Snow guards are used to prevent dangerous situations that may be caused by snow and ice falling from the roof. The snow guards can also protect structures installed on the roof. The snow stoppers must be used when the roof pitch is 1:8 or more. The snow guards must be positioned as close to the eaves as possible so that the load of the snow is directed towards load-bearing structures.
The Pisko snow guards are durable with a long life cycle. The snow guards and its mounting must bear a load of at least 5 kN/m in the direction of the inclined roof. The snow guards have been tested to meet the requirements of RT 85-11132 (Finland’s Building Information Foundation).
