Snow rails are used along the perimeter of slate roofs for the prevention of sudden and unexpected ice and snow avalanches, which can damage people, cars, shrubbery and other property underneath. The rail system can also include stainless steel expanded metal to prevent slates and other debris from sliding off the roof under the rails and creating a fall hazard. Also, a standard field array of snow guards can be included on the field of the roof above the snow rail for maximum protection.

Snow rail fence brackets are installed parallel to, and approximately 24 to 36 inches from the eaves. The brackets should be spaced from 18 to 24 inches to no more than 42 inches to 48 inches apart, depending on the pitch of the roof and the expected snow load. It is recommended to use through bolts with a backer plate on the underside of the roof deck. Bronze, brass or stainless steel pipe is recommended, (copper water pipe should not be used). High snow load areas should use a three pipe system such as the Mullane 500. If a smaller system is used, then it should be supplemented with an additional snow guard array in the field of the roof above the snow rail.
