  • Mullane 100S Snow Guards

    Not rated yet
    Mullane 100S standard nail application snow guards are designed to be installed on slate and asphalt shingle roofs by nail application during the installation of the roofing. All BRONZE GUARD® products are cast in pure tin bronze, using only virgin metals to assure the highest quality alloy. The shoe is cast bronze and the strap is 24-ounce cold-rolled copper.

    See side-by-side photos comparing the AS to the NA models. The NA is longer and sits higher on the roof with more space between the shoe and the strap for thicker shingles and slates (maximum 3/8" slate, tile, or shingle thickness). 

    The AS is shorter and the shoe is closer to the strap, which makes it more suitable for thinner roofing such as asphalt shingles. Check the CAD drawings below to make sure the dimensions work for your shingles.

    This is 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. The 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. 


    $20.50 each.


    This snow guard is also available in a retrohook style for installing on existing slate roofs. The #100 snow guard has a smaller shoe than the #200, and is less expensive. View the #200.


    Options:

    100S-NA for Slate application

    100S-AS for Asphalt application

    We also have this style in retrofit (for existing roofs) and for flat copper roofs.

    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 200S Snow Guards

    Not rated yet
    The Mullane 200S snow guard is designed to be installed on slate or asphalt shingle roofs during the installation of the shingles. These snow guards fit BETWEEN the slates. Select type below. 

    See side-by-side photos comparing the AS to the NA models. The NA is longer and sits higher on the roof with more space between the shoe and the strap for thicker shingles and slates (maximum 3/8" slate, tile, or shingle thickness). 

    The AS is shorter and the shoe is closer to the strap, which makes it more suitable for thinner roofing such as asphalt shingles. Check the CAD drawings below to make sure the dimensions work for your shingles.

    The Mullane #100 snow guard has a smaller shoe than the Mullane #200. The shoe is cast bronze and the strap is 24-ounce cold-rolled copper.

    This snow guard is fabricated from the same sheet metal components as the #100, but the #200 casting is 30% larger than the #100 (see photos). Both products are equally strong and effective in their capacity to hold snow on the roof, but the Model #200S is more appropriate to larger scale buildings, or where the roof material is thicker, 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.

    Options:

    200S-NA for Slate application

    200S-AS for Asphalt application

    We also have this style for soldering to flat copper roofs: 100CPSM or 200CPSM.

    These are also available in a retrohook style for installation on existing slate roofs: 100-RH200-RH, and 300-RH.

    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.
