Gutter Helmet®: Applying the Science of Surface Tension

By August 17, 2017October 18th, 2023No Comments

Given the gutters’ significant role in keeping your home dry and damage-free, it’s important to keep them in top condition at all times. They maintain your home’s structural integrity by directing water away from your home. A practical way to keep them healthy is to install a gutter protection system.

Fortunately, we offer Gutter Helmet®, the leading choice for gutter protection in the country. It has unique features that will keep your gutters clog-free for a long time. Unlike a typical gutter shield, it applies the science of surface tension for excellent efficiency. Let us explain how it works.

Defining Surface Tension

Surface tension is the characteristic of liquids that allows them to withstand external forces. Through cohesion of similar molecules, it causes liquids to behave in various ways. You can observe this when you put a glass under a running faucet. Since there is no other similar molecule on the other side to grasp to, the water molecules cling to each other on the surface.

Gutter Helmet’s Surface Tension

Gutter covers today come in various choices, such as the filtration and reverse-curve types. The latter, like Gutter Helmet, uses surface tension for an efficient water flow. Its ribbed surface allows water to adhere to the surface and direct it into the system. In fact, it can handle up to 22 inches of rain per hour without overflowing. This protects your roof, foundation, and landscaping from serious damage.

More of Gutter Helmet’s Features

Unlike an ordinary gutter shield, Gutter Helmet has a small slit and no vertical openings. These block leaves, twigs, and other debris from entering the system. Then, with its patented nose-forward design, the debris will simply slide off the edge and fall harmlessly to the ground. This ensures that you don’t have to clean your gutters again.

We attach this top-quality aluminum gutter protection system with heavy-duty mounting brackets. This is why it will remain in place no matter how rough the conditions are. Furthermore, it features a PermaLife™ finish that resists chalking, fading, and corrosion. By offering lasting performance and beauty for your home, Gutter Helmet is clearly the ultimate solution for gutter problems.
