 SnowBreaker Dimensional PictureSnowBreaker Breaking Snow

The SnowBreakers are snow splitter snow guards for metal roofs.

Rather than hold the snow and ice on the roof, this product breaks it up so it can shed from the roof in smaller pieces, thus minimizing the danger. This is the best of both worlds because the snow and ice can shed the roof faster than conventional snow retention while providing a level of safety protection.

SnowBreaker Installed in a Reverse Direction
SnowBreaker Snow Guards are Reversible

When mounted with screws or SB-190 adhesive, the SnowBreaker can be installed in a reversed direction with the pointed side facing downhill, as shown above. The unit will then act as a snow retention system to catch and hold the snow and ice on the roof. This can not be achieved with the tape-on method, as the tape has limited holding strength.

SnowBreaker Snow Guards are Versatile

The SnowBreaker can be installed on both types of roofs:

Screw Down Roof with Exposed Fasteners:

You can simply screw the SnowBreaker down into a purlin or structural support below.

Standing Seam Roof:

You can install the SnowBreaker with the SB-190 adhesive or 3m tape option. (The 3M tape option will still require a bead of SB-190 around the perimeter for extra protection. We include one free tube of SB-190 with every 50 SnowBreaker 3M guards)

SnowBreaker Snow Guards are Safe for You and Your Roof

The SnowBreaker is very effective in preventing damage caused by the sudden release of snow and ice, all with less worries of overloading your roof. No other snow guard can make this claim! As the snow and ice slide on the roof, this cost-effective product minimizes the danger by slicing the frozen precipitation into small pieces so it can safely come off the roof.

SnowBreaker Snow Guards Wintertime Application

Because of the cutting edge design, it is not conducive to receiving a significant sheer load so there is a peel and stick version for installation in cooler weather. 

SnowBreaker Snow Guards: The Solution for Isolated Areas and Doorways

In theory, a snow guard can not hold snow and ice in an isolated area on a roof because the load of the frozen mass will extend to the unprotected area. This severely overloads the snow retention system and will cause premature release and eventual failure. The SnowBreaker is not designed to hold snow for very long, so this theory can be modified by placing the SnowBreaker in a 45-degree outward angle over the desired isolated area to protect. This is a huge cost savings over conventional snow guard systems that require the entire roof area to have snow retention just to protect isolated areas. Please see the Isolated Placement Guide for guidelines on isolated areas.

SnowBreaker Snow Guards Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

The SnowBreaker breaks up snow and ice when positioned with the pointed side facing up the slope, minimizing damage from snow slides. The SnowBreaker's distinctive design allows it to be used as a snow guard while facing down the roof's slope. Please adhere to the spacing recommendations for screw-down or glue-down snow guard installations when installing SnowBreakers in these ways.

Our glue-down snow guards should only be installed using Surebond SB-190 adhesive. This adhesive is the industry standard for use with polycarbonate snow guards. When Surebond SB-190 is used for installation, a solid, long-lasting bond is created between the SnowBreaker and the metal roof panel.

The 3M mounting option for our SnowBreaker snow guard is advised for use when a non-penetrating solution is needed, but the temperature is too low to achieve the proper adhesive cure times. The temperature must be at least 50 degrees (Fahrenheit) for roughly 28 days for the Surebond SB-190 adhesive to fully cure. You should remove the SnowBreakers attached with 3M adhesive and re-install them using fresh adhesive when the temperature rises.

Not all plastic snow guards are created equal. We only use 100% virgin, UV-stabilized polycarbonate made in the USA. Our polycarbonate snow guards may lose some clarity with time, but they rarely amber.

No. The SnowBreaker comes with four molded starter points, with two on either side of the guard. When using self-tapping screws, like our Master Grippers or Master Drillers, pre-drilling may be helpful but is not required. Depending on the desired configuration, use the two starter points at the top of the guard when installing.

About SnoBlox-Snojax

In the late 1970s, we embarked on a quest for an improved snow guard solution that would be non-corrosive and nearly invisible to preserve the building's aesthetic appeal. After extensive testing, we obtained a patent for Snojax®, the world's first screw-down, clear, non-corrosive, polycarbonate snow guard. In 1985, we innovated further with the release of Snojax II, the world's first glue-down polycarbonate snow guard. By 2000, we introduced two patented SnoBlox® models, "Ace" and "Deuce," offering an economical alternative and resolving the challenge of straddling minor ribs. These models boasted the industry's first patented waffled base design, enhancing adhesive bonding. In 2005, we expanded our offerings with Icejax I and Icejax II, which were validated through rigorous testing by the renowned ATI professional testing laboratory. Our Snojax®, SnoBlox®, Icejax™, and SnowCatcher™ brands are the epitome of robust snow guards in the industry, validated by comprehensive testing.
