Welcome to REES snow retention systems

We are your manufacturer and partner for construction parts and accessories for various types of metal roofs.

Originating from the tinsmith's shop Rees in Oberstdorf, we have been dealing with the execution of metal roofs for decades. The location of our handicraft business in the Allgäu Alps and the associated activity in one of the snowiest areas of Germany and the Austrian Kleinwalsertal, always brings forth new experiences, which we constantly incorporate into the development of our products.

With our comprehensive know-how, we offer excellent solutions that function reliably and guarantee high product and service quality for years to come.

On this homepage you will find information about:
- Snow retention systems, steps and walking gratings, solar holders and our clip product range.
- Product descriptions, mounting instructions, tendering texts.

Clamp holder for steps and walking gratings V2A

Clamp holder for steps and walking gratings will be mounted on double standing seams of metal-roofs. Suitable for roof pitches up to 40 degrees. To meet the EN – 516 requirements (European standards) you have to make sure, that the distance between each holder is not bigger than 80 cm, resp. 31.5 inches. The clip distance on the sub-construction of the roof, has to comply with the technical rules for the German plumbing trade. The clamp holders have to be mounted on the at least 25mm resp. 0.98 inches high double-standing-seam and only at the areas of the fixing or sliding clips. Older roofs have to be audited before mounting, to check if the double-standing-seams are damaged or if the sub-construction is broken resp. spoiled somehow. It is necessary, that the seams are absolutely intact! Designation according to the expert regulations of the german-plumping-craftsmanship
