Why SnowRail/SnoFence?

Architects and roof designers agree: The clean lines, cylindrical shapes and high-tech look of our SnoRail and 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.

The SnoRail and SnoFence systems are mechanically attached with patented S-5-ASF and S-5-BSF brass or aluminum clamps utilizing our patented 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 high quality materials not cast or plastic. All related hardware is non-ferrous, compatible stainless steel or brass for lasting performance.

These are special order items and require additional time to ship.

S-5-ASF

The S-5-ASF is designed for SnoRail™and SnoFence™ applications where the roof panels are steel, aluminum or zinc

S-5-BSF

The S-5-BSF is designed for use in SnoRail™ & SnoFence™ systems when applied on copper roof panels. The solid brass components look great and don’t cause undo corrosion.

SnoRod

The S-5-ASF is designed for SnoRail™and SnoFence™ applications where the roof panels are steel, aluminum or zinc.

SnoRod Brass

The S-5-BSF is designed for use in SnoRail™ & SnoFence™ systems when applied on copper roof panels. The solid brass components look great and don’t cause undo corrosion.

SnoPost

With an assembled SnoRail System, simply thread one SnoPost™ into the S-5-ASF or S-5-BSF clamp, and then add a second SnoRod 2” above the first. The resulting double rod assembly is called a SnoFence. For end conditions, use the SnoPostE
