This lightweight steel panel is approximately 4 feet by 1 foot and interlocks together from eave to ridge, just like Rare’s Ironwood Shake panel. The custom designed ridge-capping interlocks along the ridge as well so the result is little or no exposed fasteners on your roof. This new profile comes in a variety of Energy Star qualified colors and is made from the same durable steel substrate as the rest of Rare’s enduring product line.

LeakBarrier PS200MU Ice and Water Armor is a self-adhesive, glass fiber reinforced, modified bituminous underlayment especially for metal roofing. It helps protect a building’s deck or internal structure against leaks caused by ice and water damming and wind-driven rain. PS200MU is specially formulated for use in high temperature environments. The upper side is made of a nonabrasive polyolefinic film that has anti-skid properties for good walkability. Two key attributes of a metal roofing underlayment are that it slides under the metal roof without scratching it; and that it is tolerant of high temperatures often reached beneath a metal roof. PS200MU offers both of these features. PS200MU is highly effective in critical roofing areas such as valleys, ridges, coping joints, chimneys, vents, dormers, skylights, and low-slope sections.

Snow guard
SnowBreaker is a polycarbonate snow guard that minimizes the dangers of rooftop sliding snow and ice by slicing the wintery mix into smaller pieces so it can safely come off a roof. Designed for metal roofs, SnowBreaker can be mechanically fastened or adhesive mounted. Because adhesive mounting requires at least 50-degree Fahrenheit temperatures for 30 days in order to cure properly, a peel-and-stick version has been made available for year round application when those weather conditions are not possible. SnowBreaker is pleasing to the eye, easy to install and a very cost-effective way to help prevent damage caused by the sudden release of snow and ice. SnowBreaker initially functions like a typical snow guard by anchoring the frozen mass of snow and ice on a roof. But as metal roofing panels heat in the sun or warmer weather and the frozen mass begins to melt, SnowBreaker slices it into safer, smaller pieces before reaching the roof’s edge. The product has a forward cutting edge and tucked-back rear support that together form a triangular, pointed shape that acts like a fin to break up the snow and ice.
