T-Rex products significantly increase the strength and durability of your eavestroughs. The table below indicates the weight that must be applied on the rain gutter to obtain a distortion of one inch, based on the type of fastener.
|Distance between the continuous fastener screws or the spikes/hangers||Traditional installation with spaced spikes and hangers||T-Rex continuous fastening system|
|8 inches (203.2 mm)||170 lbs||250 lbs|
|16 inches (406.4 mm)||155 lbs||232 lbs|
|24 inches (609.6 mm)||140 lbs||214 lbs|
Even when most of the perforations are clogged, the T-Rex and Gutter Clean System can drain rainfall from most storms without overflowing.
|0%||29.7" (755 mm)|
|50%||21.1" (537 mm)|
|80%||12.6" (321 mm)|
When debris sits atop the T-Rex and Gutter Clean System, a slight gust of wind is enough to clear it. In addition, any wet leaves will quickly dry and be blown away by the wind.
|Debris (measured over 12" (305 mm))||Required wind speed|
|20 dried leaves||Negligible|
|200 fir needles||8 km/h|
|20 wet leaves||10 km/h|
|100 pine needles||10 km/h|
With 489 perforations every 19 inches (48 cm), the T-Rex and the Gutter Clean System can drain 29.7 inches (755 mm) of water per linear foot - three times more water than fell during the worst storm ever recorded.
