HOW CLEAN GUTTERS WORK
Klean Gutter’s underlying body is an innovative approach which started from classic gutter covers. Remember hooped gutter screens made from expanded metal? You’ve probably seen some blown into someone’s yard.
Klean Gutter's design takes an expanded metal design in an innovative approach to gutter covers. Klean Gutter’s design works differently, its patent-pending technology creates hundreds of thousands of touch points designed to pull water through the filter. Debris is naturally kept out by the surgical grade, fine micro filter, engineered to the Higginbotham ratio. You won’t find fine mesh in other systems because they can’t work with other designs.
Klean Gutter’s design also allows it to be installed at the same angle as your roof, a key element of current Higginbotham designs. Pitching with the roof helps the system shed debris on its own. Gutter covers that install flat act like a shelf and collect debris. You’ll find this important if you have fir and pine trees and small spring debris.
Klean Gutter has an added feature for heavy rains. It’s a single downward drop under the filter’s surface. This creates a long path through a fast water flow is compelled to follow. Unlike its earlier predecessors, Klean Gutter only needs one downward drop to accomplish this. Its technology is that effective!
Before you consider investing in gutter covers just because they say they have a “stainless steel filter”, consider this
- Gutter covers should keep out all debris, particularly pine/fir needles and spring debris, which is often small and gets through most gutter covers.
- The filter must come into contact with something under its surface to pull the water into the gutter below. Screens of any material, stainless steel or not, can and will act as a solid surface without contact points, allowing water to flow over them.
- The filter must have a way to clean of roof oils, which naturally flow out of roof shingles. If your filter can’t clean itself of oils, it will clog. The way accomplish this is with touch points from the body under the filter, but even this has to be done right for optimal cleaning
