Mortairvent Rainscreen From Advanced Building Products

Most wall systems today are built with absorptive claddings. Oftentimes manufactured stone, stucco, brick, wood and fiber cement siding are the claddings of choice. It is important to design these walls for moisture migration. Moisture will find a way into the wall. How will you minimize moisture’s negative impact within that wall system? Mortairvent® by Advanced Building Products is a drainage and ventilation mat that creates a capillary break, allowing moisture to drain, not remain trapped within the wall system.
