From aluminum extrusion and finishing to powder-coating zinc plated steel, to structural calculations and complete fastening systems, we do it all.
TRA-Snow Brackets was founded by Terry Anderson, the owner of Anderson Associates Consulting. Through his work with Anderson Associates Consulting, Terry began to research a solution to all the common problems he saw caused by sliding snow and ice on roofs. Traveling to Europe, he studied how they successfully dealt with snow and ice. From their example of using cold roof systems and snow retention devices to keep the snow on their roofs, he came back to the US and designed snow retention devices for all types of roofs.
He has had great success with ski resorts such as: Beaver Creek, Colorado, Sun Peaks Canada and Grand Targhee Ski Resort in Alta, Wyoming. Terry's Snow Brackets or Snow Guards have been specially designed with each roof type in mind. They can be used on new construction or as retrofit on existing roofs.
His snow brackets have been tested to a fail point by Brigham Young University's Engineering Department. From these tests, BYU created special charts to determine the number of brackets or guards needed per roofing square based upon the roof pitch and the area's snow load.
TRA-Mage has had great success with their Snow Brackets or Snow Guards and Snow Fences keeping snow on the roof, and therefore preventing much roof damage to the buildings on which they are applied. Our snow brackets or snow guards and snow fences have gained international attention, and have been selected by many builders and property owners as an effective means of retaining snow on the roofs of their buildings. Terry is very much involved with his company, making sure that all customers get the help they need to know how many brackets will be sufficient and what layout will successfully keep the snow and ice from sliding. Through his leadership and expertise, TRA-Mage will continue to help stop roof damage from being a costly yearly problem.
