Well-maintained gutters are integral to your home’s well-being. They direct rainwater away from your property to safeguard your roof, foundation and other essential components. While they need regular cleaning and inspection to keep them functional throughout the year, installing a rain gutter guard provides a long-term solution.

Gutter Surface Tension

Not all gutter guards, however, offer the same level of performance. Some use brushes; others utilize screens. While they keep leaves out, they still let dirt, seeds and other debris in. This still causes water to eventually overflow. Gutter Helmet®, on the other hand, applies the principle of surface tension. Here’s how it works:

What is Surface Tension?

A simple way to see surface tension in action is to hold a glass under running water. When water is about to spill over, observe how it bulges into a dome-like shape. This effect is caused by the molecules at the surface of the water clinging together because they have nothing else to hold on to. They create a seal, which also makes it possible for tiny objects to float.

How Does Gutter Helmet Use Surface Tension?

For superior performance, Gutter Helmet takes advantage of surface tension. It comes with a ribbed surface so water will stick to it as it flows through the system’s narrow opening. Meanwhile, debris will simply glide to the edge and fall to the ground. With these advanced features, your gutters will stay clog-free for years.

What Else Makes Gutter Helmet Ideal for My Home?

What makes Gutter Helmet more special is its unparalleled tensile strength. It uses heavy-duty aluminum alloy brackets to withstand harsh conditions, from heavy downpours to strong winds. It can also brace up to 22 inches of rain per hour, which is double the amount of rainfall ever recorded in the country by the U.S. Weather Bureau.

Apart from protection, this unique rain gutter guard also contributes to curb appeal. It comes with a PermaLife™ finish that resists fading, chalking, peeling and corrosion. It is available in a selection of colors to complement your home’s style.
