COLORBOND® Steel Gutters
A strong guttering system is essential for protecting your home from the elements. At Easy Fall Guttering, we recognise the need for gutters to not only work during the rainy season but also protect you from bushfires. That’s why we’ve created a guttering system made from Colorbond steel.

What type of gutters are made for Australian weather conditions?
Australian climate exposes our homes to extreme weather conditions. In a year, it is normal for our home exteriors to be subjected to extreme heat or cold, as well as heavy rainfall, strong gusts of wind, hail, and even bushfires.
Our friends at BlueScope Steel have tested COLORBOND® Steel, specifically to withstand Australian weather conditions. COLORBOND® Steel, is assessed at outdoor sites all around Australia that replicate building applications. These include corrosion testing, durability testing, and exposure testing.
What is bushfire protection?
In bushfire-prone areas, it is important that home exteriors are made with non-combustible materials. COLORBOND® Steel, complies with Australian Standard 3959-2009 that specifies the building requirements in bushfire-prone areas.
These bushfire zones include the most extreme BAL-FZ (Bushfire Attack Level – Flame Zone), where “there is an extremely high risk of ember attack and burning debris ignited by windborne embers, and a likelihood of exposure to an extreme level of radiant heat and direct exposure to flames from the fire front.” (AS3959-2009). Colorbond performed best against other building materials in this extremely aggressive environment.
How can I maintain my COLORBOND® Steel gutters?
Our COLORBOND® Steel, guttering system is guaranteed easy to maintain and hassle-free. Regular washing with fresh water will prolong its life. We recommend hosing down both the exterior and interior of the system at least twice a year. Always ensure that there is no build-up of dirt and debris.
For maintenance sessions that do not fully remove all the dirt, BlueScope Steel recommends washing the surface with a mild solution of pure soap or mild non-abrasive kitchen detergent in warm water. You should use a sponge or soft cloth and gently rub the surface of the COLORBOND® Steel. Do not use solvent or abrasive cleaners such as kerosene or paint thinners.
