CALGARY LRT STATION

Scope of work

Design, Supply and provide custom snow guard system on a barreled roof.

Challenge

At the request of the client provide a custom snow guard solution that would follow the curvature of the roof in a continuous manner. 

Solution

S-5! Z clamp with custom designed brackets.  The clamps and brackets needed to colour match the roof. Once the fabrication of the brackets was complete, both the S-5! Z clamps and custom brackets were anodized in order to mitigate the interaction between the copper and aluminum clamps.

Advantages

Retain the architectural appeal of the roof while providing ease of installation by simply bending ½” bars as the installer moves along the roof.  No need to pre-bend bars off site thus insuring an accurate and proper fit into the custom brackets.
