Snegostoppery are lattice, plate, tubular and point.The first three are usually mounted on the eaves of the roof, the latter view is set on its slopes.

most common and popular type are tubular snow stop.This design allows you to keep from falling even quite thick, packed snow layers.Usually, this kind of device was used for standing seam roofs.

For metallocherepichnoy roof most commonly used grid snow stop, which stop even a very thin layer of snow and ice.Such snegostoppery usually mounted on a special support clamp which eliminates the additional timber capable of heavier construction.

on the roof of shingles support of these elements are attached with screws to the roof battens.Many manufacturers of roofing materials originally produced special tiles with supports that are subsequently installed snow stop.
