ROSEVILLE, CA — Gutterglove, Inc. announced that their manufactured gutter guards are the first in history to receive certification through Underwriters Laboratories (UL) for NSF P151 and NSF 372. With over 100 gutter guards manufactured today, this approval will allow their gutter covers to be the first to be used in potable rainwater harvesting systems.

With a growing need for water conservation practices and sustainable green products and initiatives, gutter guard inventor and CEO of Gutterglove, Robert Lenney, is glad to provide approved National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) protocols for his gutter guards.

“Our stainless steel gutter guards act as a pre-filtration for rainwater catchment because they keep leaves, pine needles and small debris out of the gutter and rainwater collection tanks,” says Lenney. “Another great feature is that homeowners will never have to clean their gutters out again.”

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.

President of the American Rainwater Catchment Systems Association (ARCSA), David Crawford, describes that the rainwater catchment industry and product suppliers have grown in the last few years.

“We are proud to support our members that are making great strides to move the industry forward as Gutterglove has with their precedent setting UL approval for NSF protocols related to gutters used for rainwater harvesting,” replies Crawford.

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 are that you will never have to clean your gutters again and they can be used on a potable rainwater harvesting system where rainwater’s end use is for human consumption such as drinking and cooking.

Gutterglove recently moved from a 22,000-square-foot facility in Rocklin to a 43,000-square-foot facility in Roseville, with a growth rate of over 100 percent from 2015-2016 over 2014. With the significant growth of the Gutterglove company, due to expansion into Costco, Home Depot and over a hundred roofing and gutter supply stores, the additional space was very much welcomed.
