Current Maximum Load/
Weight Capacity is as follows:
1-Gallon of Water Weighs 8.3 Ibs.
- .6234 gal. per ft. = 5.21Ibs. per foot
of gutter 6" Gutters
- .92 gal. per ft. = 7.6 lbs. per running
ft. of gutter.
Product Testing Inc. performed an independent
test of the Truss DuraTrac Gutter System
and found that the load capacity when using
the Truss DuraTrac Gutter System was 11.3
times or 1130% greater than that of 5"
gutters at full capacity and 7.6 times or
760% greater than that of 6" gutters
at full capacity. These tests prove that
the Truss DuraTrac system will not only
handle the weight of a gutter full of water,
but it can also take on heavy gutter loads
caused by ice and snow.
Product Testing Inc. is certified with
