Cavity Wall Drainage - TotalFlash®

The patented TotalFlash® Cavity Wall Drainage Solution is much more than just flashing. It is a complete, factory-assembled masonry cavity wall flashing system. TotalFlash® combines a flashing membrane with a mortar dropping collection drainage mesh, drainage mesh weep tabs, drip edge and termination bar into a single, easy-to-install panel.

It provides superior moisture protection, slashes labor costs by as much as 50%, and can be custom configured for your job, usually at no additional charge. Factory assembly means consistently higher quality than field assembled pieces and parts.

CompleteFlash™ one-piece 14" High Corner Boots and end dams, preformed metal drip edge corners, and compatible sealants are available to complete the TotalFlash® system.

Cavity Wall Drainage - CompleteFlash™

CompleteFlash™ is a system of one-piece, preformed, injection-molded 14" high corner boots and end dams for use with all types of flashing in masonry cavity walls. They speed installation and create consistently formed corners and dams every time to reduce the chances of leaks.

14" High Corner Boots are superior to 8" corner boots because they extend above the standard flashing height and eliminate the need for field fabrication.

Boots and dams are available in thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO), a synthetic rubber/polypropylene blend (SR) that is EPDM compatible, and thermoplastic vinyl (PVC) stabilized with Elvaloy® KEE, a non-migratory plasticizer and UV-stabilizer.

14" High Corner Boots are only available from Mortar Net Solutions.

Sealants image

Sealants - MPE-1 & BTL-1

MPE-1 and BTL-1 are high performance sealants for use in most masonry construction applications.

MPE-1 is a paintable, gray, modified polyether. It is permanently elastic, freeze-thaw stable, and is the lowest VOC high-performance sealant available. (LEED® compliant). MPE-1 is not for use with TPO.

BTL-1 is a black butyl sealant that is permanently elastic and tacky, and freeze-thaw stable. BTL-1 is ideal for use with TPO. Both sealants are single component, moisture cured, and come in 10.3 oz. tubes.

Weep Vent image

Weep Vent - WeepVent™

WeepVent™ for masonry cavity walls is installed between the head joints at the base of the wall and wherever flashing is installed. It helps ensure that moisture can migrate out and air can circulate into the cavity, and that insects can't enter the cavity through the weep holes.

WeepVent™ is made from 90% open polyester mesh with up to 50% recycled content, is UV stable, and is available in six colors to complement most wall designs.

Its compressibility means it can completely fill the weep holes and adapt to different head joint sizes, and "prickly adhesion" holds it in place without fasteners or adhesives.

CellVent™ is made from polypropylene, including 33% preconsumer recycled content, is UV stable and is available in seven colors, including clear.

Embeddable Flashing image

Embeddable Flashing - BlockFlash®

BlockFlash® is the perfect flashing system for exterior single wythe C.M.U. walls designed without a visible drip edge. It cuts labor and material costs associated with using membrane flashing in a multi-wythe course by approximately 50%.

BlockFlash® uses patented flashing pans to collect moisture in the wall and channel it to the exterior through integrated weep spouts. Its included 90% open drainage mesh provides hundreds of clear pathways for water to flow around mortar droppings inside the block cells so it can be collected by the pans. Factory-installed insect guards in the weep spouts keep insects out of the block cells.

Used wherever flashing is necessary, including at the base of the wall, in parapet walls and over wall openings and bond beams. Available for 8", 10", and 12" standard or insulated concrete masonry units.

(Formerly known as "Blok-Flash".)

Moisture Drainage - BlockNet®

BlockNet® is the perfect flashing system for exterior single wythe C.M.U. walls designed with a visible stainless steel drip edge. Stainless steel drainage sections collect moisture and channel it to the exterior of the building through the integrated drainage mesh weep tabs. 7" x 7" vertical mesh elements install in the C.M.U. block cells above the drainage sections to allow moisture to flow around mortar droppings to the weep tabs.

Used wherever flashing is necessary, including at the base of the wall, in parapet walls and over wall openings and bond beams. It may be used in reinforced or unreinforced 8", 10", and 12" walls, and in unreinforced 6" walls. It may be used in new construction and is also ideal for restoration or rehab projects.

It allows moisture to easily flow to the weeps, promotes drying to help prevent moisture damage, and can help extend the life of rainscreen siding materials by helping them dry from the back.
