Gutters are primarily designed to carry water away from the buildings foundations. Gutter protection maximises the performance of guttering systems. Guttering protection can be installed on buildings with either a tile or metal roof.
- Downpipes blocking up causing water to enter the roof, rotting roof timbers
- Dirty tank water
- Burning embers from bush fires igniting collected gutter debris
- Corrosion of your gutters due to gutters rusting and degrading from wet leaves and debris sitting in the gutters
- You having to climb up and clean out clogged rusty gutters and downpipes
- Birds nesting in your gutters
- Vermin and other unwanted pests entering your roof cavity.
During bushfire season it is critical that all your gutters are clean from leaves and debris. Ignition of leaves in gutters from embers from bush fire followed by the spread of fire into the roof cavity is a huge area of concern for buildings in fire prone areas.
New statutory regulations, AS3959:2009 (Building in a Bushfire Prone Area) recommends that all new or renovated buildings within bushfire prone areas have non-combustible leaf guards installed. In order for a system to comply with this standard it must have a fire rating of 5 or less (5 being the lowest rating).
