Concealed flashings should extended through the wall, stepping up at least one brick course to promote drainage and terminate with a minimum 2" turn up at the interface. Where a turn up is impractical the flashing should terminate with a 1/4" hook dam approximately 1" back from the inside face of the wall.
Lintel and still flashings should extend at least 4" beyond the jambs of openings or have end dams forming a pan. Flashings at spandrel beams should be continuous. At vertical limitations the flashing should be turned up a minimum of 2" and sealed.
All flashing should be set with a thin bed of mortar below and above with care being taken to ensure that the mortar completely fills the bonding ribs.
A performed two piece cap flashing used for counter flashing where flat roofs abut rising walls. The receiver portion is built in during construction leaving only the locking slot exposed. After installation of the roof, the insert member is snapped in place providing a spring like hug against the base flashing. When repair or replacement of the roof is required the insert may be removed and reused.
Four receiver types are available to suit most flashing requirements. All have a continuous locking slot and self aligning tongue to assure proper joint alignment. Thru-wall receivers have 3/16" high undercut sawtooth ribs at 3" intervals for bonding in the mortar bed. The 1" in the wall receiver is for use in existing masonry. Surface mounted receivers are supplied with or without sealant flange. The 4" in the wall flat receiver is for use in areas where mortar bonding is not required.
