S-5! 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.
When snow accumulations begin to melt, the result can be
catastrophic as the blanket of snow avalanches off the roof dumping tons of
snow onto anything in its path. It can damage landscape, gutters, adjacent
roofs, vehicles and cause injury or death to passers-by. SnoFence retention
systems dramatically reduce these risks associated with rooftop avalanches,
maintaining the clean lines of the roof and lasting as long as the roof itself!
SnoFence can be designed and engineered on a site-specific basis.
Architects and roof designers agree: The clean lines,
cylindrical shapes and high-tech look of S-5! SnoFence 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.
SnoFence 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 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.
