There should be two rows of them. I had an installer use only one row a couple of years back and made them do it over.
No they are additional braces for heavy snow load areas... If you are not busting snow off a Fairclough after each storm then you really better have the snow struts... Even then these covers need to have the snow removed so the don't collapse..

I have some pics somewhere I can upload..

Not my pic but it shows the struts..
