DriPlane helps masons and designers build drier, more trouble-free walls by providing continuous drainage and drying behind most types of adhered masonry and rainscreen walls.

The Masonry Advisory Council recommends that in exterior adhered masonry wall systems, a drainage mat be installed to drain any water that has penetrated to the flashing. A galvanized expanded metal lath, or diamond mesh, should be attached atop the drainage mat.

Features

  • Polypropylene mesh bonded to a water and vapor-permeable fabric
  • Convenient 48” x 65’ rolls for rapid coverage and fewer seams (0.25″ material)
  • Available in ¼”, ⅜” (10mm) and ¾” thickness
  • Unique UV-resistant packaging protects DriPlane rolls from degradation
  • Extra-large product labels are easy to read from a distance

Benefits

  • 90% open-weave and vapor permeable fabric allows rapid drainage and drying
  • Molded-in channels provide clear, continuous drainage and ventilation pathways
  • Helps prevents peeling, cracking or blistering of exterior finishes by allowing them to dry quickly and completely from the back
  • Easy to install using familiar tools
  • Will not absorb moisture
  • 100% inert material provides no food source for mold, mildew or bacteria
  • Allows complete encapsulation of metal lath in adhered masonry applications
  • Acts as a mortar break between adhered masonry base coat and weather resistant barrier (WRB)
  • Allows siding and veneers to move independently of the structural wall to help prevent damage due to variations in expansion/contraction rates of wall components
  • Allows rapid pressure equalization to prevent air pressure-driven water infiltration
