Why We Love SnowMax Fence-Style Snow Management

If you haven’t ever heard our backstory, we think it’s important for you to know that AlpineSnowGuards was founded by a former roofer who started his career in the 1970’s. Why is this important? Because he knows a thing or two about roofing. He knows maintaining the integrity of the roof comes first and foremost. With his 40+ years’ expertise and a talented driven team, we have become the industry leader in snow management systems. One of our best selling snow guard innovations is the SnowMax, a fence-style snow management system.

Best-Selling SnowMax Fence-Style Snow Management

One of those systems is the best-selling SnowMax family of products, which includes fence-style snow management systems available in configurations engineered specifically for use on standing seam metal roofing, metal corrugated roofing, membrane roofing, and even on solar PV arrays!

Fabricated from 6000 Series Aluminum, SnowMax has become known as the strongest snow management system on the market. Fast, easy installation and increased bracket spacing (up to 48” on center) will save you time and money. Who doesn’t want to save money?

The fence features a grooved front that accepts an optional color insert strip (as seen in photo below). This will match your roofing material (or the frame of your solar modules). All Alpine SnowGuards’ products are rigorously tested in-house and in the field by roofing contractors. You can rely on SnowMax to do exactly what we say it’ll do: keep snow in its place.

Accommodates Optional Fixed Position Ice Flags

The system can accommodate optional fixed position ice flags on metal roofing, which will hang from the bar between the brackets to help keep snow and ice from sliding underneath (you can see them in between seams in the image below).
