Blok-Flash®

TODAY'S MOST EFFECTIVE DRAINAGE SYSTEMS FOR MASONRY CONSTRUCTION Created by masonry experts, the patented Mortar Net® systems surpass all other methods of ensuring that cavity or single-wythe CMU walls breathe, drain, and dry quickly and efficiently. MORTAR NET® For traditional brick masonry cavity-wall construction. Made of tough polyester mesh, its patented "dovetail" shape captures mortar droppings on two levels so they can't form a solid dam across the cavity. In addition, its 90% open-weave mesh lets water flow, unobstructed, to weep holes and lets air circulate freely within the cavity. BLOCKNET® WORLD OF CONCRETE'S 2004 "MOST INNOVATIVE MASONRY PRODUCT.” The BlockNet® system is used in single-wythe block walls. Its stainless steel flashing, and open-mesh horizontal and vertical elements form a continuous drainage system along the building's entire perimeter, directing moisture to the integrated weep-tabs and out of the building. BLOK-FLASH® An embeddable high-density polyethylene flashing system, heavily specified for block construction. Collects water from vertical cores and diverts it to the exterior through concaved weep-spouts. Eliminates the need for multiple sizes of architectural CMU. Offers significant savings versus membrane flashing.
