New Ideas

Snow guard is versatile

M.M. Products Inc. has introduced its Glacier Snow Guard, which can be used with all roof systems. Made from ultraviolet-resistant polycarbonate, the snow guard offers a surface mounting area of 29 1/4 square inches and a ledge for shingle applications. Snow guards are featured in clear and custom colors.

Gutter offers new design

W.P. Hickman Co. has introduced a new design that is said to make its gutter system easy to install. The new system features an interior strap that hooks onto the gutter's face, eliminating exterior brackets; this is said to keep the gutter from pulling away from a building. Three shapes are available—box, chamfer and offset.
