The Science Behind LeafGuard
Protection from Clogged Gutters
The unique design of LeafGuard gutters makes them ideal for shedding debris while still allowing for maximum water flow. Despite having a full built-in hood covering the width of the top of the gutter, water still makes its way in through the front faced opening. This is made possible by the principle of liquid adhesion. Liquid adhesion works on the principle of that water molecules are attracted to the surface area of the gutter cover. This attraction adheres the water to the cover and since the cover is smooth and has a rounded curvature leading into the gutter, the water can flow freely along the surface into the gutter trough. A wonderful example of this process can be seen when water flows over the side of a glass. The water rolls over the side of the glass and adheres to sides as it gently flows down.
Why LeafGuard Works
The reason LeafGuard gutters are able to maintain the principle of liquid adhesion is because the molecules of water are attracted to the surface of the gutter, thereby adhering to the smooth, curved surface. The curved hood allows for the water to flow naturally and uninterrupted into the gutter trough, whereas a sharp corner would disrupt the adhesion and force the water to run off into the yard.
