Download the Specifications Form: PDF or Word DocumentThis Snow Guard is made of 24 ounce cold rolled copper. The flat copper base allows the guard to hug close to the tile. It weighs 5 ounces, is 8 1/2 inches long, has a 3 1/4 inch wide face, and protrudes up from roof about 2 1/8 inches. Also available in lead coated copper or powder-coated at additional cost. Custom sizes are available as well.
This item requires at least one week lead time and is non-returnable.
If you need a longer snowguard, we also have the SGSP+3, which is 3 inches longer (select option below).
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.

Installation Details:RAFTER LENGTHS UP TO 16 FEET *
Traditionally, for over 80 years, in residential applications, SnoGuards have been installed 30" to 36" on center in each row with 3 staggered rows beginning above the outside wall at the eave, i.e. approximately one per linear foot of gutter line. Tile roofs may need two additional rows of snow guards for this length rafter.
RAFTER LENGTHS OVER 16 FEET :
The number of rows is increased with rafter lengths over 16 feet and with roof pitches greater than 6:12. Call or write for details.
Increased snow load in some areas, drifting, vibration, proximity to other buildings, etc., may require additional SnoGuards per square farther up the roof.
