CREATON original roofs are technically sophisticated and, naturally, comply with all building code provisions and specifications. This also applies to premium accessories such as snow guard systems. Since 2014, structural calculations have been required for these systems to ensure the best possible protection from falling snow loads. The dimensioning of the Snow guard system is determined by the roof pitch, the provisions of the respective state building regulations and the “snow load zone”, which is determined by the geographic location of the building. A CREATON snow guard system is calculated based on the specifications and then harmoniously integrated into the roof structure. The CREATON Snow Load Assistant helps calculate a correct snow protection recommendation. This not only guarantees maximum safety, but also meets the highest aesthetic standards. CREATON offers various technical solutions. CREATON has a diverse range from conventional snow guard grids to snow clips, mountain snow guards and designs with logs.
The decisive advantage of CREATON snow guard accessories is that they can be mounted directly when installing the roof. No changes need to be made to the clay roof tiles or concrete roof tiles that could impair their function. And, naturally, the snow guard systems match the roof colour. These low-maintenance systems fit harmoniously into the overall appearance of the roof.
Depending on building location, the CREATON accessories include four basic components for protection from large volumes of falling snow. First, there is a robust mountain aluminium snow guard grid for snowy regions to match the roof colour. Alternatively, a more rustic rural building style can be emphasised using log brackets. The "snow clips" are another solution for keeping snow on the roof. These are therefore also designated as a snow retention system.
There is also a large selection of snow protection systems for roofing with CREATON concrete roof tiles. Whether snow clip, base element for log brackets or snow guard grid, the brackets are fastened to a concrete roof tile in each case and are available in any concrete roof tile colour variant. The support elements are set in the roof surface like a conventional concrete roof tile element and the roof surface remains a complete unit, optically and technically.
The following snow protection systems are available as original accessories for CREATON concrete roof tiles:
