The roof structure and roof avalanche protection must be dimensioned according to relevant snow conditions. The roof should be cleared of snow and ice so that no spot loads are formed, which can overload the roof structure on the building. In the event of a roof avalanche, both the roof covering and roof safety equipment can come loose if the snow is not shovelled away.Roof safety against snow and ice.
