The Snow Bird Hybrid Snow Guard allows you to add optional 3/8" solid horizontal rods during or after the install. Stiffening ribs on the front of the pad add rigidity and strength while allowing the rods to sit static. The strap is 18" long, but also available in multiple lengths to accommodate various roofing materials as well as retrofit applications. It is ideal for residential customers who don't want the look of a pipe-style system on their roof, but want the benefits a pipe-style system provides. It protects against snow damage to gutters, valleys, crickets, roof protrusions, plumbing vents, cars, people, landscaping, pets, walkways, ground mounted mechanical units.
