Snow Rails Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
The SnoBar system consists of a hollow, 1" x 1" square tube constructed of Gator Shield-coated galvanized steel. The ColorBar system uses an extruded 6061-T6 aluminum bar that can accommodate a color strip. Both systems can be ordered online in a mill finish over the phone or a powder-coated finish over the phone. The ColorBar must be used to span panels wider than 24" due to its superior strength.
IceStoppers are an optional add-on for standing seam rail systems. These important accessories are fastened to the back of the bar without panel penetration and stop snow and ice accumulation from sliding underneath the rails. Though they are optional, IceStoppers are at least recommended over areas where pedestrians and/or cars are present. IceStoppers can be retrofitted onto already existing SnoBar or ColorBar rail systems.
Yes, the ColorBar forms continuous interconnected rows. Standard lengths for the ColorBar system are 6' (available online) and 12' (available by phone). Your system includes the correct amount of aluminum splice plates to join your multiple bars into a continuous row while still allowing for expansion and contraction. The upper channel of the bar can be equipped with a splice connector with a single tek screw that is used to secure one side of the splice connector to the first bar while leaving the other end freely floating.
No, the SnoBar is not a continuous row. It requires small gaps between the bars for expansion and contraction. Standard lengths for the Snobar system are 6' (available online) and 12' (available by phone). Your system includes the correct amount of black plastic end caps to seal both sides of each bar. This will prevent moisture, debris, and pests from getting inside the tube. These caps also help to hide field cut edges during the install.
A properly installed snow rail system shouldn't result in roof leaks. Use our foam gaskets in conjunction with screws that include neoprene washers. Some of our customers will decide to use a bead of neutral drying, cold weather silicone to outline the colorbracket bases. But you are not required to complete this step.
Almost any style of sloped roofing can be equipped with SnoBar or ColorBar snow rails. We offer systems for a variety of roofing types, including, but not limited to: Standing Seam roofing, Screw Down panels, PBR roofs, Wavy Corrugated sheets, asphalt shingles, single-ply TPO Membrane, and natural or synthetic Slate.
