Gutter Helmet®: Utilizing the Surface Tension Principle

By April 4, 2017October 18th, 2023No Comments

Keeping gutters in their best shape is a must because they are integral components of your home. They protect your roofing, foundation, and landscaping by directing rainwater away from your premises. A smart way to keep them functioning for years is to invest in a gutter protection system.


At Chattahoochee Gutter Company, we offer Gutter Helmet®. This product has innovative features to preserve your gutter’s top condition. Unlike ordinary rain gutter guards, it uses the surface tension principle for superior performance. Here’s how it works:

What is Surface Tension?

Surface tension is the property of liquids that helps them withstand external factors. It is the effect when liquid molecules respond cohesively with one another. You can observe this by holding a glass under a running faucet, where the water clings on the surface. Furthermore, this allows them to handle weight, preventing small items to submerge. Some great examples include insects or paper clips floating on water.

How Does Gutter Helmet Apply This Principle?

Gutter Helmet has a ribbed surface and a unique nose-forward design that extends past your gutters. By applying the concept of surface tension and gravity, these features ensure that water adheres to the surface as it flows downward into your gutters. As water enters through a narrow opening, debris fall off the edge and to the ground.

What Else is Gutter Helmet Good At?

Gutter Helmet has exceptional tensile strength to withstand heavy downpours. In fact, it can handle 22 inches of rain per hour, which exceeds the highest rainfall recorded in the U.S. Thanks to the aluminum alloy brackets, it will strengthen your gutters and keep them intact through the years.

Aside from protection, Gutter Helmet also offers lasting beauty for your home. It comes with a PermaLife™ finish that resists fading, chalking, and corrosion. It is available in a lovely range of colors to complement your exterior.

For your peace of mind, Gutter Helmet is backed by a transferrable lifetime warranty that covers materials and product performance. This makes it the best choice among the rain gutter guards on the market.
