Jalco Snow Guards are designed to prevent snow slides. After years of installing slate roofs with steel snow guards - resulting in rust trails going down the roofs, John Kleckner designed aluminum snow guards to eliminate this unsightly problem. In 1958 he came out with what was arguably the first aluminum snow guard. Jalco aluminum snow guard castings are made with at least 50% recycled aluminum.
