Alcohol, ketones, glycols, esters, and aqueous solutions of acids, salts, and bases have little effect on Earth Shield® Thermoplastic Vulcanizate Waterstop.
Designing Health Care Facilities for Optimal IEQ
October 10, 2022
Acoustics are crucial to Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ). When a surgeon is operating or a doctor is delivering important news to a patient, sound control is essential. And in certain areas of hospitals and urgent care centers, the Sound Transmission Class (STC) rating between rooms must be higher to produce quieter results.
MortarNet™ with Insect Barrier™ - the original mortar dropping collection device
September 30, 2022
In masonry cavity walls, mortar collection above the flashing and weep hole levels is vital for proper masonry cavity wall performance and to prevent water damage. In today’s walls, it’s common to see a 2” cavity reduced to the minimum requirement of 1” with the inclusion of insulation, so the need for better ventilation is essential to keep the wall dry and trouble-free. MortarNet™ with Insect Barrier™ suspends mortar droppings above the flashing and weeps, so they stay clear and unobstructed. The patented Insect Barrier helps deter insects from entering the cavity through the weep holes. Its NEW design using a structural strand polymer mesh allows moisture to flow to the weeps and significantly greater airflow within the cavity to promote drying.

Choosing Bulletproof Drywall And Ballistic Panels
July 8, 2022
No ballistic barrier is complete without ballistic panels (often referred to casually as “bulletproof drywall”). That’s because, although cinder block and brick will stop most common bullet calibers, standard construction drywall will not. In fact, a 9mm bullet will penetrate more than two dozen sheets of half-inch drywall and still be able to do harm. That bullet will likewise pop through several layers of plywood—and even through stacks of two-by-fours.

Ventilating the top and bottom of a cavity wall
October 27, 2021
Weep Vents are commonly placed directly on the flashing at the bottom of the wall, below finished floor and above finished grade. What may be new to some is that now, it is becoming more common to also place weep vents at the top of the wall, either just below the shelf angle (commercial or multi-story) or just below the facia and soffit of a residential structure.
