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®

Established in 1993 and employee owned, Alpine SnowGuards designs, engineers and manufactures 50+ snow and solar snow management systems for all roof types, new or retrofit, from its facilities in Morrisville, VT. Alpine’s 11 snow guard designs for “clamp-to-seam” systems utilize round-point set screws to avoid damaging roof panels, allowing for a firm hold all winter long while keeping snow in its place. Alpine’s 8 products for corrugated metal utilize a compression fit seal to prevent water from leaking into the roof decking and causing issues. All of Alpine’s snow guards are rigorously performance tested at its in-house testing facility, by 3rd party testing facilities, and in the field by roofing experts. When installed properly, they will not void manufacturer warranties.
