ice damming with the addition of this type of system. 4. The SnoBar Clamp System requires the roof panel to be a min. of 24 GA. steel and have a seam height of at least 1". Clamp spacing cannot exceed 24"O.C. Clamp spacing varies dependign on seam spacing (12" o.c. up to 42" o.c). Clamps should be placed at every seam, so that the load is distributed evenly to every roof panel. It is not recommended to use a clamp type system when the roof uses a seperate seam cover or batten. 5. The U-Bracket System requires a purlin or structural support beneath it to mount to. 6. No snow retention system is capable of retaining 100% of snow and ice from falling off the roof. 7. Designer/Arhitect, Installer, or Owner of the project should have knowledge of the local snow loads, climatic conditions, roof slope, roof orientation, and roof design prior to installing SnoBar. 8. After considering the above factors, the determine lineal feet of SnoBar required is based on length of panels, roof slope, snow loading and areas needing protection from falling snow. (Call SnoBlox-SnoJax for clamp and bar loading values.) 9. It is the sole responsibility fo the Designer/Architect, Installer, or Owner to assess the suitability of using the SnoBar System based on the above design considerations. SnoBlox-SnoJax or any or its subsidiaries, or Riddell & Company, Inc and Action Manufacturing are under no liability if failure occurs from improper installation, improper set screw torque, improper panel attachment, improper roof system installation, improper use of the SnoBar system or under designed system placement of the SnoBar system. This is a special-order item, thus All Sales are Final. Sorry, no returns accepted.

    Couldn’t be happier!

    I was looking online for something to stop the snow and ice from building up on the edge of the roof but was not fond of screwing directly in to the sheet metal and this product seemed like the perfect solution! I ordered 2 six ft sections and the shipping was very fast. All the parts are heavy duty and clamping onto the roof seams was a breeze. I was thinking it was going to take me a few hours but I had the bars on in less than an hour and everything fit like a glove! The instructions were clear and complete with color photos and very professionally done. Fast shipping and excellent product. Definitely 5 stars from me!

About SnoBar-ColorBar

Don Drew and Dick Riddell invented SnoBar in 1992, making it the original standing seam-mounted snow rail. It was unique enough to earn a patent in 1993. Jim Huff installed the initial version, named Sno Horse, at the Denver International Airport in 1992. Jim Huff devised a way to make an aluminum bar with a channel to slide a piece of metal into the face plate based on a concept from name plates commonly found on office desks. The Sno Horse product later became known as the ColorBar, which features quick installation with a patented drop-in clamp to attach the bar. Roof clamps to attach the bar are available in stainless steel or aluminum. Standing seam metal roofs have utilized the SnoBar system longer than any other snow rail product. 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.
