1b. NOMO® Calculator, found on this webpage following this link - a computer program to calculate the amount and generate an installation pattern on a square or rectangular roof surface | Copyright © Caneias 2005-2021 
  • Roof material producer
  • Roof material (i.e. roof slate or roof tile model )
  • Roof shape
  • Roof length
  • Distance from the eave to the ridge
  • Roof pitch
  • Snow load where the building is located as a function of the height above mean sea level
1c. NOMO® BETA  mounting pattern - on clay and concrete roof tiles
50% of the calculated numbers of the NOMO® Beta snow stoppers are be mounted on each roof tile from the eave on the roof surface. 
The remaining 50% is evenly distributed over the rest of the roof surface, but not on the two top rows. | copyright © caneias®
1d. NOMO® ALPHA / NOMO® ZETA  mounting pattern - on clay and concrete roof tiles
50% of the calculated NOMO® Alpha and NOMO® Zeta snow stoppers are mounted on every second roof tile from the eave and upwards on the roof surface, ref. NOMO® Calculator©
The remaining 50%  of NOMO® Alpha or NOMO® Zeta are mounted in a diagonal pattern on the roof surface©, from left to right©, ref. NOMO® Calculator©
Alternatively mounted in a diagonal pattern on the roof surface from right to left©, ref. NOMO® Calculator©
The horizontal distance between each snow stopper can vary from row 3 as an example and can be a maximum of x roof tiles and minimum equal to zero © i.e. a NOMO® snow stopper on each roof tile, ref. NOMO® Calculator©

1e. Combination of mounting patterns
Based on the basic system / rule, there are numerous combinations of mounting patterns which can be generated, ref. NOMO® Calculator© as:
  • DC3SNMP™© (Dynamic Calculation Snow Stopper System NOMO® Mounting Pattern™©). copyright © caneias®
Furthermore DC3SNMP™© is a function (1) of:
  • Roof Avalanche Distribution Factor™© - RADF™©, ref. NOMO® Calculator©
RADF™ describes the distribution factor of absorption of avalanche forces in a defined roof surface  (Roof Avalanche Distribution Factor), RADF™ = (n NOMO® x  FP™) / number of roof tiles.
FP™ =  (FootPrint™) per NOMO®
n NOMO® = the number of NOMO® for a defined roof surface.
Copyright © Caneias
Furthermore the NOMO® Calculator™© meet requirements (2) in the definition:
  • Foot Print™© - FP™©, ref. NOMO® Calculator©
FP™ (FootPrint™) describes the total number of NOMO® that is calculated for a defined roof surface multiplied with FP™ of one individual NOMO® = n NOMO® x  FP™. 
FPTM = Fotavtryck för en NOMO®
n NOMO® = the number of NOMO® for a defined roof surface.
Copyright © Caneias
Furthermore the NOMO® Calculator™ meets requirements (3) in the definition:
  • Total Perpendicular Metal Surface™© - TPMS™©, ref. NOMO® Calculator©
TPMS™ = Total Perpendicular Metal Surface™. Defines the cross section  of the wire along the entire length perpendicular against the snow for each NOMO®
n NOMO® = the number of NOMO® for a defined roof surface.
Copyright © Caneias
Furthermore the NOMO® Calculator™ meets requirements (4) in the definition:
Contact Cut Surface Length™© -CCSL™©, ref. NOMO® Calculator©: 
CCSL™© = The length of the outer and inner surface of one NOMO® snow stopper e.g. steel wire where the snow has to create a fracture and slide / avalanche past a NOMO® snow stopper 
Sum CCSL™ = (n NOMO® x CCSL™) for a defined roof surface
n NOMO® = the number of NOMO® for a defined roof surface.
