& Weep Systems
Managing moisture within the cavity of a masonry wall is one of the most important factors in maintaining the integrity of a masonry wall, and for preventing water damage. Because masonry projects vary in size and scope, we offer a variety of moisture control and weep systems to effectively drain the masonry wall.
WallDefender™ is a mortar dropping collection device that breaks up and suspends mortar droppings on two levels above the flashing so weeps stay open, water can exit the cavity and walls can dry quickly and completely. Available in 1" and 2" thicknesses.
Weep holes must be used with WallDefender™ to allow effective moisture drainage and wall drying.
WEEP VENT OPTIONS:
Plastic Tube Only
With Brass Screen
With Brass Screen & Wick
The Trash Mortar Diverter™ creates a trash mortar collector and acts as a moisture and air flow control system. It stops and collects trash mortar and holds it away from the face brick and the back-up walls. The V-Shape funnels moisture toward the center of the cavity, away from the back side of the face brick and the face of the back-up wall, then downward through three rows of holes to a weep system.
For CMU. The Core/Cavity Vent™ Weep System creates many openings at the lowest point of the core and cavity of the wall, continuously along the wall.
