SnoBar

The Professional's Choice

Action Manufacturing SnoBar, LLC, pioneered the use of seam mounted snow guard rail systems for metal roofs in the United States back in 1992! The innovative, patented stainless-steel clamp allows for the bar to be top loaded. This makes it the fastest installing bar system with the least amount of parts.

A properly engineered snow rail system utilizes continuous lengths of bar horizontally across the entire roof. These bars are secured to the roof using non-penetrating, stainless steel seam clamps on standing seam roofs or mechanically fastened, aluminum brackets on exposed fastener roofs.

SnoBar systems can be installed year-round and typically require fewer rows than traditional pad style snow guards. The components are non-corrosive and have been extensively lab and field tested. Our designed systems are backed by a Lifetime Warranty against failure. Unlike some competitors, this warranty is included at no additional cost! Let us design a custom SnoBar or ColorBar system for you today!

SnoBar Snow Guards For Standing Seam Metal Roofs

Stainless Steel RoofClamp or Aluminum RCT Roof Clamp Bar Attachment

27" Sample Kit
6' kits with Stainless-Steel Clamps
6' kits with Aluminum RoofClamps and 3" RCB-3 Swivel Brackets
The 6' kits are in stock and ship in cardboard boxes via ground shipping. Larger orders are usually sold in 12' bar sections and ship in wood crates via LTL freight.

SnoBar is our standard duty bar and is typically specified for standing seam metal roof panels up to 24" wide. The 16-gauge bar is 1" square and is available in either Gatorshield® coated galvanized steel or can be custom ordered in stainless steel. Both options offer superior corrosion resistance. The standard Stainless-Steel Bar Clamps are crafted from 12-gauge stainless steel and use two industry-leading, low torque, stainless steel "Cup Tip" set screws. The Aluminum RCT Roof Clamp is manufactured from 6063T-5 mill aluminum and uses three "Cup Tip" set screws. Because our patented clamps are top loading, installation is faster and easier than other systems!

The SnoBar and ColorBar are the only metal roof snow retention bar systems that use a top-loading stainless-steel clamp as a standard method of attachment on standing seam roofs. This is the type of clamp that has been used on the original SnoBar system invented and patented in 1992. The aluminum RCT RoofClamp offers a universal fit for most standing seam panels, including bulb and t-seam. Please see our Clamp Comparison Chart. The unmatched versatility of the aluminum swivel brackets allows the bar to be angled in converging hips and valleys. The RCB-3 Bracket can be swiveled up to 31 degrees!

Our mill finish snow retention systems are in stock and can be ordered online in 6' kits. Custom powder coating is available for superior color matching to your panels! SnoBar systems can be designed for most roof panels and roof types. We also have specialized mounts for 2.67 corrugated panels, membrane roofs and shingle roof coverings too!

ColorBar - Mill Finish With ColorStripsOur 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 "Cup Tip Stainless Steel Screws". These specially designed screws permanently anchor to the seam.
