When selecting our product range we sought only the best quality systems of high density polyethylene (HDPE) gutter protection mesh available.
We have kept away from metal because in our experience over the years, we have seen many cases where metal meshes have caused corrosion to the roof and or gutters. If we wont fit a system to our own roofs, we aren't about to fit it to yours.
We also wanted to make sure that we could give you a gutter protection system that would flush the fine dirt & debris away, that stuff that would get in through any mesh.
Both of our meshes have been designed to withstand New Zealand's harsh climatic conditions for at least the time we guarantee them for, so you can rest easy knowing that whatever mesh you select, you are covered.
How it's installed
There are two basic methods of installing a screen gutter guard and all methods are a variation of one of these two, depending on the type of roof you have. Both are secured to the top out edge of your gutter system with a colour steel or copper 90° trim. The mesh is then secured to your roof either over long run iron or under a row of tiles.
Valleys are fitted in a similar fashion with the mesh once again going either over long run iron or under tiles.
When fitting over long run iron, the mesh is either secured to the roof with high tensile (0.55 BMT) saddle clips or pinned to the side of the riser dependent on the long run roof profile.
The finished look will vary between houses due to factors such as the pitch of the roof, type of roof and the height of the front of the gutter compared to your roof.
How it works
While almost any mesh that is fitted in a similar fashion will work when it comes to keeping leaf debris, birds and vermin out of your gutters, many fail at being a gutter protection system that can flush the gutters of the fine dirt and dust that will get through the mesh. Due to the adhesive properties of water, during heavy rain when you get the best flushing effect, water simply ‘sheets’ off the mesh.
All of our systems have been designed specifically for gutter protection and will collect 100% of rainwater. When the gutters are free of large debris, the fine particles are flushed away to the downpipes, thereby eliminating the build up of any sludge in the bottom of the gutters where seeds can germinate and grass grow.
Years of research and development went into finding a design that would not only break the surface tension of the water, but to also direct it in to the gutters. Meshes that were designed for other industries, then adapted as a gutter screen, simply do not have this ability and end up becoming part of the problem and not the solution.
In the photo on the bottom, you can quite clearly see the water sheeting off the bottom of the mesh with very little going through. This would not produce enough flow in your gutters to flush out the dirt and dust whereas in the photo above it, the bottom of the mesh is dry with all the water going through the mesh
Make the top choice for your gutter protection.
