Alpine SnowGuards Introduces Product For Building Ledges

alpine-snowguards-ledgeguardMorrisville, VT - Alpine SnowGuards, a manufacturer of rooftop snow management systems, announces Alpine LedgeGuard, the newest addition to their expansive line of products.

Alpine LedgeGuard mitigates the risk of falling ice and snow to busy sidewalks and streets below, and has undergone extensive performance and large climatic chamber testing. The testing was performed by Microclimate Ice and Snow at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology. The full test report can be viewed on the Alpine SnowGuards website.

Alpine LedgeGuard is available in three configurations, all of which employ a low profile for minimal visual impact. Each system was engineered to address both design and winter operational risks associated with falling ice and snow from ledges, cornices, sloped walls, parapets, terraces and balconies.

About Alpine SnowGuards®

Alpine SnowGuards offers a wide variety of snow management systems including pad-style, pipe-style, and fence-style snow guards, as well as a line of frame-mounted snow management systems for use on solar PV arrays. Alpine has a solution for all roof types, new or retrofit.

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. For more information, visit
