Trash Mortar Diverter Highlights

Trash Mortar DiverterTM maintains a cavity in brick veneer.   It’s V-shape catches trash mortar and provides a clear cavity in brick walls with cavities that range from 1.5” to 3”.  This means that the weep holes at the bottom of the cavity are kept open allowing moisture to drain freely.



  • Its V-shaped design stops, holds and encapsulates trash mortar while allowing moisture to funnel to the center and bottom of cavity where its drained by the weep system
  • It can be used in cavities of 1.5” to 3”.
  • It’s easy to install – lightweight, but not fluffy, 4’ pieces slide right in
  • Made from recycled material so it’s inexpensive and environmentally friendly
