Effective prevention of moisture and radon ingress into larger buildings can be achieved more quickly and with less wastage using Z-Led
’s MCR Preformed Multi-Crease System.
Comprising pre-formed straight runs and moulded or welded accessories, the system reduces the time and material wastage spent creating repetitive and/or complex cavity detailing. Self-supporting, Z-Led
Preformed Multi-Crease System can accommodate cavities from 50-100mm, and be used over lintels without the need to incorporate it into the inner leaf.
Each polypropylene section features numbered creases which are folded to form a continuous cavity tray or barrier. The Preformed Multi-Crease System is easily cut to the required length, and mortared into position, either brick to brick or brick to block. Internal and external corners and handed stop-ends for walls, beams and columns complete the range to ensure a reliable solution to risk of damp.
A non-slip textured finish provides improved mortar adhesion; in radon applications, a 40mm wide adhesion flange provides a positive fixing point for membranes. Z-Led
offers an option for the system to be factory-fitted with either code 4 lead or its environmentally-friendly flashing alternative, Aluflash
, where abutting the outer leaf.
