Rocky Mountain Snow Guards Inc.

Protecting People and Property with Permanent, Attractive and Effective Snow Retention Products and Designs.

Rocky Mountain Snow Guards (RSMG) is one of just a small handful of snow retention manufacturers in the U.S. that design and manufacture custom snow retention solutions for every type of roof.

RMSG is focused solely on rooftop snow retention, and since our founding in 2010, RMSG has designed and sold millions of snow guards, and many thousands of snow fence and snow bar systems throughout the U.S. and Canada. Our knowledge of rooftop snow retention continues to grow and that is reflected in the
continuous evolution of our extensive product offering.

Through our journey in rooftop snow retention, we have learned what works and what doesn’t. 

Our mission is simple: Permanent, Attractive, Effective. 

If it doesn’t meet those criteria, we don’t do it. We will continue to observe, test and innovate.
