How Strong is The K Guard System?
Computer-Based Engineering studies have been conducted on the K Guard Leaf Free Gutter System to determine just how strong it is. Here are the amazing results:
- The K Guard System can support vertical loads on the front of the gutter of 35 pounds per foot of gutter. That is equal to 70 pounds per installed hanger.
- The K Guard hood can support 60 pounds per square foot of pressure, both in load and uplift, before flexing of the hood will take place.
How Will K Guard Look On My Home?
The smooth, curved appearance of the K Guard Leaf-Free Gutter system looks stunning on any home. The K Guard system is so stunning that it's often referred to as "the best-looking product on the market" and is much more attractive than standard residential (k-style) gutters. The K Guard system has also been known to blend in exceptionally well with a home's current architecture design, unlike other gutter systems that have sharp corners and vertical faces.
How Long Will K Guard Gutters Last?
The K Guard Leaf-Free Gutter system has no set lifespan. The coatings on both the gutters and hood will last for at least 20 years; the base materials won't corrode, and the internal hangers (which are safeguarded from the elements by the gutter and hood) will last almost indefinitely. When you choose K Guard, you can be sure that your new gutter system will last for many years to come.
Can The K Guard Hood Be Added to My Existing Gutters?
No, the K Guard system cannot be added to any pre-existing gutters. The K-Guard Leaf-Free Gutter System was designed and engineered to be a single complete system. The custom-formed components are optimized to perform with each other, but not with other open-top gutter components.
