SnoRail™

Offered in aluminum or brass, our snow fences are designed to manage snow migration on standing seam metal roofing. Their clean lines, cylindrical shapes and high-tech appearance make these snow guards the favorite choice of architects and roof designers.

SnoRail Systems Aluminum Assembly Components

The aluminum SnoRail assembly is the perfect choice for most standing seam roofing materials.

S-5-ASF Clamp
s-5-asf2

These aluminum clamps are designed to fit either vertical or horizontal seam profiles (rotating 90º) having a finished seam (thickness) dimension of .40″ or less. The clamp is specially designed for versatility on a variety of standing panel seams and profiles—both architectural and structural.

SnoPost™

The stainless SnoPost, when threaded into the clamp, provides for the addition of a second SnoRod™ about 2” above the first. This double rod configuration, called SnoFence™, and is more durable for heavier service load conditions.

S-5-AE™ and SnoPost E™

The S-5-AE clamp and SnoPost E are used at the rate of one per 50′ of assembly, and at the ends of the assembly to “fix” the SnoRod, preventing lateral movement.

SnoRod™
snorod

The stainless SnoRod is inserted through the S-5-ASF clamps, placing it just above the panel seams. Add a second SnoRod through the SnoPosts for a SnoFence system. Contact your S-5! distributor for pricing on SnoRod.

SnoRod Coupling

The coupling assures end-to-end rod alignment and continuity.

SnoClip™

SnoClips can be added to your SnoRail or SnoFence system to retard the migration of snow and ice beneath the SnoRod. More details.


SnoRail Systems Brass Assembly Components

The brass SnoRail assembly is designed for use on copper batten or standing seam roofs.

S-5-BSF Clamp
s-5-bsf2

These brass clamps are designed to fit traditional double-folded, horizontal seam profiles having a finished seam (thickness) dimension of .25” or less. The clamp is specially designed for versatility on a variety of standing panel seams and profiles—both architectural and structural. All components come with required hardware.

SnoPost
snopost-b

The brass SnoPost, when threaded into the clamp, provides for the addition of a second SnoRod about 2” above the first. This double rod configuration, called SnoFence, and is more durable for heavier service load conditions.

S-5-BE™ Clamp and SnoPost BE™
s-5-be-snopost-be2

SnoRod
snorod-b2

The brass SnoRod is inserted through the S-5-BSF clamps, placing it just above the panel seams. Add a second SnoRod through the SnoPosts for a SnoFence system. Contact your S-5! distributor for pricing on SnoRod.

SnoRod Coupling

Notes

Caution: SnoClip may not be suitable for use on 3” seams with horizontal orientation. Please call for more information.

Maintenance: SnoClip may need periodic maintenance. SnoClip may migrate laterally; this does not affect its performance. Some adjustment may be desired (a small dab of silicone can be used inside or alongside the SnoClip lock to prevent this).

Do not use SnoClip spacing greater than 24″. Custom-length SnoClips are available for special situations. Please inquire through a distributor. SnoClip should not be used with brass SnoRail/SnoFence.
