Original Standing Seam Snow Guards are the ultimate system for standing seam roofs. Featuring SST fasteners which do not penetrate the roof, so there is no opportunity for leaks. They can be installed in any weather. They can be used stand alone as a Snow Guard or coupled with our optional Ice Bar to create an entire snow retention system.
Optional Ice Bar mounts 3/8" of an inch above the roof.
To use our Original Standing Seam as a stand alone snow guard by attaching it to the standing seam on your roof without penetrating your roofing system, you will want to order OSS Stand Alone Guard with Screws in the appropriate number you need.
To use our Original Standing Seam along with optional Ice Bar to create a snow retention system, you will need one OSS Starting Guard for each row you have, then you will want to order quantity 1 of the appropriate pan width for each panel on your roof. For each quantity 1 of the pan sections ordered, you will receive one guard with screws, along with 1 precut Ice Bar.
Example Stand Alone: You have a roof with 36 12" panels on each side. You would order 70 OSS Stand Alone Guards with Screws. 35 for Each Side.
Example 1 System: You have a roof with 36 12" panels on each side of the roof. You would order 2 OSS Starting Guards with Screws, along with quantity 68 12" Pan Sections, 34 for each side.
Example 2 System: If your run is long enough that you would need two rows on each side, you would order 4 OSS Starting Guards along with 136 12" Pan Sections, 34 per row, 2 rows per side.
