Mini Snow Guards are snow guards that are much smaller than a regular sized snow guard. As snow on your metal roof melts and basically forms a glacier, snow guards, whether mini or regular sized, can help save you money by protecting your rain gutters and property as the glacier slides off the roof. Typically mini snow guards stand about an inch high and are about an inch wide. The base ranges anywhere from 2-3 inches long.
They are useful in situations where a larger snow guard may not fit such as narrow valleys or in overhangs.
