Current Maximum Load/ Weight Capacity is as follows:
1-Gallon of Water Weighs 8.3 Ibs.
Product Testing Inc. performed an independent test of the SnapLock Gutter System® and found that the load capacity when using the SnapLock Gutter System® was 11.3 times or 1130% greater than that of 5″ gutters at full capacity and 7.6 times or 760% greater than that of 6″ gutters at full capacity. These tests prove that the SnapLock system will not only handle the weight of a gutter full of water, but it can also take on heavy gutter loads caused by ice and snow.
SnapLock Gutter System
The SnapLock Gutter System® eliminates failures due to water damage typically associated with conventional gutter installations. Snap Lock’s innovative “No-hole” technology uses no spikes or nails for attachment to your roofline. There is not need to penetrate the front or back of the gutter. The result is a watertight mating of the gutter at the edge of your roof – a seal that prevents seepage, rust, rot and mold. Further, because the integrity of your gutter channel is not riddled with holes, the SnapLock Gutter
System dramatically outlasts traditional rain gutters while protecting your home against the hazards associated with bacterial mold and fungus.
If it’s not SnapLock, It’s Not Permanent
Traditional rain gutters have changed little during the past 100 years. Today, their designs employ spikes, screws, or nails for attachment to your home, just as they did at the turn of the century when Teddy Roosevelt was President. And while this outmoded gutter technology offers satisfactory benefits in the short-term, results over many seasons remain the same: Structural failure because of rot, mold and gutter separation.
