What Style Snow Guard Should I Use on My Project?

For those of us who live and work in locations that receive any amount of snow during the course of the winter (even in the autumn and spring up here in our neck of the woods), managing rooftop snow is essential in protecting the areas immediately surrounding our homes and businesses, where people walk and play, where animals live, where our expensive landscaping resides, and where our cars are parked, our BBQ grills sit, and our gutters are in the direct line of fire.

But how do you know what type of snow guard is the right type for your project? That’s where we come in. Our technical team is rich with talent – they know all the options for each roof type, and by employing our ground snow load database, they can help determine what type of snow guard is not only right for your project, but for your location, as well.

forkintheroad

The Alpine SnowGuards® team designs, engineers and manufactures over 60 variations of snow guards. 60! Seems like a lot, right?  It is, and here’s why: Every roof is different (material, slope, shape, size, pitch, valleys, etc….), and ground snow loads vary significantly from one area to another. This is the exact reason we make a snow guard for every roof type, new or retrofit, in many styles that differ in both form and function.

We offer 4 styles of snow guards, each with a unique purpose:

Pad-StylePipe-StyleFence-Style, and Solar Snow Management.

Pad-Style Snow Guards

Traditional pad-style snow guards are designed specifically to add friction to a frictionless surface, which will help prevent a sudden roof avalanche of snow and ice.  Our pad-style snow guards feature our “fish head” design, providing maximum strength while maintaining aesthetic integrity, and most are available in mill finish, copper, and many color options.

PAD

You can use our convenient snow guard calculator to estimate how many pad-style snow guards you will need for your project.

Pipe-Style Snow Guards

Acting as a barricade, pipe-style snow guards prevent large sections of snow and ice from avalanching off a roof.  Our pipe-style snow guards are precision engineered to be not only durable, but beautiful as well.  We offer two-pipe and three-pipe snow retention systems and we also make several height-adjustable bracket options to accommodate roof pitches of many ranges.  You can even have your system powder coated to match the roof!

PIPE

It’s easy to get started, just sign up to start using our Online Project Calculator  and we’ll provide you with a FREE recommended layout!

Fence-Style Snow Guards

The Alpine SnowGuards team is very proud of our SnowMax system, which is the strongest snow management system on the market.  Fabricated from aircraft grade aluminum, and with bracket spacing up to 48” on center, this system is an easy to install, cost-effective solution. SnowMax is available for 3 roof types – standing seam, membrane, and corrugated metal.

Since our Sister Company, EcoFasten Solar, manufactures patented, watertight solar roof mounts and rail-free mounting systems, we recognize a need for solutions designed for managing snow on solar arrays – that’s why EcoFasten offers Solar SnowMax, SolarSnowMax-R2, and Solar Snow Pad. All of which were specifically designed for use on solar arrays, in either portrait or landscape orientation.

So there you have it – the low down on snow guards and a brief overview of each type.  If you’re like me, you’ll still have questions, so just email us – that’s what we’re here for! And if you’d like to check out our products by roof type, let me lead the way!

EcoFasten’s CorruSlide: An Interactive 3D Model

It’s been a little over a year since I’ve written about CorruSlide, one of our solar roof mount solutions for installing solar on corrugated metal roofing.  I was all ready to sit down this morning and write a great post….until I remembered that not only do we already have a great post about CorruSlide to re-share (below), we also have an equally great 3D model, which shows you exactly how it works, while also showing you just how easy it is to install – just like all of the systems in our extensive line of products.

So let’s cut to the chase….

If your name is Matt, and you’re the resident Animator at EcoFasten Solar, you do things that create confidence, in that your animations are so clear, so concise, that anyone who watches them even once can see first-hand how easy our solar roof mount systems are to install.

If you’re me? Well….you write about it.

I often refer to Matt as a Superhero. And really, it’s not that much of a stretch. To take devices that require a certain amount of mechanical acuity to install, and break them down into installation animations and 3D models that, at the literal click of a button, transform into devices that make sense and have you walk away going, “ohhhh! NOW I get it!”? That, to me anyway, is a Superhero quality.

Matt

In 2014 we launched CorruSlide at Intersolar – it’s another one of our solutions for mounting solar on corrugated metal roofs. CorruSlide attaches to the sides of the ribs, instead of in the valleys, where water flows and moisture accumulates, and features adjustability both N-S and E-W. If you’re looking for a universal design that works with all known profiles, you’ll want to try CorruSlide.

CS

Anyway, my whole point in writing this was to show off the CorruSlide Interactive 3D Model….CHECK. THIS. OUT. Play around with it, view it from all angles (even underneath), and if you want, and if you’re in the mood, let us know what you think!

Cut Installation Costs with NEW SimpleBlock from EcoFasten Solar

When it comes to mounting solar on metal standing seam roofing, our ASG Clamps have been a go-to for installers for years now, due not only to the ease of installation, but also because the two oval-point set screws don’t penetrate the roofing material or void roofing manufacturer’s warranties.

OvalPoint

We’ve heard great things about our clamps, and like the innovators we are, we’ve been focused on designing a leaner solution to bring installation costs down, while providing robust engineering values. I’m here to tell you….we did it, and you are going to be so happy we did!

Introducing a design so simple, we named it SimpleBlock. A solution SO new, it’s not even on our website yet!

UandT

The newly designed, pared-down clamps are fabricated from 6000 series aluminum and feature a streamlined design (less material). The integrated T-Slot allows for impressive N-S and E-W adjustability that wasn’t possible with the ASG Clamps, and the 2 configurations currently available (“U” for vertical/double lock seams and “T” for horizontal/single lock seams) give you greater flexibility when determining your project needs.

NOW FOR THE BEST PART….

Are you ready for this??

SIMPLEBLOCK CAN BE PURCHASED IN VOLUME QTY’S FOR AS LOW AS $3.79! 

Yup! You read that right! Installing solar should be easy. It should also be cost-efficient. SimpleBlock delivers both.

EcoFasten Solar Invalidates D Three Enterprises Patents in Colorado District Court

Anyone who does business with EcoFasten Solar, in any capacity, knows that we pride ourselves on our innovative spirit and our proactive approach to anticipating gaps in the marketplace by engineering solutions that fill those gaps.

Just last week we learned that the District Court of Colorado granted our motion for summary judgement invalidating all patent claims asserted against us by D Three Enterprises. The Court’s order brings the dispute to a close, and for all of us at EcoFasten Solar, this is a long-deserved victory.

The action against us was filed a couple of summers ago, back in June of 2015. The action asserted claims against 2 of our patents. From the beginning, we’ve maintained that the claims were without merit and that the D Three Patents were invalid. In its recent order granting EcoFasten’s motion, the Court found that EcoFasten’s prior commercial activities came before to the effective filing dates of each of D Three’s asserted patents, making each of their claims invalid.

We have a very strong patent portfolio, and are, and will continue to, aggressively defend those patents by pursuing those companies that infringe.

The founder and President of EcoFasten Solar, Brian Stearns, says, “This finding by the Colorado Court confirms our long held belief that D Three’s claims were baseless.  EcoFasten Solar has a long, proud tradition of innovation. We also work diligently to respect the patent rights of others.  This action has also caused us to look at our own patent rights and move forward with actions to defend the innovation we have worked so hard to create.”

EcoFasten Solar Tradeshow Calendar: Remainder of 2017

As Q1 comes to a close, the crew at EcoFasten Solar finds ourselves with 3 tradeshows already behind us. I just can’t believe how fast the time goes! And even though we always send thank you and follow-up emails, I still would like to say in this (very) public forum, “THANK YOU”. Thank you to all current and future clients who stopped by our booths. Thank you to show management, and to all the people behind the scenes that make these shows what they are!

Badge

In February, we exhibited at the 6th annual altE Installer & Dealer Conference in Boxborough, Massachusetts. The conference features industry-leading vendors, and is an event we’ve always enjoyed being a part of, and this year was no different. The show included breakout sessions, some of which enabled installers to earn NABCEP Continuing Education Credits. Our sessions focused on the importance of Solar Snow Management, and a technical training on our rail-free Rock-It System 2.0. Both sessions were wildly successful as the Rock-It System continues to impress, and as the importance of managing snow on solar arrays gains momentum in the industry.

Just a week later, we were in Boston, exhibiting at Solar Power Northeast (formerly PV America). We’ve really enjoyed this show over the years as it’s the perfect forum for solar industry professionals to meet up, exhibit their products, network, and put on a great show. We’ve enjoyed seeing the consistently heavy booth traffic year after year, despite the small venue. Plus, it’s always held in Boston, which you have to admit, is a wicked cool city to visit.

SPNE

The following week, we found ourselves in Ponce, Puerto Rico, exhibiting at Power 3 Fair, where we unveiled our brand new rail-free, fixed position, flat concrete system! Stay tuned for more on this….

PR

Three down, six to go!

This year we’ll be launching several NEW systems that will ensure installers continue to enjoy the ease of use and flexibility our products offer. We’ll keep you posted as things develop!

In the meantime, take a look at the shows we’ll be at for the remainder of the year – and make sure to stop by and see us if/when you attend any of these industry shows.

Solar Snow Management Application Chart – Alpine SnowGuards & EcoFasten Solar

If a solar install project you’re working on or have completed requires a snow management solution, you’ll want to read this. And if you’re in New England, like us, you woke up to a TON of snow this morning, so this is as great a time as any to talk about snow on solar. We had 30” this morning when I left, and it’s still snowing (that’s my poor car below, just before I cleaned her off and moved her into the garage last night).

Car

Anyway, back to the story. We’re excited to now have a Solar Snow Management Application Chart available on the Alpine SnowGuards website that will help you determine what your array will need based on factors like  the ground snow load in your area, the size of your modules, the size of the array, the orientation in which the solar array is installed, as well as the slope of your roof.

Chart

All of these factors play an important role in managing solar snow. So, let’s get to the root of the issue…. How does a solavalanche occur in the first place? Well, the snow that would’ve accumulated on your roofing material has now accumulated on your solar panels – which, as you know, are fabricated from glass. And it goes without saying, but I’m going to say it anyway: glass is frictionless. The melting snow on your panels actually acts as a lubricant between the snow mass and the panel surface, resulting in the perfect scenario to allow that snow mass to come barreling off your roof.

Sliding

For just shy of 5 years now, Alpine SnowGuards and our sister company, EcoFasten Solar, have been engaged in solar snow management research and development. Alpine SnowGuards has been the industry leader in rooftop snow management for over 20 years, and our solar snow management line of products were the very first frame-mounted solutions available.

The final designs were engineered specifically to provide a super low-profile to minimize shading. Because the majority of panels don’t generate electricity along the edges, the shading effect is extremely minor.

The solar snow management options we have available have been being used more widely than ever in the solar industry – by small installation companies, as well as by the top installers in the country. Mitigating the risk of a roof avalanche, or in this case, a Solavalanche (I made that up, but I like it), is something that shouldn’t be overlooked.

With that said, take a look at our all new Solar Snow Management Application Chart, a straightforward tool that will ensure you see the overall picture that will help you determine the needs of your project.

Once you’ve looked over the chart, you’re now ready to look at the options!

Solar SnowMax-R2

R2

Solar SnowMax-R2 is a fence-style system that we designed specifically for the eave-edge of the array. Fabricated from aircraft grade aluminum, the 2” bar on the front of the system is the largest fence option available, and was developed for clients who requires a higher fence at the eaves. The taller bar system is a proven solution that’s been used in the conventional snow guard market for over 20 years. The system is made in the USA and features a groove along the front that accepts an optional black color insert strip to match black-framed modules.See below for your up-slope options, which are used for additional tiers of snow management. Check out this installation video & see how easy it is to install!

Solar SnowMax-Standard

Standard

Used on the up-slope portions of an array, the Solar SnowMax-Standard is also fabricated from aircraft grade aluminum, clamps directly to the module frame, and can be used on portrait or landscape array layouts. The 1” bar provides additional tiers to facilitate the management of the snow load, and allows the snow and ice to drop off in small amounts or allow snow and ice to melt completely before falling to the ground. We have an install video for the Standard, too – you can watch it here.

Solar Snow Pads

Pad

The 3” block with T-Nut on the Solar Snow Pad is meant to be installed in the horizontal joints between modules. This is a pad-style snow guard that can also be used as an up-slope options where additional tiers of snow management are required or desired.

The coolest thing about our Solar Snow Pads is that they were designed to also accept 3/8” stainless steel rods, which, when installed, results in a hybrid solar/pad/pipe style snow management system. You can even have the Solar Snow Pads powder coated using RAL TIGER Drylac® Exterior colors.

You guessed it, we have an installation video for Solar Snow Pad!

We’re confident the Solar Snow Management Application Chart will be a helpful tool in determining the snow management needs of your solar array.

For more information, feel free to contact us any time at info@alpinesnowguards.com, or by giving us a call at 888-766-4273.  You can also visit our websites at www.alpinesnowguards.com to see all of our snow management systems (over 60, not including the many CUSTOM systems we engineer for our clients throughout the year. Our rugged systems span all roof types, new or retrofit.

We look forward to hearing from you, and most of all, we look forward to solving a big problem by helping you avoid those solavalanche blues.

Oh, and if you’ll be at ROOFTech or AIA next month please make sure to stop by the Alpine SnowGuards booth! We’ll be at ROOFTech booth 1019 and AIA booth 1779. We hope to see you!

Alpine SnowGuards: Spring 2017 & Beyond

Spring is almost here. Well, not really “almost” in Vermont, we still have snow here, not to mention the fact that  I woke up this morning to a thick coating of ice on my driveway, porch and (ugh) windshield. I also saw a robin on Saturday, so I guess you never know….either way, Spring IS just around the corner!

Spring

This year we’re thrilled to be looking at a full line up of trade shows, and we’re hopeful we’ll see most of you at one or another (or all!)

At the end of January we exhibited at the CRA show in Denver and enjoyed a great turnout! Clients we’ve worked with for decades were there, as well as many new faces, which brings new relationships, and new opportunities.

Now here we are, already into the 2nd week of March. As we make our way closer to Q2, and as you make your plans for the year, take a look at the below shows we’ll be exhibiting at, and please, let us know if we’ll see you!

Custom Snow Guards? No Problem!

Custom adjective • cus-tom

1: Made or performed according to personal order

2: Specializing in custom work or operation


Industry leader Alpine SnowGuards was born in the mid-1990’s, and we’ve been engaged in engineering rugged rooftop snow management systems ever since. In fact, the entire reason for our existence is due to the fact that our President and founder, Brian, was once a slate roofer in search of snow guards that wouldn’t fail under extreme snow loads like we often see up here in New England. Instead of continuing his (futile) search, he made….no, he CUSTOMIZED….his own snow guards (that’s Brian on the left in the photo below, on a consulting job in Japan).

japan

It wasn’t long before other roofers started asking where he was getting these new, robust snow guards that were unlike anything they’d ever seen before. And the rest is history.

Besides the 60+ systems we currently manufacture, we also design MANY solutions that are customized from the very beginning of the snow guard manufacturing cycle, the R&D and design phase.

Innovation has always been one of our many strong suits, and with the talent to back it up, we’ve created HUNDREDS of customized snow management systems over the years. Systems that run the gamut from complicated, decorative and elaborate, to ornate, and even unusual. Systems created for small roofing contractors all the way up to the largest contractors in North America.

Take a peek at just some of these customized systems, and don’t hesitate to reach out the next time a project you’re working on requires something a little outside of the box. After all, it’s our specialty!

Solar Power Northeast: EcoFasten Solar Will Be There!

I don’t know about you, but I cannot BELIEVE the start of Solar Power Northeast (formerly PV Conference & Expo, formerly PV America) is in 6 days!  EcoFasten Solar will be at booth 514, so make sure to stop by, meet the crew, say hello, and see what’s NEW!

The event, again being held at the Westin Boston Waterfront, is pretty thrilling to me personally, not only because of my natural New England love of the Red Sox, Super Bowl LI champions, the New England Patriots, the Bruins, and the Celtics (although I’m now also an admitted Golden State Warrior’s fan due to my 10 year old son’s obsession with all things Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, Andre Iguodala and Klay Thompson), but also because I’ve spent a lot of time there over the years, on business travel and for family vacations….long story short, I love Boston. A wicked lot.

logo_sp_ne_horizontal

There are MANY reasons Solar Power Northeast is a must-attend event for anyone in the solar industry (the educational aspect alone is worth its weight in gold).

Since the show is just 6 days away, here are 6 reasons you should be there:

  • This is the only event in the East that was created especially for solar professionals – think about that. Like the rest of the country, the East has seen some pretty stellar solar growth over the past few years.
  • Over 60 exhibitors will be there, showcasing the latest and greatest.
  • Networking! Enough said.
  • 16 Educational workshops are available, covering a wide variety of topics, from “PV and the 2017 NEC” to “Election Report and the ITC”.
  • Over 1300 industry professional will be in attendance.
  • NEW PRODUCTS!

Add to this the fact that all (in case you missed it, that’s ALL) proceeds are dedicated to the expansion of the industry, and this event is a proven win/win for all.

Not Your Average Online Project Calculator

Making things as easy as possible for our clients has always been a top priority at Alpine SnowGuards. We want the process to go smoothly for you, so you’ll get exactly what  you need for your snow management project. Because of this, we’ve put a lot of time and resources into developing an online project calculator that will make determining what system you need easy, fast and hassle-free.

But this is no ordinary calculator.

home-calculator

So, what makes it such a great tool? Well, for starters, you only need to sign up once to start reaping the benefits of all that it has to offer.

You can use the calculator any time that’s convenient for you, day or night. You can also compare multiple applicable snow management solutions, so you can see what makes the most sense for the roof, the project, the building owner, and the budget.

Another great feature is the fact that the system will even store all of your entered projects, allowing you to easily search and recall them at any time, for reference, or to make changes as needed.

Adding you project information is fast, easy, and best of all, the recommended layout we provide is free!

asg4025_homeowner-install-1

When you enter the project details, you’ll receive a printable document that will include everything you’ll need to know, broken out by roof section.

The calculator will generate a complete listing of parts needed for the specified project. This takes out the guesswork, and provides you with an accurate scope of what you’ll need.

Each part needed for the project will be listed out by roof section, in an easy to read chart that breaks down the price associated with each of the system components.
