The Mesh Lock Gutter Trim has a series of ‘locking’ teeth, which helps to distribute the load on the mesh.
The teeth are angled backwards so that if there is any pulling force of the mesh in the gutter, they lock in. They are positioned at regular intervals, allowing increased points of contact across the gutter.
Normally in 1 metre of standard gutter trim, there will be 4 points of contact where the screws fasten the mesh to the gutter, the Mesh Lock pattern increases the contact up to 20 times that of a standard gutter trim.
The Mesh Lock Gutter Trim’s patented design increases the load-bearing capacity and tear resistance of your gutter mesh. This will reduce the likelihood of your mesh collapsing when heavy hail, snow, animals or debris land on it.
Lab testing demonstrated that the Mesh Lock Gutter Trim increased the loadbearing capacity of all our gutter mesh by over 200%.
We recommend always installing 4mm Aluminium mesh with the Mesh Lock Gutter Trim as it is the most susceptible to tearing from the gutter fastenings and, therefore, benefits the most from an increase in strength.
