The Rib GuardSno Shield Rib Guard

If you need snow guards for metal roofing, the Rib Guard is an excellent option from our snow retention systems product line. The Rib Guard is made from virgin grade, UV-stabilized polycarbonate. It offers a similar attractive design and the same broad span as The Panel Guard but adds the ability to attach to the ribs of standing seam metal roofs. The Rib Guard utilizes the strength of two structural cleats designed into the product itself against the opposing force of two stainless steel set screws that pinch the snow guard to the rib without penetrating the panel. This method of attachment is ideal when potential leaks and warranty violations need to be avoided.
