CHARNY, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Sept. 26, 2012) - Hoping to simplify one of fall's most risky chores, rain gutter accessory manufacturer Alu-Rex introduces Clip N Guard®, a revolutionary eavestrough protection system that puts an end once and for all to the regular cleaning of home gutters.
Consisting of a premium quality aluminum sheet featuring hundreds of perforations, the Clip N Guard® is the only rain gutter guard that can be adapted to all gutter sizes. Its unique shape ensures the effective functioning of roof drainage systems and makes it easier for dead leaves to be swept away by the wind.
"Climbing a ladder to clean the gutters is risky, as well as unpleasant," Alu-Rex General Manager Luc Masson explains. "Once the Clip N Guard® is installed, climbing up to clean them, and possibly injuring oneself, is no longer necessary. As such, you can literally ignore your gutters year round. Clip N Guard® does all the work for you!"
Fall is known as the season with the greatest potential for accidents in the home, due to the recurring tasks that need to be carried out around the house. According to statistics from the Canadian Institute for Health Information, there were some 8,366 reported injuries due to falls from ladders in Ontario alone in 2004-2005.
"Unlike its predecessor, no screws are required when installing the brand new Clip N Guard® gutter guard. It can be fastened to an existing structure without altering it. Installing it is therefore child's play for the average homeowner," Mr. Masson points out.
Recommended by CAA in the fall 2011 edition of Touring magazine, gutter guards are an essential safety asset for all homes. By eliminating clogging in gutters, they reduce the risk of basement water infiltration and limit mosquito breeding.
Alu-Rex has a number of achievements to its name and has been revolutionizing the gutter accessory market since 2001. In addition to the Clip N Guard®, the T-Rex® and T-Rex XL, also exclusive patented Alu-Rex products, reinforce gutters to such an extent that they can easily bear the weight of three adult men.
"The rain gutter industry has always been pretty conservative. Alu-Rex retains its lead by offering efficient, durable and easy to install products," Mr. Masson asserts.
The Gutter Clean System® range is also part of the Alu-Rex selection of accessories.
All Alu-Rex products are available throughout Canada through most rain gutter installers, as well as at every Walmart stores and Costco Warehouses in Canada, online at Costco.ca and at certain Home Depot stores in Ontario. Alu-Rex products are manufactured in Canada and distributed nationwide, as well as in the United States and Europe.
Founded by brothers Guy and Stéphane Brochu, Alu-Rex is recognized for its innovative and patented rain gutter accessories. The company has 25 employees and has sold more than 38 million metres of gutter guards worldwide within a period of just over ten years, an undisputed success in this industry.
