How LeafFilter Gutter Protection Works
LeafFilter™ gutter guards have been scientifically designed to create the optimal gutter protection for your home. LeafFilter’s micro mesh gutter guards, combined with your existing gutters, creates a completely sealed system that prevents anything from entering your gutters — except for water.
LeafFilter™ is designed around the idea of surface tension. When water flows down your roof towards your gutters and passes over the LeafFilter™ gutter protection system, the water is pulled through the micro-mesh screen and into your gutters.
LeafFilter™ Gutter Guards Consist of Five Main Parts
LeafFilter micro mesh gutter guards utilize a medical grade stainless steel micro mesh filter. The micro mesh will not rust or corrode, but more importantly, nothing is able to permanently adhere to its surface. The holes on LeafFilter’s micro mesh gutter guard are 50 microns fine, so not even a grain of sand can get into your gutters. Only water gets into your gutters – guaranteed!
The LeafFilter™ micro-mesh screen is supported by a patented rigid uPVC frame. uPVC (Unplasticized Poly Vinyl Chloride) is a long-lasting home exterior material that is fade and temperature resistant.LeafFilter™ also contains a titanium dioxide coating that acts as a UV block or “sunscreen,” aiding in color fastness by reflecting ultraviolet rays.
The center I-beam and internal brackets provide unparalleled strength against heavy loads and support the LeafFilter™ micromesh frame.
LeafFilter will install hidden internal brackets every 12-18” in your gutters. These internal brackets are made out of aluminum to provide additional strength against heavy loads and supports the LeafFilter Gutter Protection frame.
The subtle drip-edge on the front of LeafFilter™ helps keep the front of the gutter clean. Leaves, pine needles, and other debris are diverted over the drip edge while water is pulled through the micro mesh gutter guard into your gutters.
