This micro-mesh powder-coated aluminum screen is great for extreme environments and coastal applications that can cause some competitive products to corrode, and keeps out even the smallest debris.
Designed with three 90º “steps” at the front for greater strength, this guard snaps into gutter hem, helping to force water to track into the gutter, while reducing the effects of water-streaks and tiger-striping across the gutter. The center beads also add strength, while helping keep water from surface tensioning across the screen. The angled back edge holds tight by locking into hidden gutter hangers.
E-Z-Micro Mesh comes in 4 foot lengths and 5″ or 6″ widths.
