Gutter protection systems act as leaf filters. Polyethylene mesh is a type of gutter guard which
is mostly used in many homes across Australia, New Zealand and America.
Components of polyethylene mesh are HDPE material in combination with UV stabilizers and
color pigments. HDPE material is easily recyclable. It also does not leak any toxic chemicals into
soil or water. So Quality of mesh depends on quality of HDPE material used. It is extruded at
extremely high temperatures as the melting process is occurring at specific levels. Ultra Violet
chemical is combined with the color pigments. Once blended, the material is extruded through
uniquely designed mould from which the design of the mesh is achieved.
Earlier, every mesh had same color and was of same design. Now, it is possible to manufacture
mesh with variety of colors and designs depending on user's choice.
Manufacturing of mesh includes parameters like weight and length of roll where weight of role is
decided by weight per meter of the mesh. Gutter guard mesh is manufactured always keeping in
mind safety regulations.
