Snow Guards & Membrane Roofing

♥See our FALL IN LOVE WITH FEBRUARY special at the end of this post♥

Our talented CAD Designer/Animator, Matt, has done some really amazing work forAlpine SnowGuards and Sister Company EcoFasten Solar, in the form of install animations for some of our top products.

Take a look at this one, for our PP115 two or three pipe system for membrane roofing:


So easy, right? The PP115 system was designed specifically to be installed on metal decking or wood blocking. A compression seal is formed when flashed with a compatible target patch, by bolting the patch between the stainless steel base plate and the extruded aluminum bracket (base plate is 6” x 8” / bracket measures 4” x 6”).


The innovative system is available in 3 different configuration options to suit your project’s needs: 2-pipe, 3-pipe, and 2 hi-pipe, all accepting 1” OD Pipe for a rugged and attractive snow management solution.

The 2-pipe, 3-pipe, and 2 hi-pipe are all compatible with ice flags, and accessories are available including internal couplings, end collars, and end caps.


We’ve found that a lot of our clients have never heard of ice flags (and to be honest, I had never heard of them either, until I joined the crew here about 5 years ago). Ice flags are an accessory to the snow guard system that hang from the pipe, adding additional surface area on the up-slope side of the system. Having additional surface area also means additional snow management. Here’s what ice flags look like installed.


The system comes in mill finish (as shown in video), or in a HUGE variety of eye pleasing TIGER Drylac® ral powder coating colors to match the roofing material.

Take a look at this gorgeous image of the PP115 installed on this Sika Sarnafil Décor Rib roof on one of the buildings of the Traverse Bay Area Intermediate School District in Traverse City, MI.


Here’s another of the system installed on the roof of the Candler Building in Times Square, Manhattan. If you’re like me, and you’re interested in the history of the Candler Building, here’s a brief overview.


And on a rooftop in Stowe, Vermont, which just happens to be in our backyard (yes, we’re lucky!)
