SnowShield

SnowShield is designed for the protection of air intake vents, to prevent snow and water from entering the building.

Thanks to its profile and cell structure, snow and water are separated effectively from the air flow. The main material of SnowShield is aluminium, which makes the structure frost-free.

Air intake occurs partly from the sides and bottom of SnowShield. The roof part slants and the bottom part is made of perforated aluminium.
