First Gutter Guard in History Obtains UL Certification

 

ROSEVILLE, California: Gutterglove, Inc., a gutter guard manufacturer, announces that their gutter guards have received certification through Underwriters Laboratories (UL) for NSF P151 and NSF 372. They will be the first gutter guards in history to get this approval and will allow their gutter protection systems to be used in rainwater harvesting systems where rainwater can be used for human consumption by drinking.

 

With concerns of droughts in various states and with the growing demand of sustainable eco-friendly green products, gutter guard inventor and CEO of Gutterglove, Robert Lenney, is glad to provide approved National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) protocols for his gutter covers to the public.

 

“It’s pretty exciting to be the first ever gutter guard to obtain this type of recognition”, says Lenney. “Homeowners that have rainwater catchment systems will appreciate having a gutter guard that has been taken through the rigorous test by UL for the NSF P151 and NSF 372 certifications.”

 

People associate the globally recognized UL label with electronic devices, but they also provide testing and certification to NSF standards and protocols. NSF P151covers the health effects from rainwater catchment system components and NSF 372 covers lead content analysis.

 

The gutter guards manufactured by Gutterglove are made primarily of stainless steel micro-mesh and will keep out leaves, pine needles and tiny roof sand grit from your gutter. The two primary benefits of the gutter covers is that you will never have to clean your gutters again and they can be used on a potable rainwater harvesting system.

 

Gutterglove’s contractor grade DIY gutter guards are distributed through Costco, Home Depot, Sam’s Club and numerous roofing and gutter supplies stores throughout the US. More information can be found at www.Gutterglove.com.

NSF Protocol P151

Health Effects From Rainwater Catchment System Components has the following scope.

Scope: This testing covers gutters, barrier materials and/or catchment surfaces (coatings, paints, lining and liners) placed on roof tops and ground surfaces that come in contact with rainwater that is collected and used as drinking water.

 

NSF 372

ANSI/NSF 372 contains the lead content evaluation procedure originally detailed in ANSI/NSF 61 Annex G, as well as testing requirements and methodologies for material lead content analysis. The scope of the standard applies “to any drinking water system component that conveys or dispenses water for human consumption through drinking or cooking”.
