Gutterglove Gutterguard, the Rocklin-based rain gutter development, installation and repair business, said it has received two U.S. patents for its gutter guard systems.
One is for Ice Melting Heated Panels, a heated gutter guard that melts icicles, snow loads and ice dams. The company says it also filters out leaves, pine needles and other debris. Heat is distributed via a self-regulating cable.
“Since ice can’t form on your gutters when Ice Melting Heated Panels is installed, the liabilities of falling icicles are virtually eliminated,” said Robert Lenney, inventor of Ice Melting Heated Panels.
The second patent was issued for the latest development of the Gutterglove Pro gutter cover. Lenney first introduced the system of stainless-steel mesh over aluminum channels in 2003.
