Berger AP400/516 Snowguards
Berger AP400 and AP516 snowguards are non-penetrating mill finish aluminum devices which have been engineered specifically for use with more popular structural and non-structural pre-formed and architectural metal roof systems. They're secured without glues or sealants, utilizing custom milled stainless steel set screws to clamp them in place. They're produced in cast aluminum and are available in two different seam widths and heights for the same price, and can be custom painted (see below).
AP400: Seams up to 3/8 inch thick & 1 1/2 inches high
AP516: Seams up to 1/2 inch thick & 1 1/2 inches high
These snowguards do not restrict thermal movement. The deep throats permit them to be secured directly without damaging caps or compressing internal gasketing or sealant pockets. The 6 inch wide, deep blade design makes it particularly effective in retaining snow with the higher seams and wider panel widths common in pre-formed architectural roofing.
AP400M/AP516M: Mill Finished Cast Aluminum. "Mill finish" is the natural appearance of the aluminum as it comes from the rolling mill or the extrusion mill. It is "as is" with no external mechanical or chemical finishing.
AP400E/AP516E: E-Coat Epoxy Primer (Medium Gloss Black) - requires a final color coat after purchase.
AP400C/AP516C: Painted in your choice of 9 custom colors; Matte Black, Colonial Red, Dark Bronze, Forest Green, Hartford Green, Medium Bronze, Mansard Brown, Charcoal Gray, Slate Gray (see color chart above.) Paint requires a 3 week lead time. Please provide the color choice, name of the roofing manufacturer and the color of the panel in the customer notes when placing your order. (No cancellations or returns.)
