In this video, Matt Riley demonstrates how to install the Sno Shield Rib Guard snow guard.
I’m Matt with Sno Shield. Today we’re going to show you how to install a Rib Guard on a standing seam metal roof. Now this particular system has Color Armor which is made from the same material as your roof so it weathers exactly the same.
For this project we are placing the Rib Guards sixteen inches up the rib from the eve. So go ahead and make a tick mark sixteen inches up. Like so. Go ahead and place the Rib Guard over your mark. Make sure you are in position so you that can get a good firm hold on your Rib Guard, and make sure your torque setting on your drill is preset. Each roof is a little different so you are going to have to do a little bit of checking to see which torque setting is right for your drill. Go ahead and put the screws tight. It’s important to note that the back screw is merely a positioning screw and most of the weight is derived from the top set screw.
So go ahead and place your color armor in position, I’m a little bit out of position here, but I think I can still get it, make sure it’s lined up then apply pressure to one side, then the other. And even still out of position it’s still a fairly simple system. It‘s a great system that can be used in the middle of winter. You don’t have to have summer months to make sure that you have proper adhesive curing time. It’s a great product. We hope you enjoy it. If you have any questions, give us a call and we’ll be glad to help you with your installations.
