Mortar Trap™ is manufactured from high-density polyethylene (HDPE) strands woven into a 90% open mesh. Its unique shape breaks up mortar droppings and prohibits mortar from creating a moisture retaining barrier, allowing water to flow freely to the weep holes.
90% open mesh construction allows unobstructed passage of air & water through the material itself so walls breathe, drain & dry quicker.
Will not react with common building products (PVC, polystyrene, copper, rubberized-asphalt, lead, stainless steel or galvanized metal).
Will not: absorb or trap moisture, support mold or fungus, and is inedible to insects.
Will not degrade as a result of temperature variations and is designed to last for the life of the building.
Keeps weep holes open - catches and permanently suspends mortar droppings so blockage can't occur.
Fast, easy installation by masons - does not require fasteners or adhesives, no special skills or tools.
Slightly compressible to allow for cavity variations in the field.
