Protect Your Commercial Building This Winter with a Snow Retention System!
Commercial building owners know the importance of protecting their buildings and customers from the elements. Icy weather makes metal roofs very slick. Falling snow and ice present a real danger to customers and their vehicles parked outside. Additionally, snow and ice buildup on your roof causes gutter damage and water buildup against the foundation. This winter, make sure you have the proper protection on your building by adding a snow retention system.
This week brought much of the country extreme weather conditions ranging from tornadoes to heavy snow. Even cities that see lots of snow every winter, like Omaha and Sioux Falls, are closing roads and advising residents to avoid traveling.
If you need to close your business for a few days because of the snow, you want to make sure your building stays free of maintenance issues and safety hazards for when you return. A snow retention clamp prevents snow and ice from sliding off your roof and harming customers and keeps it away from your gutters.
Luckily, DCI carries the best snow retention systems on the market. We carry snow retention systems from S-5!®, a brand that prides itself on being able to attach virtually anything to your metal roofs. Their products include S-5!® Clamps, which fit about 85% of the standing seam profiles manufactured in North America. They work on vertical seams and most 2” horizontal seam profiles.
The ColorGard® snow retention system is manufactured out of high-quality aluminum and comes in 8” long sections. It includes splices for adjacent sections and works with S-5!® Clamps. The X-Gard,™ the newest retention solution, can be designed as a one-or two-pipe system that spans up to 48.” The strongest system on the market, the X-Gard™’s double clamp design allows it to withstand even the harshest of snowstorms. The VersaGard™ works with almost any trapezoidal, exposed-fastened profile. It comes with factory-applied butyl sealant already in the base.
