IceBlox Inc. Introduces Standing Seam Vent Pipe Guard Kit

vs ad

Sliding snow and ice are major problems for chimneys and roof ventilation pipes on both commercial and residential buildings. Damage, such a bending or shearing, is a common and often expensive occurrence. VentSaver products will help prevent crushed vent pipes by splitting and diverting the snow. Unlike snow guards, this ingenious vent guard product also adds support and strength to your vent pipes, chimneys or masts. The innovative fin design cuts through packed ice and snow, causing the snow slide to divert around the pipe, and to assist in shedding the snow and ice from your roof. Installation is quick and easy. VentSaver is made from quality non-corrosive, powder-coated aluminum, stainless steel and aircraft cable. The 151 series will fit any roof pitch and any standard size vent pipe (1 1/2″, 2″, 3″ and 4″).  The 383 series will fit any roof pitch and an infinite array of sizes between 1-14″. The beauty of the 383 series is the variety of applications it will fit as well as the ease of installation. The HD, like the 383, can work on any roof pitch and also includes the added benefit of the optional wing kit. All 3 of these VentSavers eliminate the need for unattractive, costly crickets and may be installed on any existing roof as well as new construction.

Now our valued customers can install these great products onto their standing seam roofs as well! We are proud to introduce the Standing Seam Vent Pipe Guard Kit as the newest addition to our product line. This is an adjustable-fit mounting plate that secures to a roof’s standing seams with (4) non-penetrating RCT seam clamps. It allows the use of the Ventsaver 151, 383, or HD to be used without penetration. It utilizes a custom fit Ice Ramp, to protect the base of the pipe from sliding snow and ice damage. The fin of the Ventsaver protects the upper portions of the pipe. The all-aluminum SS Ventsaver kit is manufactured in the USA and uses stainless steel set screws and fasteners.

Please check the “Panel Matrix” for a list of standing seam panels that these products are now compatible with. This product works best when combined with one of our snow guard systems. Please visit our website for more information on our snow guards.
