Blog What is a Reverse-Curve Gutter Guard? January 13, 2016February 1, 2017Jeremy KelseyGutter Protection Keeping your gutters free of debris, small objects and animals requires an effective, well-designed gutter system. At Gutter Helmet®, we offer more than mere gutter covers. We’ve created an innovative product, using a reverse-curve design that employs the principles of surface tension and gravity. Instead of manually cleaning your gutters, leave it to us and enjoy your weekends again. Gutter Helmet’s Unique Reverse-Curve Design The Gutter Helmet system includes a textured surface which rainwater clings to as it flows downward. The cover has a curved nose that extends past the edge of the gutter, yet it enables rainwater to flow naturally into the gutter system thanks to surface tension. Gutter Helmet’s reverse-curve gutter guard system offers four primary benefits. Stops debris that causes clogs Ensures rainwater flow Prevents damage to the roof, gutter and structure of the home Low-maintenance Effective Debris Filtering When the rainwater reaches the edge of the Gutter Helmet system, it goes through a small opening that is only 3/8″ wide. This stops debris, leaves and objects from entering gutters and clogging gutter systems. Only water can pass through. The debris falls to the ground or blows away, instead of clogging up the gutters. This also minimizes clean-up after storms or other natural events where a lot of leaves, twigs and debris typically fall on roofs and gutters. The Gutter Helmet system can handle over 22 inches of rain per hour without overflowing, which is twice the amount of the highest rain ever recorded in the United States!
