Gutter Brush Specifications
The Hedgehog Gutter Brush is manufactured using a stainless steel wire core and polypropylene bristles to create a long-lasting gutter brush that allows rainwater water to flow freely, whilst acting as a barrier for leaves and debris, stopping it from clogging up in the gutter channel.
Hedgehog gutter brush is fitted within minutes and will not require any special installation expertise, it adapts automatically to the shape of any gutter and can be easily cleaned if necessary. Leaves and twigs either bounce off the top of the brush or will naturally degrade, they are virtually indestructible and last for years.
The gutter brush bristles are coated with a unique UV resistant protective coating to safeguard and protect from extreme temperatures. This allows a solid 10-year manufacturer’s guarantee.
We only recommend the genuine Hedgehog Gutter Brush Guard System. Other systems are available on the market but with different bristle strength / core wire.
Our most popular size option, 100mm will fit most gutter profiles. Each brush is 4m in length

Questions & answers
Q: Do Hedgehog gutter brushes come in longer lengths than 4 metres?
A: No, but you can easily use 2 rolls end to end.
Q: Can you cut Hedgehog rolls to fit shorter lengths, e.g. 3.50m?
A: Yes. They are very easy to cut with wire cutters. The bristles are coming off a centre wire spiral that can be cut at any point to suit your requirements.
Q: Is Hedgehog strong enough to prevent birds from getting under your tiles via the gutters?
A: Yes, they are strong enough but bird ingress depends on the distance between your gutter and tile. It depends on the depth of the gutter and its placement below the edge of the tiles: if it is a shallow or ogee gutter up to 25/30mm below the tile edge then yes it is. But if it is a half-round gutter then it not going to get close enough to the underside of the tiles to be effective.
If you have too much of a gap you may cut little Hedgehog sections of approx. 15 cm and push them directly inside the ridge tiles: the air will travel but birds won’t be able to get in.
Q: Is it flexible enough to go around 90-degree corners or would it be better to cut it into two sections first?
A: Hedgehog gutter brush should be flexible enough to go around a corner but if your gutter is too small you can cut it through using wire cutters or pliers, and push the 2 ends together as close as possible.
