MortarHalt™ Soft Cell Weep Vents
MortarHalt™ Soft Cell Weep Vents for masonry cavity walls ensure moisture drainage out and air circulation within the cavity wall while also restricting insects and other debris from entering the building cavity. Weep Vents should be installed in the masonry head joints above all flashing courses including the base of the wall, above all window and door lintels, and above shelf angles.

The open, yet slightly compressible material offers unmatched density allowing it to completely fill the weep opening.
