Berger SG2 Bronze or Iron Snowguard

SNOW GUARD - Berger Model SG2 Bronze or Galvanized Iron
NOTE: Returned Berger snowguards require a 25% restocking fee, so make sure you're getting the right ones!
Select metal type below.

Five inches wide, 2 3/4 inches high. The riveted bar is 1/8 inches x 1 inch x 12 inches long and goes 8 inches under the slate and between the slate course.  Installation technique is similar to the Sieger snow rail bracket in that the underlying slate is notched to allow for the snowguard strap (

These snow guards are also suited for wood shake, tile and mineral surfaced shingles. Excellent in areas that receive heavy snows! This snow guard is to be installed during the slate roof installation - it is not a retrofit model.

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.

The following recommendation is for a typical application, slate size 12 inches x 18 inches, with a 7.5 inches exposure, and a roof pitch of 12/12 (45 degrees). This is a typical example, and can be used and adjusted for differing conditions such as high snow loads, or drifting conditions. For this example, the rafter length is 18 feet.

Guards shall be installed in horizontal rows parallel to the eave. The first row shall be installed on the third course of slate, and spaced no more than 24 inches apart in the rows. Subsequent rows shall be spaced 30 inches vertically (4th slate course) and the guards offset 12 inches from the course below. Install 6 horizontal rows. The preceding technical information is for informational purposes only and is not intended to replace the manufacturer's recommendations for a particular project. We will provide layouts upon receipt of roof plan with elevations. Manufacturer is not responsible for improper installation, or installation in insufficient quantities.
