A solution so simple. A concept so grand.
Posted On May 31, 2018
At Alpine SnowGuards , we’re always innovating. One of the greatest innovations over the past 25 years has been Simple Seal. A solution so simple, yet a concept so grand, that it’s specified and utilized time and time again when installing snow management systems on metal roofs.
So, what exactly is it? Simple Seal is a cone shaped EPDM rubber bushing that was designed specifically to fit into the milled countersinks on the underside of our PP145 brackets. When the system is fastened to the roof, a proprietary watertight compression seal is formed, which, like all of the products in our line, will maintain the integrity of the roof without voiding roofing manufacturer’s warranties.
Here’s what it looks like, as well as an assembled view, so you can see how it all fits together.
See? Simple, right? I’m sure you’re asking yourself, yeah, but is it easy to install?
Good news – it is! Because the system attaches directly to the roof deck, installing it is a breeze! Check out the install animation and see for yourself:
We’d also love for you to take a look at these installation photos and notice how well the PP145 does the job it was engineered to do.
We’ve designed 3 configurations: Two-pipe, three-pipe, and two hi-pipe. The PP145 is compatible with the use of ice flags, while internal couplings, end collars and end caps are also available. It’s all made right here in our facility, in Morrisville, Vermont (right next to Stowe, for anyone who’s ever been skiing here).
On top of that, the aluminum PP145 is available in mill finish (our standard option), or to match the roofing material, the system can also be powder coated using RAL TIGER Drylac® exterior colors!
While roofers, general contractors and installers will appreciate the ease of install, and straightforward approach of the PP145, architects and engineers will appreciate the AutoDesk® Revit® BIM objects we’ve had developed. In addition to accurate graphics, appropriate product data has been added to each BIM object, which will save a significant amount of time on product research and data entry.
If you’d like to learn more about the PP145 snow management system, you can visit the product page on our website. Additionally, feel free to browse all of our corrugated metal roof and standing seam (clamp-to-seam) roof snow guards – with over 60 systems in our product lineup, as well as custom projects always in the hopper, Alpine SnowGuards really is your one stop shop for all things snow guards!
