AS3959–2009 states that gutter guards are optional for anyone building a new home in an area with a BAL of 12.5, 19, 29, 40 or FZ. However, if you install gutter or valley leaf guards on your home, the standard is clear: “if installed, gutter guards shall be non-combustible”.
Leaf Shield Gutter Guard is the ultimate fire protection from bush fire ember attack.
Houses and buildings located in and around bushland areas are at serious risk from bush fires. Home owners are well aware of the maintenance required to keep gutters clear of debris during peak fire season.
Do I need to maintain Leaf Shield?
No!!! That’s the best part – the Leafshield system is self cleaning in most situations.
It’s rugged polyethylene construction means that it will not rust or cause electrolysis (oxidisation) and is therefore maintenance free.

Leaf Shield gutter guards will provide protection for buildings from the threat of bush fire embers starting a fire in your roof gutters.
