Product Description

EMC-3639 brings a rainscreen drainage plane to our WEEP System, as part of a technologically advanced design for creating division between the masonry and structural back-up walls. These 0.024″ (0.6 mm) thick high impact polystyrene sheets are formed with corrugations and a spunbond polypropylene fabric on one side with a 4″ (102 mm) skirt on one edge. Adhered fabric blocks mortar or stucco from filling the drainage channels and acts as a bug screen at terminations, with the majority of the high impact polystyrene ensuring durability, rigidity, and longevity.

Enhanced Moisture Management (EMC) | VENEER STONE MASONRY

Stucco, exterior insulation finish systems (EIFS), brick veneer, manufactured stone veneer, and cheap thin stone or faux stone siding often get bad reputations when it comes to installation defects in masonry construction because of improper moisture management. But even the best natural stone veneer, whether full or thin stone, is doomed to fail from water damage if moisture stays trapped in the wall.

Buechel Stone believes strongly that good masonry practices are not just what you see, it’s how it’s installed. With that thought, we were the first in the industry to widely promote a drainage plane, or WEEP System, for full and thin stone veneer masonry installations. What this does is gives you peace of mind knowing your project will stand up to what Mother Nature can throw at it. We offer a full range of installation accessories, along with custom drawings and detailing for more unique project applications.
