Sun Burst SnowCatcher Snow Guard Product Description:

The 16 gauge Mill Sun Burst SnowCatcher is a decorative metal snow guard that is made from 304-grade stainless steel. The large forward-mounted wide face provides a generous holding field, and the 1.5” wide base fits most 36” panels with 9” or 12" rib spacing. Professional test results demonstrated that the Sun Burst SnowCatcher held up to 3945 pounds of force pushing against the face of the guard before the method of attachment failed. The original shape of the SnowCatcher was retained throughout the entire test. The durable construction does not get brittle like cheap fabricated cast guards. Included in the box is a 1/16" thick adhesive-backed V742 CCF PVC foam sealer for each SnowCatcher purchased.

Sun Burst SnowCatcher Snow Guard Popularity: 

This product is especially popular for snow retention using metal roofs that desire the aesthetic appeal of a starburst design that represents diverging rays of light. If ordering 100 pieces or more, this product can be powder-coated to compliment or match your roof, please call 800-766-5291 for pricing. 

Sun Burst SnowCatcher Snow Guard Application:

Screw down applications only. SnoBlox-SnoJax does not recommend adhesive mounting this guard. Placement in just isolated areas such as chimneys, doorways, vents and partial roof sections is NOT recommended. Screws are sold separately. Slight variations in mill finish are not cause for rejection.

Please refer to the spacing guideline page for proper snow guard placement.

Sun Burst SnowCatcher Snow Guard Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

The SnowCatcher, a testament to our commitment to quality, is crafted from 16 gauge 304-grade stainless steel, a material renowned for its durability. It is proudly manufactured in the United States of America using American steel. Unlike some competitors who prioritize cost-cutting by sourcing materials and manufacturers from overseas, we stand by our 'Made in the USA' products. The SnowCatcher is not just a snow guard; it's a symbol of reliability and longevity.

Our decorative Sun Burst SnowCatcher, a true testament to the saying "looks can be deceiving," has been rigorously tested in the laboratory. It boasts a rating of 3945 lbs, surpassing even our standard stainless steel SnowCatcher, which tested at 3923 lbs. So, don't let its elegant appearance fool you. This snow guard is a force to be reckoned with, providing a strong and dependable snow retention solution.

The SnowCatcher snow guard, designed with your convenience in mind, features three pre-drilled holes in the base. The two holes near the guard's face are a must for installation. During the optional powder coating process, the guard hangs from the third hole at the opposite end of the base. This third hole serves as an additional mounting point for added strength and is a testament to the SnowCatcher's versatility.

Only use our decorative metal snow guards in areas with a ground snow load of 45 psf or less. Contact your local zoning or building permit office to clarify your snow load. Before placing an order, it is best to consult with an architect or engineer. For SnowCatchers, please see our recommended spacing guideline page. Please complete the SnoBar Price Quote Form if your snow load exceeds 45 psf.

Powder-coating allows the stainless steel Sun Burst SnowCatcher to be color-matched. When requesting a quote for a custom color match, we require a physical sample. We will generate a quote once we find an appropriate match. Powder coating orders typically require a 3–4 week manufacturing lead time. We don't keep colored SnowCatchers on hand. Customers can order the SnowCatchers in mill finish and have them powder-coated locally for a faster turnaround. They can also paint them when they arrive.

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.
