I've always been partial to Alpine. Never used their systems for tile, but have on several occasions for slate. Good people with a personel touch to service.

Disregard the message below. Apparently Mullane makes the same Fit Rite materials in aluminum alloy. Thanks.

I have been acting in an advisory capacity for a non-profit in Cambridge, Mass. They are engaged in an adaptive re-use project in which the structure has a clay tile roof. I helped them specify a Mullane FitRite Series #5 for spanish tile brass mount/copper rail system. The historic district commission approved the snow fence (the building is a 'landmark') and threw a curve ball:

They have given permission to use aluminum snow rail instead of brass/copper, if so desired

The non-profit's first question to me was "How much can we save if we use aluminum mounts and rails?" I don't think such a thing is even available for tile roofs, and told them so. Am I right? A quick search on the internet didn't yield any results.

Does anyone know of alternative materials for snow fences on tile roofs?
