Advanced Building Products has responded to the to the increased use of manufactured stone and masonry veneers with the introduction of Mortairvent. Mortairvent is a two-ply mortar deflection and ventilation system that has been specifically designed for use with manufactured stone, stucco, EIFS and brick. By installing the Mortairvent two-ply system, a ventilation cavity is created between the vapor barrier and exterior wall. The blue polymer core mesh creates the airspace, while the filter fabric blocks mortar droppings from seeping into this newly formed cavity, still allowing moisture to pass through. The combination of drainage and ventilation greatly reduces the threat of toxic mold.
