1" x 10" Mortar Net
The Mortar Net is manufactured of high density polyethylene (HDPE) or nylon strands woven into a 90% open mesh. It will not react with common building products including PVC, polystyrenes, copper, rubberized-asphalt, lead, stainless steel or galvanized metal. It will not absorb or trap moisture, will not support mold or fungus, and is inedible to insects. It will not degrade as a result of temperature variations and is designed to last for the life of the building.
Catches and permanently suspends mortar droppings in masonry cavity walls above the level of the flashing and weeps so blockage of weep hole vents can't occur. Weep holes stay open.
Eliminates the need for any other system to deal with mortar droppings such as cotton wicks, pea gravel or batter boards
Eliminates inexact design language such as, "weep holes shall remain open," so designer takes control and responsibility for the wall's performance
Unique patented dovetail shape breaks up mortar droppings and prevents mortar damming so water always has open flow paths to the weep holes
90% open plastic mesh construction allows unobstructed passage of air & water through the material itself so walls can breath, drain and dry quicker
Specifically designed to work in conjunction with standard flashing/weep hole drainage systems in masonry cavity walls
Simply stand in collar joint or cavity, requires no fasteners or adhesives, no special skills or tools, so installation by masons is fast and easy
Lightweight for inexpensive and easy shipping, storage, handling and installation - even on high scaffolding
Slightly compressible to allow for cavity variations in the field
