They were made by hand. The bends were made on a 4' brake (http://josephjenkins.com/store/hand-brake-tennsmith-s48-22.html). The first fold was done with hand tongs (http://josephjenkins.com/store/hand-tongs-and-seamers/) and the second fold was pounded down.

Joe,

In the article detailing, the snow apron with standing seams were the seams of the pans made by hand from flat sheet or were premade standing seams panels used as the starting material?

In NY's Capital Region (Albany-Schenectady-Troy-Saratoga) standing seam panels are the "traditional" detail seen on eaves when snow pans/slides/apron are desired. Copper, galvanized steel and aluminum are all regularly used on slate and non-slate roofs. Many old homes have terne-coated steel or tin in the same style. Any metal shop can easily make these.

.... and another possibility is copper shingles. Revere and other make coper shingle 4' long and 9" tall. Would these work for a snow arpon? The existing apron is 3' tall. The roof pitch is steep.

Hello,

Is it possible or recommended to use standing seam roofing panels for a snow belt? I can find many suppliers of standing seam sections in 8 or 10 foot lengths. If cut down to three foot lengths and then trimmed as needed will there be any unforeseen problems?

Any different advice on where to get copper for a 3 foot snow belt?

Jim
