When should SnoClips™, X-Clips™, or DualClips™ be used and how many are needed?

10/4/2017

SnoClip, X-Clip, or DualClip will stop or retard the passage of snow and ice beneath the snow retention cross member. If other flashing elements (e.g., eave guttering accomplishes this purpose) are utilized, then it may not be necessary—so its use is somewhat discretionary, depending upon the eave details and project specifics. We recommend it in most cases. In general, one SnoClip per panel on the first row of snow retention will suffice. When seam spacing is >24″, two or more SnoClips per panel are recommended.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: SnoClip design has changed. SnoClip must now slide on from the end of the ColorGard® cross member. Be sure to slide SnoClip onto assembly before attaching cross member to clamps.
