Attach the eavestrough to the home
Crochet Crochet Crochet

Spikes and spaced hangers support the front of the eavestrough, they are inserted into the fascia board. A spike or hanger is installed every 16 inches or so.

With these systems, the rain gutter is strong in the areas where spikes and hangers are present. 

Between them, the eavestrough is weak and easily damaged.

The T-Rex continuous hanger is inserted into the front of the eavestrough then screwed into the fascia board. Though it looks like a leaf guard, it actually attaches the eavestrough to your home.

With this system, the rain gutter is supported from end to end, with no weak points.

The eavestrough is much stronger and more durable.

Protect from damage caused by snow and ice
  Crochet Crochet

Spikes and standard hangers are spaced apart, which creates weak points in the eavestrough.

It cannot handle:

  • The weight of snow and ice.
  • Expansion in the rain gutter caused by ice as it thaws and refreezes.
  • The weight of ladders.

The T-Rex M-5200 has no weak points, and can withstand:

 

  • The weight of snow and ice.
  • The weight of ladders.
  • Since the ice remains outside of the rain gutter, expansion from thawing and refreezing will not warp it.

With its sturdy design and thick aluminum, the T-Rex XL M-5800 is even stronger and more durable than the T-Rex M-5200.

No weak points! It can even hold the weight of three people.

Eavestroughs can function year-round

An eavestrough that is clogged with snow and ice cannot work.

During rains or warmer weather, water will infiltrate the home since it cannot be drained by the eavestrough.

The T-Rex M-5200 prevents snow and ice from entering the eavestrough, so it can function at all times.

During rains or warmer weather, water is drained normally by the eavestrough.

Reduce the formation of unsightly black lines.

The T-Rex XL M-5800 uses Dura-Clean technology, an ultra-efficent integrated drip edge.

The drip edge causes dirty water to fall directly to the ground instead of on the eavestrough. It reduces the formation of unsightly black lines visible from the ground.

Matching colour when seen from inside the home.
