Poly vs Aluminium Options

When it comes to guttering protection in Adelaide, Leaf Shield have got you covered. No matter what the situation, we are able to custom design a guttering protection system specific to you needs, utilising both our polymesh and aluminium mesh products.

Although both product ranges are different, the similarities between the diamond/ expanded mesh in aluminium and poly include:

– 15 year product warranty (from a reputable supplier like Tapex)

– 2mm x 4mm hole

– great range of colours to suit most homes

– same installation technique

– will accommodate inspection points

While the main points are similar, there is one major difference between the two (2) meshes. Polymesh is more durable and able to handle impact, while the aluminium mesh is fire rated and is suitable (and legal) to use in bush fire zone rated installations. If you live in a bush fire zone, you MUST use the aluminium mesh such as used in our Ember Guard product.

To learn more about the difference between our range of products, please read this article put together by our Sales Consultant Anthony.


If your Adelaide home is located in bush fire prone areas, then the Ember Guard gutter protection’s unique design, is exactly what you need to have installed at your property. The Ember Guard gutter protection unique design can also be used under ridge capping, providing one 3D edge to fit perfectly onto corrugated roofing and tightly under the ridge capping on the other edge, giving lasting fire protection, plus allowing the correct ventilation into the roof cavity.
