The PD80 Pad-Style snow guard fastens to the top of the rib, while the “saddle” design holds back snow and ice while allowing melt-off and rain to flow through. PD80 was designed specifically to move the standard penetration point from the water drain channel to the top of the rib, minimizing the possibility of water infiltration.
Ease ogf installation means you can use the existing fastener holes along the roofs ribs, placing the penetration point above the surface of the panel.
Like all of our snow guards, the PD80 protects against snow damage at the lower roof level (gutters, valleys, crickets, roof protrusions, plumbing vents, etc…. as well as at ground levels (cars, landscaping, walkways, ground mounted mechanical units, pets, and most importantly, people).
