VentSaver HD Component Dimensions VentSaver HD With Fallen Tree

Introduced in 2002, the original VentSaver products are metal roof snow protection devices that were specifically designed with vent pipes, chimneys, and roof masts in mind.

Vent pipes and chimneys are some of the most commonly damaged items caused by sliding snow and ice on sloped metal roofs. Amazingly enough, their protection is often neglected and forgotten until it is too late! Snow guards can protect the vents and chimneys but are only effective if used in an overall pattern across the entire roof. The VentSaver is the ultimate stand-alone or additional vent pipe and chimney protection solution! The VentSaver HD includes a wing kit that adds an extra layer of protection. Use the VentSaver on your metal roof to add support and divert snow and ice away from vent pipes, chimneys, and masts.

VentSaver HD (Heavy Duty) Vent Pipe and Chimney Protection From Sliding Snow and Ice!

A FAQ Page from the SEO Rich Snippets App

VentSaver vent protectors are metal support brackets for metal roofs that help prevent crushed vent pipes, chimneys, and broken masts while adding support and strength to your pipes. During snow slides, the VentSaver's unique fin design slices through compacted ice and snow, spreading it around the pipe. The manufacturer uses high-quality, non-corrosive aluminum to make the VentSaver. It features stainless steel hardware and an aircraft cable or a metal band. This product mechanically fastens to screw-down metal panels into a structural support or blocking. If this is not possible, customers can utilize our SD VentSaver Mounting Plate for installation. The SS Ventsaver Plate can also be attached to a standing seam metal roof without any seam penetrations.

The heavy-duty VentSaver HD has an 18" long fin with a 14" to 16" tall profile, compared to the VentSaver EZ's 12" long fin with a 9" to 12" tall profile.

Every sloped roof in an area with winter precipitation should have a properly built snow guard system. A VentSaver with one of these systems will give your roof the best possible defense. Using snow retention in an isolated location, such as above a chimney or vent pipe, is never recommended. The vent pipe and the roof's panels and structure may sustain damage from isolated placements that are overloaded and fail. VentSavers split snow and ice around a chimney, vent pipe, or stack pipe. A metal roof snow guard keeps snow from sliding off the roof's surface.

We advise using either our SS VentSaver Plate for Standing Seam roofs or our SD VentSaver Plate for Screw Down roofs when your vent pipe or chimney runs parallel to a seam. These plates give the VentSavers additional structural stability and give installers a greater surface area for flexible positioning.

The VentSaver Height Extender is an optional accessory strongly advised for extreme snow conditions. This product adds height and structural support to VentSaver products for vent pipes and chimneys with a standing profile of roughly 23" to 25".

About VentSaver

In 2002, Rick Long revolutionized the industry with the patented VentSaver FB-151 and VentSaver P-383 stack and stove pipe snow guards. These products became essential as customers often misapplied snow guards in isolated areas that are prone to failure. VentSaver snow diverters effectively maintain vent stack pipes and chimneys on the roof. They have a fin and cable for support, so they divert snow and ice away from the pipes. In 2010, the VentSaver HD, designed for heavy snow regions, was released and gained rapid popularity. The SS VentSaver kit introduced non-penetrating attachment to standing seam metal roofs. VentSaver EZ replaced older FB-151 and P-383 models in 2020. In 2023, VentSaver Extreme arrived to address issues with taller, wider stove pipes, ensuring enhanced protection.
