Berger SG2 Snowguard
Berger Brothers Model #SG2 heavy duty snowguard available in bronze (SGBR2) or galvanized iron (SGML2). Five inches wide, 2 3/4 inches high. The riveted bar is 1/8 inches x 1 inch x 12 inches long and goes 8 inches under the slate. When installing, the underlying slate is notched to allow for the snow guard strap.
These snowguards are also suited for wood shake, tile, and mineral surfaced shingles. Excellent in areas that receive heavy snows! This snow guard is to be installed during the slate roof installation - it is not a retrofit model.
Snow guards should be installed where the potential for the sudden sliding of ice and snow can be hazardous to people or property below. Falling snow is a life safety issue, and careful consideration of liability issues should be part of a carefully designed roof system in all areas prone to winter snow and ice.
