There are many different gutter protection systems on the market, but the best gutter covers are those that employ the principle of surface tension. Gutter Helmet® utilizes this principle along with gravity to achieve long-term results. Read on as ABC Seamless explains how this works:

The Science Behind Gutter Helmet®: All About Surface Tension

What Is Surface Tension?

Surface tension is the cohesive force between liquid molecules, which causes the molecules to cling to the surface and form a “film.” You can see this principle at work by pouring a few drops of water on top of a coin. As you add more drops, the drops begin piling on top of each other until there is a small dome of water on the coin.

Application of Surface Tension

Gutter Helmet uses a ribbed surface to strengthen surface tension. Water adheres to the surface as it enters the system. The system can handle up to 22 inches of rainfall per hour, which is why you can rest assured knowing that your home will stay dry and damage-free even in severe weather.

Gutter Helmet’s Other Features

Unlike other gutter guards, Gutter Helmet comes with a unique nose-forward design that sweeps leaves, twigs, pine needles, and other debris off the edge of your roof, where they fall safely to the ground. This keeps your gutters clean and clear with no work on your part.

Gutter Helmet uses reinforced heavy-gauge aluminum alloy brackets to strengthen your gutters during heavy downpours, high winds, and strong impacts. In addition, it features a PermaLife™ finish to resist peeling, chalking, fading, and corrosion. We back Gutter Helmet with a lifetime warranty to add an extra layer of protection to your investment.
