Why SnoRail?

When snow accumulations begin to melt, the result can be extremely unfortunate as the wave of snow slides off the roof dumping tons of snow onto anything below. It can damage adjacent roofs, gutters, landscape, vehicles and cause injury or death to passers-by. Our standing seam roof snow gurads dramatically reduce these risks associated with snow falling from the rooftop, maintaining the clean lines of the roof and lasting as long as the metal roof itself! The SnoRail snow guard rail system can be designed and engineered on a site-specific basis.

Snow Rail

Architects and roof designers agree: The clean lines, cylindrical shapes and high-tech look of our snow guard rail systems present an attractive solution to snow retention problems! They function without cluttering the lines of the roof.

With up to six times the strength of adhesively-mounted devices, and without the high labor costs and inconsistencies of soldered snow guards, S-5!® offers the perfect, long term, dependable solution for traditional standing seam and sheet copper roofing.

SnoRail snow guard rail systems are mechanically attached with S-5-ASF and S-5-BSF aluminum or brass clamps utilizing our round-point setscrews—designed not to “pin” or “fix” the roof panels to the building, leaving thermal movement unrestricted. The snow rail clamps are precision-machined from aircraft quality materials, not cast or plastic. All related hardware is non-ferrous, compatible stainless steel or brass for lasting performance.
