LeafFilter gutter protection with XELA FilterShield uses the most effective filtration technology available. XELA FilterShield is a membrane that stretches over the LeafFilter and allows only water through. It is nearly 100% permeable and has self-cleaning properties; no organic matter or shingle grit can adhere to cause it to clog. The entire Filter is made of stainless steel and will not corrode or rust.
By keeping debris smaller than a grain of sand out of your gutter, nothing can get inside to cause gutter clog. The LeafFilter System protects your gutters from clogging and collecting harmful corrosion-promoting debris that can lead to cosmetic and structural damage to your home. It also eliminates climbing ladders for regular gutter cleaning.
During rainfall the water hits your roof and rolls down the shingles then across the membrane and seeps through. At this point the water goes through a number of small rivulets with small holes in them to further ensure that particles do not travel through to the gutter. LeafFilter with XELA FilterShield has been tested to block any particle larger than 100 microns.
LeafFilter is a quest that keeps in mind the future of water purification and environmental safety. It is a goal of Leaf Filter to give you the option of storing purified rainwater should you ever need it.
