The SnoFree™ SCH-PBR Shingle Cable Holder for PBR exposed fastener roofs is a low cost method to control any ice dams that would form on a building with an existing metal roof of exposed fasteners, commonly known as a PBR panel. With 2 passes covering each rib or specific ribs, the SFP-SCH will create open sections for water to safely flow from the roof without the possibility to refreeze over unheated portions of the roof. The shingle cable holder system gives an aesthetic look compared to standard serpentine heat cable to any structure while keeping a cleaner method to eliminate ice dam issues. All SFP systems come standard with a durable 30 year Kynar finish to match most desired looks.
