Box Gutters and Blue Mountain Gutter Mesh: A Winning Combination for Effective Gutter Protection

by | Jun 2, 2023 | Bushfire & Ember Guard

Box gutters, although hidden within the roof structure and often overlooked, play a vital role in efficiently channelling rainwater away from the building. They are positioned within the body of a roof and are typically not visible from the ground. Box gutters are enclosed on all sides between roof sheets or behind parapet walls, seamlessly integrating with the overall roof structure. However, due to their design and location, box gutters are prone to debris accumulation, making effective gutter protection crucial. In this article, we will delve into what box gutters are, their characteristics, and how Blue Mountain Gutter Mesh provides specialized solutions for protecting box gutters.


What is a Box Gutter?

Box gutters, also known as square or rectangular gutters, are an integral part of a roof’s drainage system. Unlike traditional gutters that are attached to the roof’s edge, box gutters are concealed within the roof structure. They can be varied in shape and size, and can have any combination of roof types fixed over them. Box gutters are typically boxed in on all sides, ensuring a discreet appearance and allowing for smooth water runoff. They are commonly made from metal, such as steel or aluminium, to ensure durability and resistance against weather elements.
