Since its founding in 1994, Sno Gem has grown to become an internationally respected provider of innovative, high quality snow retention systems for metal roofing. Starting with the Original Polycarbonate snow guard, Sno Gem has grown to include multiple product lines for metal roofing and other roof systems.
In 2014 the company leveraged its over 50 years of experience in the architectural sheet metal and roofing market to develop a family of roof accessory attachment clamps. Made from aircraft-grade aluminum, the new clamps can be used to attach virtually anything to metal roof surfaces without penetrating or piercing the metal.
These clamps include the Gem Clamp, Sno Cube and Sno Blockade Cube which are used to attach our exciting and innovative Gem Series, iClad and Sno Blockade snow retention systems, respectively. Sno Gem’s clamps are available for all of the most common types of standing seam metal roofs.
In October 2012, with 4 flourishing businesses and over 150 patents in various industries, the entrepreneurial Smeja family created a consumer product company engaged in the design and development of various cutting-edge, retail merchandise. That is when Limitless Innovations, Inc. was born. Limitless Innovations, Inc. is located in Chicago’s Northwest Suburb of McHenry, Illinois with a purpose that is simple, to provide the consumer with the most innovative solutions for everyday problems, and do it with style. Limitless Innovations, Inc. identified a need and an opportunity in the technology market and developed the ChargeHub, a multi-port USB charging station with a unique set of features, not previously seen in any off-the-shelf products. The innovative design and capabilities of the ChargeHub hit the red carpet at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), one of the largest technology shows in the world. Then, among thousands of new products in the field, it was the ChargeHub under lights and fanfare that was awarded Best of CES 2014 and Best of CES 2016 by iPhone Life Magazine as one of the most innovative new iOS related products. With the evolution of the market and the world of ever-changing technology, keep your eye on Limitless Innovations, Inc. in 2017 for more innovative products, without limitations.

Designed by industry professionals with over 50 years of commercial sheet metal and roofing experience, the Universal Composite Panel System (UCPS) 1000 Series raises the bar in ACM panel attachment. The UCPS 1000 Series incorporates several unique design features not yet seen in the industry including a hybrid design, tubular construction, and a concealed drainage system.
The hybrid design of the UCPS 1000 system allows for either a wetseal or rainscreen installation, an option that was previously unseen among ACM panel attachment systems. Additionally, you can stock the same parts for both wetseal and rainscreen wall systems saving you money and warehouse space.
The UCPS 1000 also incorporates a first-of-its-kind concealed drainage system eliminating unsightly weep holes. The UCPS 1000 received perfect marks on the rigorous AAMA 508 test and scored a perfect V1/W1 rating on the slightly less demanding AAMA 509 test.
Installer safety was a top priority when engineering the UCPS 1000 system. Our tubular design keeps the hands of installers safe by encapsulating the rivets and fasteners and is sure to be a favorite of installers and architects alike.
