The new Drift Solar Snow Fence System from Rocky Mountain Snow Guards, Inc., carefully handles the melting conditions of fallen snow. Designed specifically for snow retention below solar panel installations on shingle roofs, the 12” tall, four-pipe aluminum Drift Solar snow retention system ensures no snow slips past the snow fence. It serves as a catch basin for snow and comes in mill finish aluminum or coated aluminum.
Suitable for both new roof and retrofit roof applications, the brackets must be bolted down to the roof support structure. Installation should be such that there is a minimum of 12” between the bottom of the solar panel and the snow fence tubes. The bracket can be flush at the eave with the tubing side facing down-slope, reversed installation compared to other snow fence installations.
Five 1/2” x 3.5” lag bolts, not included, and the individually sold ice screens must be installed with the Drift Solar snow fence system to impede the movement of snow between the tubing. Drift Solar Four-Pipe Fence-Style Snow Guard Bolt-Down Brackets are also available for end placements on the system.
