Our 4mm aluminium gutter mesh lowers your risk of clogged gutters and expensive flood and pest-related damage. The mesh helps stop possums and other animals getting into your gutters and roof, and keeps large and medium-sized debris and leaves such as silky oak leaves, gum leaves and gumnuts out of your gutters and downpipes.
Lightweight and flexible, our 4mm aluminium gutter mesh comes in ready-made rolls with all the screws and saddles or clips you need for fast and easy installation. The mesh and componentry is available in 27 COLORBOND® colours to ensure it discreetly blends with your roof and property.
By keeping medium and large leaves out of your gutters, our 4mm aluminium mesh significantly reduces the need for regular gutter maintenance around your property. In turn, this lowers the risks associated with working at heights on ladders and roofs – and lowers the cost of hiring someone else to do it.
Blue Mountain Co 4mm Aluminium Gutter Mesh will provide great protection against large and medium foliage.
Blue Mountain Co 4mm Aluminium Gutter Mesh is a bushfire compliant mesh, meaning it is a safe, non-combustible material that can be used in bushfire zones as gutter guard. Note: Only “ember guard compliant” mesh will keep both leaves and embers out of your gutters, providing maximum defence against ember attack. That’s why we recommend our 2mm Steel gutter mesh for all homes in requiring protection against embers.
Aluminium mesh can provide a good barrier against pests and vermin attempting to enter your roof cavity, preventing wild animals from making your home their home.
Aluminium is an ideal solution for projects where budgets are limited.
Cut the mesh to the shape of the ridge capping. Overlap the mesh above the gutter and join using a metal screw.
When joining two pieces of mesh, overlap the mesh by 20mm. Place a metal screw through the centre of the overlap.
Cut the mesh around the edge of the ridge capping. Overlap the mesh above the gutter and join using a metal screw.
INSTALLATION TIP: As a guide, tighten the screw to the point where the rubber washer begins to compress.
Clean out all gutters to remove leaves and debris, before fitting Blue Mountain Co Gutter Mesh.
Identifying the ideal mesh or meshes for your property depends on a number of factors, including the types of vegetation around your property, your bushfire risks and whether you live in a hail- or snow-prone area. For assistance selecting the best gutter mesh for your home or building, use our handy Mesh Matcher tool.
All our gutter mesh materials and componentry come with a 12 year warranty from date of purchase. However, as with all warranties, conditions apply.
Yes. Blue Mountain Co aluminium gutter mesh is compatible for use with COLORBOND® steel roofs.
Many gutter mesh products are sold as being “bushfire compliant”. However, it’s important to understand whether the product you’re choosing is only compliant for use as a gutter guard in bushfire-prone areas, or whether it’s also compliant for use as an ember guard.
While all correctly specified “gutter guard compliant” meshes will keep leaves out of your gutters, only “ember guard compliant” meshes will keep embers out too, providing superior bushfire protection. For a mesh to be ember guard compliant, it must have an aperture of 2mm or less and be made from corrosion-resistant steel, aluminium or bronze (for BAL 12.5, 19 and 29) or corrosion resistant steel or bronze (for BAL 40 and FZ).
All Blue Mountain Co gutter mesh is compliant for use as a gutter guard in bushfire-prone areas, however, only our 2mm steel mesh is also ember guard compliant.
At Blue Mountain Co, we believe that you should protect yourself against the risk of fires igniting in any area of your property, including your gutters, roof cavities and wall spaces.
Choosing an ember guard compliant mesh could save lives and property.
That’s why we recommend our ember guard compliant 2mm corrosion-resistant steel gutter mesh for all homes in bushfire-prone areas.
If you live in a hail- or snow-prone area, we recommend choosing a steel gutter mesh product as steel offers superior strength for withstanding the threats posed by the weight of accumulated fallen hail and/or snow.
Our gutter mesh kits are all-inclusive, so they contain everything you need for your chosen installation.
All our gutter mesh comes in all-inclusive kits, including all the metal screws and plastic stitching screws you need for installation. Using other screws will void the warranty on your product. If you run out of screws, contact Blue Mountain Co for additional screws.
If you don’t have enough saddles for your installation, contact us and we’ll send you more. Do not use your own saddles as this will void the warranty on your product.
Yes. All aluminium gutter mesh comes with trim for installation. Using trim will improve your gutter mesh performance.
Installing gutter mesh will significantly reduce the volume and frequency of maintenance required for your gutters and roof. On sloped roofs, the mesh slope and over-the-gutter design will ensure that most leaves and debris are blown off your roof and mesh by the wind.
However, no gutter protection system is completely maintenance free, so you will still need to occasionally check and clean your mesh and gutters to remove debris caught on the edge of your mesh or profiles, fine debris that may have collected in your gutters, or leaves and debris that cannot “self-clean” due to your roof slope or gutter type.
Gutter cleaning is a dangerous task so where possible, we recommend getting your gutters professionally cleaned. As gutter mesh significantly reduces your cleaning requirements, the cost will be significantly lower than before you installed a gutter protection system.
If you want to have your gutter mesh professionally installed, contact Blue Mountain Co and we’ll put you in touch with an installer in your local area.
Installation guides for all our gutter mesh products are available. If you choose to install gutter mesh yourself, be sure to take appropriate safety precautions and thoroughly read the installation guides before commencing installation.
