Snow Retention System
Innovative System Permits Installation On Virtually Any Standing Seam Metal Roof

Sno Gem® Inc., a snow retention manufacturer, recently introduced the Sno Blockade™ snow retention system to provide the architectural community with another permanent and more aesthetically pleasing solution for snow and ice on standing seam metal roofing.

Sno Blockade offers a choice between a 1-inch or a 2-inch bar, available in standard mill finish aluminum material or painted in either a powder coating or Kynar finish. Sno Blockade fastens to almost any standing seam metal roofing system, employing the company’s WaveLock™ technology with three points of attachment without penetration in conjunction with the Sno Blockade clamp. Sno Blockade’s Silver Bullet set screws include a rounded “bullet” tip to maximize strength without compromising the paint finish or the material.

To reduce melting snow and ice from sliding underneath the bar of the Sno Blockade system, the company offers the Blockade Plate™, a recommended accessory installed on the upslope side of the bar. The standard Blockade Plate width is three inches, but custom sizes are available.
