Our team has carried out numerous tests to ensure that our product meets high quality and performance standards. The results are convincing.
This test consisted of attaching three DURAMAX-175 brackets onto a standard-thickness (0.027”) aluminum gutter. An Olympic bar was then placed into the gutter to reach the maximum possible weight, with 525 pounds distributed over the three DURAMAX-175 brackets.
With the bar installed, the results were impressive: 525 pounds supported by just three brackets. Per bracket, the capacity proved to be 175 pounds.
The design of the DURAMAX-175 embodies sturdiness and clearly demonstrates that it meets the requirements of anyone looking to install a high-quality system on their home.
This second important test was carried out using different brackets to install a gutter, including the DURAMAX-175. The gutter was then filled with water.
On the left, we see the signs of water left by a major competitor’s brackets. On the right, the DURAMAX-175 brackets: no trace of water.
The neoprene membrane and the collar on the DURAMAX-175’s #12 screw ensure a remarkable seal. No drop of water penetrated behind the binding, despite the fact that they were submerged.
In contrast, this test revealed a major waterproofing flaw in a popular competitor’s bracket. This type of water infiltration eventually results in rot on home’s façade.
