Thybar Corp.: Snow Guard
Company: Thybar Corp.
Product: Snow Dam
Description: The Snow Dam helps to prevent avalanches from snow or ice buildup on metal roofs. It permits water from melted snow to run off roofs while safely retaining up to 2,000 pounds of unmelted snow and ice. The aluminum guard fastens to the standing seam (not to the flat portion of the roof panel), allowing panels to move with expansion and contraction. It features pre-punched holes that allow it to be securely fastened to the standing seam. Tape mastic is used between the base and the standing seam to assure a watertight seal. Installation can be done at any time during the life of the roof. The product is fabricated from 0.08-inch aluminum with all-welded construction.
