The snowrake is intended for seamed sheet coverings. It binds the snow, distributes the pressure and creates an uniform covering of snow that can thaw away without causing any damage. Sheets of ice are prevented from sliding down the roof. It is not approved for use as snowguard nor approved as anchorage for lifelines. It is intended only as a complement to the snowguard and is suitable for mounting on smaller roof surfaces or in a number of rows on larger roof surfaces. It can also be arranged in zig-zag pattern.
