Innovative Gutter Protection for All Climates

Gutters require year-round protection, no matter what the weather conditions. Many believe gutter guards are solely for preventing debris buildup, but Alu-Rex products offer much more. They reinforce your gutter system to handle over 250 pounds per foot and protect against UV rays that can deteriorate corner sealants over time. Crafted with durability in mind, Canadian-made Alu-Rex products come in various options to suit diverse environmental needs, ensuring optimal performance in any setting.

Continuous Hanger: Explained

Gutters used to be installed using nails or invisible hangers at 24-inch intervals. While these systems were relatively strong, they left long stretches of aluminum gutter, causing weak spots on the gutter between each 24-inch section. The Alu-Rex Continuous Hanger systems reinforce the gutter along their entire length.

The benefits:

  • Gutters flow freely for perfect drainage year-round.
  • There are no weak points; it can even hold the weight of three people.
  • Acts as a UV shade, protecting the sealant from direct sunlight and eliminating corner leaks.

Rain gutters are commonly installed with spaced hangers that cause weak spots on the gutter between each hanger.

To avoid weak spots, hundreds of hangers would need to be added, but this is not a very efficient practice.

Let’s Talk Gutters

Continuous hanger, what is it?

• Take a rain gutter with spaced hangers.

• Add hundreds of hangers

• Get the same kind of strength with the DoublePro or T-Rex continuous hanger™

Which Alu-Rex product should I choose if I have problems with pine needles?

The DoublePro Microfiltration Continuous Hanger™ keeps debris from getting inside the gutter. The offset holes make it the perfect filter, allowing water to drain freely while blocking pine needles and leaves without ever getting clogged.

What does the DoublePro Microfiltration Continuous Hanger™ 360° warranty covered?

Alu-Rex’s flagship product is covered by the most extensive warranty in the industry: a lifetime warranty on materials, durability, and clog-free performance. DoublePro is the only gutter guard whose clog-free warranty covers pine areas.

Details on warranty

Do wet leaves stick to Alu-Rex products?

Only temporarily. Alu-Rex products boast a smooth, perforated surface. Just as they may temporarily stick to the hood of your car, leaves and debris that land on the surface of Alu-Rex products dry quickly in the sun. And unlike your car hood, the surface of your eavestrough is perforated so they dry faster!

A little wind is all it takes to sweep away dry leaves and debris:

  • A 10 km/h wind effectively removes wet leaves and about 100 pine needles per linear foot.
  • A 37 km/h wind can remove about an inch (2.5 cm) of pine needles per linear foot

How do Alu-Rex products stand up to snow?

Alu-Rex products significantly reduce the weight of snow on your eavestroughs. Since snow can’t get into the gutters, the weight they must carry is limited to that which accumulates on top of Alu-Rex products. Furthermore, the eavestroughs remain fully functional so water from melting snow and ice can drain away freely.

Without Alu-Rex products, the gutters already clogged with leaves and debris fill up with snow and ice, which keeps them from doing their job and draining water away in spring. Additionally, they have to support more weight.

Do DoublePro, T-Rex or the Gutter Clean System increase ice formation?

Alu-Rex products prevent the formation of ice. If icicles form at the edge of the roof, we recommend that you check whether the attic is well ventilated and insulated properly.


Can the installation of Alu-Rex products create leaks in my roof?

No. Alu-Rex products do not cause any leaks. No shingles are raised and no nails or screws go into the roof during installation.

Beware of look-alike products that require you to lift the shingles. These products can lead to leaks. In time, the asphalt shingles dry out and become brittle. It’s never a good idea to lift shingles when installing eavestrough protections systems, whether they’re nailed in, screwed on, or simply set in place.

Also, the manufacturer’s warranty on asphalt shingles is void if the shingles are lifted, peeled away, or modified.

Can Alu-Rex products withstand heavy water flow?

Even if all the perforations get covered, which never happens because the wind sweeps away leaves and debris, Alu-Rex products can drain up to three times the quantity of water ever recorded in the heaviest rainstorm.

How? Because wet leaves remain permeable. Water still gets between the leaves allowing it to drain into the eavestrough. Water will always find its way into the holes.

Additionally, the exclusive design of Alu-Rex products features an approximately 0.4 in. (1 cm) deep basin. Testing in the lab and in the field has shown this to be the right depth to catch more water without stopping the wind from doing its job of sweeping away leaves, pine needles, and debris from the surface.

Beware of look-alike products that are completely flat. Water can overflow when products are not equipped with a basin.

What is the maximum weight my eavestrough can support when fastened with a continuous hanger™ system?

The maximum weight your gutter can support with a continuous hanger system, like the DoublePro or the T-Rex is at least 250 lb per linear foot (373 kg per linear meter). That’s 50% stronger than with spikes or hangers.

What is the point of using the DoublePro or the T-Rex if there are no trees near my home?

It may seem unnecessary to use the DoublePro or T-Rex continuous hanger system if there are no trees around your home. But the continuous hanger’s main strengths are its robustness, strength, durability, and quality.

With a continuous hanger, your eavestroughs will be stronger and more durable than any others. New trees may grow… and your eavestroughs will still be in perfect condition after 25, 30, and even 40 years! People who buy the DoublePro™ or T-Rex® system want what’s best for their gutters, just as they do for their doors, windows, and all other components of their home.

Why is the DoublePro or the T-Rex continuous hanger system better than spikes, screws, and hangers?

Spikes, screws, and hangers provide a certain degree of strength, but only over a few inches to either side of them. The spaces between the spikes/screws/hangers are weak.

With DoublePro or T-Rex, your eavestrough is equally solid across its entire length. There are no weak spots.

What’s the difference between Alu-Rex’s DoublePro, T-Rex or Gutter Clean System products?

The Gutter Clean System is an eavestrough protection system that prevents leaves and debris from getting in and clogging the existing eavestrough. This product is simply placed on your home’s existing eavestroughs.

T-Rex is a continuous fastening system for new gutters that securely fastens eavestroughs to your home, making them 50% stronger than traditional systems.

Like the T-Rex, the DoublePro is a continuous hanger system that reinforces the gutters. Its microfiltration dual-layer provides complete protection for even fine debris such as pine needles.

Do Alu-Rex products require maintenance?

The DoublePro, Gutter Clean System and T-Rex are among the most efficient eavestrough protection systems on the market today.

In the vast majority of cases, a light breeze is enough to sweep away normal debris. In areas under the roof or under shallow overhangs on sloped roofs, debris may build up where the wind cannot reach it.

We recommend that you occasionally clean out these areas to keep your Alu-Rex products in good working conditions.

Why doesn’t water go into my eavestroughs? There are simply not enough holes, or they are too small.

The exclusive Alu-Perf technology is the result of extensive research and development. The product has 489 holes every 19 inches (48 cm). This allows water to drain at the same rate as a 2 in. x 3 in. (5 cm x 7.5 cm) downspout.

Rigorous testing by an independent certification agency has proven that Alu-Rex products can drain over 32.9 in. (836 mm) of water an hour over a length of 20 feet (6 m). And with 200,000,000 feet (60,960,000 metres) of Alu-Rex products installed around the world, the figures speak for themselves…

Note: The highest amount of rainfall ever recorded worldwide was 12 in. (305 mm) of water in one hour (Holt, MO, 1947). In comparison, the 1996 Saguenay flood in Quebec was triggered by 11 in. (275 mm) of rain in three days. Alu-Rex products would have been able to handle all that rain in just one hour and three times more!

Overflow is usually caused by the eavestroughs themselves (not wide enough or deep enough for the roof surface) or the downspouts (insufficient number for the roof’s surface). It is important to make sure there are enough downspouts to avoid this problem. For this purpose, you need to keep in mind that one downspout is enough to drain the equivalent of a 600 sq. ft. (56 m²) roof.

In short, if you don’t have backflow problems with your current gutters in heavy rainfalls, the DoublePro, T-Rex and Gutter Clean System won’t create them.

Aren’t metal grills or plastic mesh enough for my home?

It’s tempting to believe that a simple plastic mesh that sells for $4 per 20-foot (6.1 meters) roll can do the job, but this just isn’t the case.

The openings in these products are much too large. Debris can get inside, leaves get stuck, which can clog the eavestroughs and turn into fertile soil for plants to grow in. These products are also not rigid, so they bend under snow and ice.

In short, these products will still force you to periodically climb a ladder to clear out your gutters
