New Snowguard Installation Animations Available From Alpine SnowGuards®
Morrisville, VT - Alpine SnowGuards®, a leading manufacturer and distributor of a variety of types of snowguards for metal roofs and other roof systems, has introduced two new animations that illustrate how their SnowMax and PP145 products are installed.
Fabricated from aircraft-grade aluminum, SnowMax is described by Alpine as the strongest snow management system on the market. It is also cost-effective because bracket spacing can now be increased up to 48” on center. Configurations are available for standing seam, corrugated, and membrane roofing, and all three models accept a color insert strip, offering the option of matching the color of the roofing material. A solar snow management solution, Solar SnowMax, is also available.

The PP145 two-or-three pipe snow management system utilizes the same patented, watertight compression technology as the line of solar roof mounts manufactured by Alpine's sister company, EcoFasten Solar - it's a solution that's so simple that it's called Simple Seal. Simple Seal is an EPDM rubber bushing specifically designed to fit inside the milled counter-sinks on the underside of the PP145 bracket.
Measuring 6” long x 4” wide at the base, the PP145 bracket is available in three configurations: 2-Pipe, 3-Pipe, and 2 Hi-Pipe. All three options accept 1” OD pipe and are compatible with the use of ice flags. The brackets attach directly to the roof deck.

All of Alpine’s products are precision-engineered to prevent damage caused by avalanching snow and ice while enhancing the beauty of any roofing system. The company notes that it is especially important to install them above: entryways, walkways, and gathering spots; parking lots and drive-through areas; expensive landscaping; ground mounted mechanicals; lower roofs, valleys and crickets; and gutters and roof protrusions, such as plumbing vents. Alpine has a real-world snow guard test facility at its headquarters in Vermont that includes metal roofing - for testing updates, check out Alpine's blog.
