Snow Diverters have a variety of uses. Most keep rooftop protrusions from being ripped of the roof by sheets of snow and ice sliding off the roof. These includes stack and plumbing vent pipes, stove and chimney pipes, other pipe covers and any other type of pipe that sticks out of the roof.
The purpose of snow diverters are to split snow and ice apart as it slides down the roof towards the pipes. Snow diverters could be called roof snow splitters as well.
Snow retention is an important part of a roof, especially for metal roofs. That is why Sno Shield™ came up with a variety of snow diverters to accommodate most types of standing seam metal roofs, exposed-fastened roofs and asphalt shingle roofs. This is done using a variety of Sno Shield™ and S-5!® products.
