SSAB supplies Piristeel with high-strength galvanized precision tubes, which are further processed and painted in Kauhava, Finland to match the color of the roof. Snow guards are available in eight different standard colors. Pisko snow guards protect the surroundings of people and buildings by preventing uncontrolled snow and ice falling from roofs. Snow guards must be installed in all buildings with a roof steeper than 1:8. The snow guards should always be installed over the entire length of the eaves, not just at the access entrance. It is the best solution in terms of security.

Piristeel's ladder system is manufactured by using the riveting method from SSAB's high-strength galvanized precision tubes. The mechanical, perforated roughening on the sides of the ladder increases friction and thus provides safety in all conditions. To extend the ladder, the ends of the pipes are shortened and thus the ladder can easily be extended to the desired length. The connection point of the ladder is secured with screw connections.
