The all-in-one solution to weep hole design and construction in cavity walls!
EcoWeep™ is a patented weep hole with a unique louvered design which prevents driving rain and any intrusions from creatures such as rodents, snakes etc.
Weep openings are drainage holes left in the face of a brick wall in order to allow water that has penetrated the outer wall to escape downwards through the wall cavity and out to the exterior of the wall surface through the weep openings.
These are more commonly referred to as “weep holes” in the industry. They are used in the construction of cavity walls.

Builders, plasterers and painters all endorse EcoWeep™ as a user-friendly product with architects praising the use of the weep hole system due to its uniformity in the end result of the walling projects.
This is particularly evident in high rise buildings where driving rain onto the lee face of a wall prevents water penetration into the cavity and hence the cavity system is not compromised.
