Why SnoFence?

When snow accumulations begin to melt, the result can be disastrous as the blanket of snow falls in waves off the roof dumping large amounts of snow onto anything in its path. It can damage vehicles, gutters, adjacent roofs, landscapes and cause injury or death to passers-by. The SnoFence metal roof snow guard rail systems significantly reduce these risks associated with rooftop avalanches, maintaining the clean lines of the roof and lasting as long as the roof itself! These roof snow fence systems can be designed and engineered on a site-specific basis.
