    Model #SGAR Gough 24 Ounce Copper Snow Guards - A heavy-duty solid copper snowguard that's nailed or screwed into place during the installation of new slate roofs. Face is 3 1/4 inches wide and 1 3/8 inches high.

    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 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.

    "Retrofit" snowguards are  designed to be added to already existing slate roofs. Regular snow  guards like these are designed to be installed on new slates roofs when the slate  is being installed.

    FOR RAFTER LENGTHS UP TO 16 FEET:  Traditionally, in the Midwest for over 60 years, SnoGuards have been  installed 30 inches to 36 inches 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. In the northeast, snowguards are  typically installed at every other slate horizontally, and staggered at  every horizontal slate course or every other horizontal slate course vertically, with 3 horizontal rows minimum.

    FOR 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. Increased  snow load in some states requires additional SnoGuards per square farther up the roof.

    This is a heavy-duty solid copper "retrofit" snowguard that's slid into place under existing slates and hooked on an existing slating nail on an already installed slate roof. 16 3/8 inches long, 14 inch reach, face is 3 1/4 inches wide and 1 3/8 inches high.This product is also available in custom lengths. Call us at 814-786-9085 for custom orders.

    This retrofit snowguard has a longer 
    reach than the Berger Brothers #100 series by a full inch. This allows the snowguard to be more easily used on roofs with 24 inch long slates and on graduated slate roofs.

    This is a  good all-around retrofit snowguard for use on roofs with any size slate. The solid, low-profile face prevents the bending and twisting  often seen on snowguards with higher profiles, while still retaining  snow loads. "Retrofit" snowguards are designed to be added to already  existing slate roofs. Regular snow guards are designed to be installed  on new slates roofs when the slate is being installed.

    FOR RAFTER  LENGTHS UP TO 16 FEET: Traditionally, in the Midwest for over 60 years, SnoGuards have been installed 30 inches to 36 inches on center in each row, with 3 staggered rows beginning above the outside wall at the eave. In the northeast, snowguards are typically installed at every other slate horizontally, and staggered at every horizontal slate course or every other horizontal  slate course vertically, with 3 horizontal rows minimum.

    FOR  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. Increased snow load in some states require additional SnoGuards  per square farther up the roof.

    Designed to be installed on slate by nail application (#100S-NA) or asphalt shingle roofs (#100S-AS) during the installation of the roofing. All BRONZE GUARD® products are cast in pure tin bronze, using only virgin metals to assure the highest quality alloy. Select below: Slate application or Asphalt application.


    A  traditional spike style snow guard, from a design first patented in 1899. The Model #100 is historically accurate for period restorations, but is just as appropriate for new construction or retrofit application on existing slate roofs. Because of its low profile, this model is more appropriate for residential usage. The Model #100 is for applications on slate, shake, and shingle roofs, and is designed to fit between adjacent pieces of roof material, so that only the casting is visible  above the roof surface.


    This snow guard is also available in a retrohook style for installing on existing slate roofs.

    The #100 snowguard has a smaller face than the #200, and is less expensive. View the 200 standard.

    Designed to be installed on existing slate roofs. Slide this snowguard in between two existing slates until the top of the snow guard hooks over the top of the underlying slate (see video). This  spike style snow guard is fabricated from the same sheet metal  components as the #100, but the #200 casting is 30% larger than the  #100. Both products are equally strong and effective in their capacity  to hold snow on the roof, but the Model #200 is more appropriate to larger scale buildings, or where the roof material is thicker than usual, such as tile roofing.

    All  BRONZE GUARD® products are cast in pure tin bronze, using only virgin metals to assure the highest quality alloy. The castings are produced  locally by old-world craftsmen using state of the art equipment to assure that each casting is of consistent quality. The final assembly is  done by hand, using only solid copper rivets, so that each finished  product is of uniform quality.

    This snow guard is also available in a standard style for new roof installations.
