  • PD10R Standard Retrofit Copper Snow Guards

    PD10R Standard Retrofit Copper Snow Guards

    Fits slate 16" - 20" in length.

    Pad area is 2 3/8"L x 2 3/8"W (at widest point) x 1 7/16"H.

    Standard strap length is 13 5/8" (custom lengths available).

    Standard hook height is 1 1/4" (custom heights available).

    This snow guard has a 12.25 inch "reach." When you slide it underneath your slate, it can only go 12 1/4." The head of the slate you're hooking over needs to be in that range.

    Our riveted "fish head" design means optimum strength with no risk of unfolding. Thin, durable strap with tab hook minimizes disruption of slate/shingle pattern. When you hook the snow guard over the top of the slates, you can maintain a uniform pattern even on random width roofs.

    Easily installs by pushing up underneath the slates using a "slate ripper" or similar tool. Just slide under the overlying course and pull down to engage the tab. No need for nail hangers. 

    For new construction, use the nail application PD10.

    Price: $14.50

    Allows snow and ice to drop off in small amounts or melt completely on the roof. Protects against ice and snow damage at the lower roof level, gutters, valleys, crickets, roof protrusions, plumbing vents, and at ground level cars, people, landscaping, pets, walkways, ground mounted mechanical units.

    NOTE: Returned Alpine snow guards incur a 25% restocking fee. Please call with any questions to make sure you're ordering the correct product for your project.

  • Mullane 100S-RH Retrofit Snow Guards

    The Mullane 100S-RH Retrofit snow guard is designed to be installed on existing slate roofs with slate up to 1/4" (0.25) thick and headlaps up to three (3) inches.  

    All BRONZE GUARD® products are cast in pure tin bronze, using only virgin metals to assure the highest quality alloy. Slide this snow guard in between two existing slates until the top of the snow guard hooks over the top of the underlying slate. See the instructional video below.

    A traditional spike-style snow guard, from a design first patented in 1899, the Model #100 is historically accurate for period restorations but is just as appropriate for new construction or retrofit application on existing slate roofs. Because of its low profile, this model is more appropriate for residential usage. Model #100 is for applications on slate, shake, and shingle roofs, and is designed to fit between adjacent pieces of roof material so that only the casting is visible above the roof surface.

    $19.50 each.

    The #100 snow guard has a smaller face than the Mullane #200 Retrofit Snowguard and is less expensive.

  • Mullane 200S-RH Retrofit Snow Guards

    The Mullane 200S-RH snow guard is designed to be installed on existing slate roofs with slate up to 1/4" (0.25) thick and headlaps up to three (3) inches. The shoe is cast bronze and the strap is 24-ounce cold-rolled copper.

    Slide this snow guard in between two existing slates until the top of the snow guard hooks over the top of the underlying slate (see video). This spike style snow guard is fabricated from the same sheet metal components as the #100, but the #200 casting is 30% larger than the  #100. Both products are equally strong and effective in their capacity to hold snow on the roof, but Model #200 is more appropriate to larger scale buildings, or where the roof material is thicker than usual, such as tile roofing.

    All  BRONZE GUARD® products are cast in pure tin bronze, using only virgin metals to assure the highest quality alloy. The castings are produced locally by old-world craftsmen using state of the art equipment to assure that each casting is of consistent quality. The final assembly is done by hand, using only solid copper rivets, so that each finished product is of uniform quality.

    $20.00 each.

    This snow guard is also available in a standard style for new roof installations.  

    NOTE: Returned Berger and Mullane snow guards incur a 25% restocking fee. Please call (814) 786-9085 or email us with any questions to make sure you're ordering the correct product for your project.

  • Mullane 200CPT Retrofit Snow Guards

    The Mullane 200 CPT retrofit snow guard for tile roofs is designed to be installed on existing tile roofs with tiles up to 5/8" (0.625) thick with headlaps up to 3.5 inches. The shoe is cast bronze and the strap is 24-ounce cold-rolled copper.

    Snow guards should be installed where the potential for the sudden sliding of ice and snow can be hazardous to people or property below. Falling snow safety issues, and careful consideration of liability issues should be part of a carefully designed roof system in all areas prone to winter snow and ice.

    All BRONZE GUARD® products are cast in pure tin bronze, using only virgin metals to assure the highest quality alloy. The castings are produced locally by old-world craftsmen using state of the art equipment to assure that each casting is of consistent quality.

  • Mullane 300S-RH Retrofit Snow Guards

    The Mullane 300S-RH copper/bronze retro hook style snow guard is for installation on existing roofs. The solid bronze casting eliminates the corrosion problem caused by condensation which is formed inside closed, pressed copper snow guards. The installation flange can be easily fabricated to any length for any roof application.

    18" long, 2.5" wide, protrudes up from the roof about 2". The half-round Model 300 casting is attached to a 20 oz. copper installation base flange by four brass rivets for extreme durability and snow load-bearing capacity. The solid bronze casting is extremely durable and rugged, tested at 870 lbs. of pressure. 

    This snow guard has a "reach" of about 13.5". It can slide up underneath the slates 13.5" maximum before engaging the top of the underlying slate. For a typical 24" long slate with a 3" headlap and a 10.5" exposure (13.5" unexposed), the snow guard should just have enough reach to slide underneath, slide the length of the unexposed area, and hook over the top of the slate. Shorter slates will leave more of the snow guard exposed. One advantage to this snow guard is that you can install it over the head of slates on random width roofs and still maintain a uniform layout on the snow guards because you don't have to line the snow guards up with the slots. 

    $19.00 each.

    NOTE: Returned Berger and Mullane snow guards incur a 25% restocking fee. Please call (814) 786-9085 or email us with any questions to make sure you're ordering the correct product for your project.

  • Salvo 15-ES Retrofit Snow Guards

    The Salvo #15-ES Retrofit Snow Guard is made from 16 oz. copper, and is installed on existing slate ("ES") roofs. If you are installing a new slate roof, use the Salvo #15 or #6.

    15" long, 2.5" wide. The S&S snow guard was designed in-house and was tested, not only by S&S, but also at the laboratories of Tox Pressotechnik in Warrenville, IL. This snow guard can be used on all roofing applications.

    This snow guard has an 11 1/2" "reach." You can slide it up 11.5" underneath your slate and still hook the head of the slate underneath (see image).

    There are also four style variations: Classic, Rabbit, Arch, and Fleur. The Rabbit, Arch, and Fleur require an additional charge due to the addition of a 24-ounce copper decorative attachment.

    Options:

    15" Classic: $12.00

    15" Rabbit: $17.00

    15" Arch: $17.00

    15" Fleur: $17.00
