SnoBlox-Snojax urges building owners and facility managers to prepare for the coming icy blasts of winter by protecting their metal-roofed structures with snow retention bars now, rather than putting off this task until winter arrives and contractor appointments are booked up.
By arranging to install snow retention bars well before icy and snow conditions begin, building owners will have the peace of mind that comes from knowing they are doing what’s needed to protect their investment. And if the building may require a customized system, ordering a snow retention bar system sooner rather than later will help to keep installation on schedule.
Ideally, a company that has determined it needs to upgrade the roof of its metal building will take steps to improve it with a customized setup developed with industry professionals, such as the professionals at SnoBlox-Snojax.
The team at SnoBlox-Snojax, a family-run business, is proud to have been serving the industry since 1976. To meet growing demand, its mill finish snow retention systems are always in stock and available to order as they are off the shelf, or with custom powder coating to precisely match colors to existing building panels.
Snow retention bars are engineered to span across multiple roof panels. The SnoBlox-Snojax SnoBar is a metal roof snow retention bar system that employs a top-loading stainless steel clamp for attachment to standing seam roofs, a patented, industry-exclusive.
SnoBlox-Snojax has built an excellent reputation for the company’s mounting systems, which not only allow for fast, safe installation, but also make it possible without any worry over causing leaks or damage or voiding the roof manufacturer’s warranty.
Building owners choose SnoBlox-Snojax because the RCT RoofClamp, made of aluminum, universally fits with most standing seam panels. The aluminum swivel brackets allow installers to angle the bar in converging valleys and hips, a versatile feature.
SnoBlox-Snojax manufactures snow retention bars from galvanized steel coated with Gatorshield, or from stainless steel in customized orders. The two options provide outstanding resistance to corrosion, helping to prolong the useful lifespan of metal roof buildings, which in turn lowers the total cost of ownership.
As a pioneer in the industry, SnoBlox-Snojax uses stainless steel clamps to enable bars to be top-loaded. Professionals appreciate this aspect of the system because it’s faster to install and uses the fewest parts. Because SnoBar systems usually necessitate fewer rows than older, traditional pad-type snow guard systems, they are viewed as more efficient and more cost-effective.
Of course, no two metal roofs are alike. In situations where a building owner has a unique shaped roof requiring protection from the snow, SnoBlox-Snojax engineers are standing by to consult with customers to design a customized system for their project.
All customized systems are produced to the company’s exceedingly high specifications. They include the hardware, bars, clamps, and instructions needed to get the job done right, on time, the first time, with SnoBlox-Snojax customer service available throughout the process.
For 6-foot SnoBar kits, the company delivers by ground shipping. Larger orders and custom systems typically are packed in 12-foot wood pallets or crates and are delivered by LTL freight.
SnoBlox-Snojax stands behind all the work it does, following industry best practices with experienced designers and engineers who are devoted to the highest standards.
Accordingly, the company includes a lifetime warranty against failure on all snow retention bar systems at no additional cost, which is another way it sets itself apart from the competition.
The late Jack McMullen invented the first polycarbonate snow guard and founded SnoBlox-Snojax in 1976. He developed the product to address the problem of rust in his own metal building business. It’s a solution that protects the roof and keeps it from being stained and damaged by rust. A multi-generation family business, SnoBlox-Snojax is proud that all of our products are made right here in the U.S.A., with nothing being sourced from overseas. The mission of SnoBlox-Snojax is to meet the ever-changing needs of the metal roofing industry with ongoing research and development of our professionally tested metal roof snow guard systems.
