Beware of "XL" rain gutter filter products!
There are companies out there at this very moment offering you, the consumer, through big box retailers and online outlets, these "XL" products, in an effort to compete with roof line gap protection of Safe-T-Flow®. Some of these same companies right now are in the process of trying to patent products with front and rear drainage channels, and also fire resistance attributes, some even being successful.
American Gutter Filter has been and still is waiting to receive our various claims from the patent office since 2004, that include but not limited to, front and rear drainage channels and fire resistance attributes. American Gutter Filter has used these "new and useful improvements" since 2004.
What does this mean to you?
It's the opinion of American Gutter Filter, that the "XL" products available now are simply a quick fix to compete with a superior product in Safe-T-Flow®, while they wait on the patent office, not wanting to risk potential infringement on American Gutter Filter patents, with the attributes of Safe-T-Flow®.
American Gutter Filter Inc. is the only company selling Safe-T-Flow® that has front and rear drainage channels with "new and useful improvements". Go to the Safe-T-Flow® product page to see the advantages of front and rear drainage channels.

Testimonial from the State of California Department of Parks and Recreation
Dear American Gutter Filter,
I just wanted to write to thank you for providing me with your great product. I work at Hearst State Monument in California and was recently tasked with cleaning out and rescreening the rain gutters on several historic buildings. After some research I found a gutter filter product that looked like it would work well. I installed the material on one building to see how it worked.
Shortly after installing the product I came across an ad for your product in Gutter Opportunities magazine. Although the two products looked very similar, your ad stated that your product also had the added benefit of being fire resistant to a high standard. After testing the original filter, I found that it would ignite if it came in contact with flame. Since we are in a high fire area I decided against using the product and removed it.
After receiving a sample of your product and testing it, I found that it was manufactured to meet the highest standard of safety for flame retardants in foam. Naturally I was sold. The product performs great and I have now installed it on four historic buildings at the monument. And I can sleep well knowing that it is a safe product and that I don't have to worry about cleaning out the gutters again for the rest of my career.
