Mannheimer Hütte - snow retention system

You can also find our snow retention in very special places. The roof of the Mannheimer Hütte was renovated last year on one of the highest construction sites in Austria. This special construction project was reported on in the Spengler trade journal. The corresponding report can be found here.

Now think about your snow retention

In recent years it has been shown that despite global warming, winter can still hit hard. It is therefore still important to have a snow guard system on the metal roof that corresponds to the load assumptions according to the relevant standards. Use the summer months to assemble the quality systems. Snow guard systems for metal roofs have been manufactured at REES for decades. The snow guard flaps are attached to the folded roof using a tried-and-tested clamping system without damaging the roof skin. This means that the length of the roof sheeting can continue to expand. We also offer the right accessories such as extension elements, double-tube snow guards, snow stoppers and much more. REES snow guard systems are ideally suited for the traditional standing seam technique as well as for modern, industrially manufactured profiles such as Kalzip® or Bemo® as well as for trapezoidal and sandwich roof profiles. We would be happy to provide you with an installation proposal for your property. Please ask your specialist dealer.
