Snow retention clamp in copper for metal roofs

Installation & Snow loads

Single or double snow retention systems with ice holders for metal roofs according to the
regulations of the German plumbing trade ZVSHK.

Installation and dimensioning of the Kling systems against roof avalanches

A clamp is screwed onto each longitudinal fold without damaging the
metal. This clamp consists of two parts, which can be interchanged for simplifying the
installation.
Due to their concave curvature, the clamps enter into a force-locking connection with the
roof skin. A 1" steel, copper, aluminium or stainless steel tube is inserted into the clamping
bracket. The first row of snow catchers is attached to the eaves. The remaining rows are
spread over the entire roof surface. This ensures an even weight distribution of the snow
load, so that no excessive thrust forces are produced in the direction of the eaves.

  • Snow retention clamps have to be fastened in a way so that they do not interfere with
    the thermal changes in the length of the panels
