RHINO GUTTER GUARD is a stainless steel micro-mesh over expanded aluminum product that yields the optimum micron size (440) to prevent all debris from entering the gutter system. This product utilizes a .024" aluminum body and lip that is mechanically fastened over the mesh laminate, creating an exponentially stronger product, in both compression and tension.The embossed texture feature deters debris from "sticking" to the product by minimizing surface contact area, thus augmenting the debris shedding.
The front leg of the product screws to the front lip of the gutter and the back upward bend (fascia shield) allows it to be screwed directly to the fascia, creating a slight forward slope. This installation creates unprecedented"box girder" strength, making the gutter assembly, which is inherently weak by nature, a completely closed member.The micro-mesh technology ensures that leaves, twigs, pine needles,oak tassels,shingle grit and other small debris will never breach the system to migrate into the gutters. The mesh is strategically sized to allow passage of pollen and dust so it is washed through during rainfall. It may be necessary from time to time to clean or remove stubborn debris (inorganic & organic) from the mesh surface to maintain the proper performance.
RHINO Gutter Guard is manufactured from 3000 series aluminum, stainless steel mesh, and 3000 series "embossed" aluminum (for the body and lip). The mesh is "hemmed" over the expanded metal and then roll formed to achieve its shape creating unprecedented lateral tension of the mesh, forcing it to be in constant contact with the substrate.
