The LeafBlaster Gutter Protection System consists of three main components: a front anodized aluminum drip edge; a type 316 stainless steel V-Bend mesh filter mesh; and a water syphon control strip under the mesh. Our US Patent Pending LeafBlaster gutter guard can be installed on various gutter types such as Ogee, half round, fascia, curved and box. It can also be installed on various types of roofs such as asphalt shingle, wood shake, flat tile, Spanish tile and stone coated steel. LeafBlaster’s specifications were uniquely designed so that it simply slips under the roof shingles and rests on top of the roof-deck/water-barrier (tar paper) to “clamp” the gutter guard in place and stabilize its structure. The solid aluminum front fits snugly to the front lip of the gutter via three self-tapping screws for each four foot length section. LeafBlaster should be installed at the same pitch as the roof (up to a 6/12 pitch) to get the best performance of debris shedding off. However, it’s not necessary to install LeafBlaster at an angle greater then a 30 degree pitch (6/12).
Aluminum Channel Frame
The aluminum channel frame is an extruded aluminum support frame that is anodized to further protect itself from the environment and to make it more adaptable to be installed on a copper gutter. The anodizing process converts the aluminum surface into an extremely hard, durable, corrosion resistant, long-lasting aluminum oxide finish. Anodizing also responds favorably to current governmental regulations because it is one of the most environmentally friendly industrial processes. Since this process is a reinforcement of a naturally occurring oxide process, it is non-hazardous and produces no harmful or dangerous by products. Anodized aluminum is used around the world as highly durable exteriors in commercial buildings such as one of the world’s tallest buildings, the Sears Tower in Chicago, Illinois. Other revolutionized uses are in scientific instruments, home appliances, satellites in space for harsh environmental protection, staircases in skyscrapers and a host of other uses.
V-Bend Stainless Steel Mesh
The type 316 stainless steel V-Bend mesh filter allows more than 100 inches of hourly rainfall to filter through to your gutter. The revolutionary V-Bend technology allows the mesh to remain free standing without the added cost of a support bracket underneath. The small corrugations in the mesh give it rigidity and strength to sustain itself above your gutter.
Type 316 is molybdenum-bearing austenitic stainless steel which is more resistant to general corrosion and pitting/crevice corrosion than the conventional chromium nickel austenitic lower quality stainless steels such at types 302 and 304 or any other standard stainless steel alloys. The pots and pans manufacturers that are highly promoted at home and garden shows for their non-corrosive attributes are only type 304 stainless steel. The 316 alloy offers higher creep, stress-to-rupture and tensile strength at elevated temperatures. It also resists attack of marine and corrosive industrial atmospheres which makes it an ideal component for LeafBlaster. Type 316 stainless steel alloy is widely used in the food, marine and medical industries.
