SnoBar

 

Professionals Choice

A properly engineered rail system utilizes continuous lengths of bar across the entire length of the roof.  These bars are secured to the roof using non-penetrating, stainless steel seam clamps for standing seam roofs or mechanically fastened, aluminum brackets for exposed fastener roofs. We should know because we pioneered the use of seam mounted snow retention systems in the United States way back in 1992! 

The innovative SnoBar clamp remains the only patented, stainless steel clamp that allows for the bar to be top loaded.  This allows for the fastest install times and fewer parts.      

SnoBar systems can be installed year round and typically require fewer rows than a traditional pad style snow guard system.  SnoBar components are non-corrosive and have all been extensively lab and field tested.  Our systems are backed by the industry's only Lifetime Warranty against failure, included at no additional cost on designed systems.   Let us design a custom SnoBar or ColorBar system for you today!

The Products

SnoBar

 

Choose Between Mill Finish or Custom Powder Coated

(Image shows Custom Powder Coated)

SnoBar is our standard duty bar and is typically specified for seams up to 16" wide.  The bar is 1" square available in either 16 gauge clearcoated galvanized steel or custom ordered  stainless steel.  Both options offer superior corrosion resistance.  SnoBar can be shipped in mill finish or can be custom powder coated for superior color matching to your panels!  A SnoBar system can be designed for most roof panels and roof types, we have specialized mounts for membrane and shingle mounting too!  

Let us custom design a system for your project today!  Our systems include all the bars, clamps, hardware, instructions, and customer support to get the job done right!  Have a question?  Call us at 800-766-5291.

ColorBar

Choose Between 3 Finish Options.  Mill Finish, Mill With ColorStrips, or Custom Powder Coat

(Image shows Mill Finish With ColorStrips)

ColorBar is our heavy duty, structural aluminum bar typically used with heavier snow loads or seams wider than 16".  The strength of the bar is the backbone of any rail system and this one is used regularly on seams up to 42" wide.  It weighs 40% more per foot than the competition's bar thanks to our superior deflection strength!   

ColorBar is designed to accept optional 2” ColorStrips for a fast, economical color match.  We design systems for most roof panels and roof types, we have specialized mounts for membrane and shingle mounting too!

Two Bar Mount

Available for both SnoBar and ColorBar

Our exclusive Double-Bar Mounts are perfect for projects that require a two bar system in their specifications. This innovative mounting system allows SnoBar/ColorBar products to be safely installed on standing seam roofs without leaks, damage, or voided warranties. Constructed from extruded aluminum and utilizing the proven power of our patented RoofClamps, these mounts can be used for new or existing roofs. Attachment is achieved with our "Cupped Tip Stainless Steel Screws". These specially designed screws permanently anchor to the seam. They require 90/in.lbs of torque, whereas round tip set screws can require up to 180/in.lbs. Less torque means more efficient holding power and less chance of damaging the seam. Installation is fast and easy, while avoiding costly damage to the roof's finish.

IceStoppers

Available for both SnoBar and ColorBar

IceStoppers prevent sheets of snow and ice from sliding under the bar.  They mount to the upslope side of the bar with 2 self-drilling tek screws that are hidden from view once installed.  The "foot" prevents them from bending under the bar and they don't slide side to side or allow snow to ramp over the bar like other products.  They are always recommended, especially over pedestrians areas.  They can be easily added to new SnoBar and ColorBar systems or retrofitted for existing systems.  They can also be custom powder coated to match the rest of the SnoBar and ColorBar components.
