Manufacturer DescriptionTRA Snow and Sun was originally named TRA Snow Brackets when it was founded by Terry Anderson, the owner of Anderson Associates Consulting, in 1996. Although he had years of experience solving roof problems, it wasn’t until Anderson traveled to snow areas of Europe that he finally discovered how to prevent damage caused by snow and ice sliding off roofs. Learning that the European solutions were very different from standard practices in the US, he brought that knowledge back to America and was able to design Snow Brackets™ (also sometimes referred to as snow guards), and Snow Fences for all types of roofs as well as to help establish the concept of cold roof systems in the US.
TRA Snow and Sun’s Snow Retention devices have demonstrated great success in ski resorts such as Beaver Creek, Colorado, Sun Peaks in Canada and Grand Targhee Ski Resort in Alta, Wyoming.
Our Snow Retention devices were tested to a fail point by Brigham Young University’s Engineering Department. Using the resulting data, engineers created special charts to determine the number of brackets needed per roofing square based upon the roof pitch and the area’s snow load. Each job benefits from this focus on the specific factors of each roof.
TRA Snow and Sun expanded it’s product line to include Sun products when it was obvious no one in the solar panel attachment industry could provide the same service, engineering or value that is available with our snow retention products. The result is our Solar Mounting Solutions for solar panels. Available for all types of roofs, our Sun products reflect the company’s focus on engineering entire systems and focusing on each unique roof circumstance.
TRA Snow and Sun’s products help provide you with safety from the dangers and expense of sliding snow and ice, effective and cost effective mounting systems for solar energy collectors, and flexible roof flashings which have gained international recognition. Over 17 years, our products have been selected by hundreds of satisfied builders and property owners.
