PERTH AMBOY N.J.–MicroGuard, a gutter screen with microfiltration technology from Englert Inc. is now available in a reverse bend version. The new option gives contractors more versatility in using the screen for differing gutter and roof situations.
Unlike the traditional four-foot long segment of MicroGuard which is attached to the front of the gutter while the back sits on the back bracket, facing down, the front of the Reverse Bend MicroGuard is attached to the front of the gutter but its back faces up. It fits to the drip edge, preventing water from coming off the roof and going behind the gutter.
The new screen offers the same angled micro-perforations as traditional MicroGuard, blocking large debris from entering the gutter while allowing rainwater to flow through freely. Each four foot section is easy to install, requiring only three zip screws. This guarantees secure and maintenance-free leaf protection. The sections are made of sturdy 032 gauge aluminium and have 2000 holes per lineal foot to maximize drainage.
