Rain Centre offers two leaf protection systems, the Alu-Rex Fixa-Tech system, or a cleanout box system.

The Alu-Rex Fixa-Tech system is designed to provide the best gutter protection on the market. It is a continuous aluminum system that provides consitent strength across the entire length of the gutter, while providing protection against leaves, debris, and ice. The screen in the Alu-Rex system eliminates the need for annual leaf removal, reducing your ongoing maintenance costs.

Leaves which land on the Alu-Rex system are unable to enter the gutter itself and simply blow away with a slight gust of wind. Ice is held above the screen until it melts, draining through the gutter system once it thaws. Even with the screen to prevent debris from falling into the gutter the Alu-Rex system can drain over 700 mm of rain per hour. This is enough to handle even our heaviest rainfall, and we offers our full warranty on all Alu-Rex leaf protection systems. We can install Alu-Rex on existing gutter systems, or during a new gutter installation.

Cleanout Boxes

Our other leaf protection system is the cleanout box system. Cleanout boxes do not prevent leaves from being collected by your gutter and transported into the downspout. We install large funnels at the junction of the gutter with the downspout to allow easy passage of leaves and debris from the gutters to the downspouts. We then install a leaf box at the bottom of the downspout, approximately 3 feet off the ground. The box has a hinged cover that you can open to remove leaves and debris collected by the screen until you are ready to clean it. This ensures efficient functioning of your gutter system with less annual maintenance than gutter systems without leaf protection.
