Free Instant Snow Guard Spacing Layouts for Snow Guards on Metal Roofs

Snow and ice can avalanche dangerously off of glossy coated metal roofing. Using a spacing layout, snow guards are installed to help prevent the dangerous slide of snow and ice. Our approach to snow guard placement involves placing snow guards throughout the entire roof area to keep snow and ice from shifting initially. Once frozen precipitation looses its grip on a metal roof and begins a down-hill slide, it is exposed to inertia and as such, a row of guards placed along the eave or gutter edge of the roof is not always enough protection against dangerous avalanche. If you hold snow and ice in place with an effective snow guard layout, you evenly distribute the load on the roof and the snow guards and the threat of avalanche is effectively eliminated. An evenly distributed snow load will preserve the long-term integrity of the structure and snow guard pattern.
