How Klean Gutter Works
Function defines form.
Every aspect of Klean Gutter is designed in pursuit of performance. Klean Gutter’s patented design takes an expanded metal design in an innovative approach to gutter covers. Debris is naturally kept out by the surgical grade, fine microfilter, engineered to the Higginbotham ratio. Fine mesh can’t be found in other systems because it just doesn’t work with other designs. From there the cleanest gutter is possible.
Fundamental technology and design determines long-term performance.
Klean Gutter’s underlying body is a new approach to classic, expanded metal gutter guard designs. There are more than 30 different expanded metal shapes, and even more expanded metal sizes. Additionally, expanded metal can be positioned in 8 different directions. Each style and size has a different reaction to water: some work and some fail. Klean Gutter embodies the most effective style, size, and direction. Klean Gutter is designed for homeowners who need the ultimate in gutter guard performance.
Designed with a homeowner’s needs in mind.
Klean Gutter can be installed two ways: slide underneath the roof shingles or mounted to the fascia. Fascia mount doesn’t touch the shingles and under the shingle installation is a shingle manufacturer approved installation methodology. Again, this means that sliding the product beneath the roof shingles will void NO shingle manufacturer warranties.
What if the system could shed debris all by itself?
Klean Gutter is designed to be installed at the same angle as the roof. This is key element of Higginbotham designs. Pitching with the roof helps the system shed debris on its own, since gutter covers that install flat act like a shelf and collect debris. The product is pitched with either installation method. Provides extreme performance. By design.
An added feature for exceptional performance.
For heavy rains, Klean Gutter has downward channels under the filter’s surface. This creates long paths a fast water flow is compelled to follow.The product forces water down through the mesh into the gutter, rather than letting the water run over the edge of the cover. It’s a massive improvement in performance when compared with competing gutter guards.
Groundbreaking technology, gutter widths, different installation methods: we thought of it all.
The two sizes of Klean Gutter are compatible with both 5- and 6-inch gutters. For the cold months, a heat cable can be added under the main surface of the gutter cover. In snow and ice conditions, when a heat cable is installed, heat can radiate up through the porous filter, to melt snow or ice. Heat is more efficiently used in Klean Gutter than in other dealer-installed products that heat the metal of the gutter covers rather than the ice or snow. No more unnecessary snow and ice concerns.
