Truss & Ladder Reinforcement

#120 Truss-Mesh for Single Wythe Wall
Spec Sheet .pdf

#220 Ladder-Mesh for Single Wythe Wall
Spec Sheet .pdf

#230-235-240-245 Ladder-Mesh for Composite Wall
Spec Sheet  .pdf


Hohmann & Barnard's Lox All® Truss-Mesh and Lox All® Ladder-Mesh are continuous lengths of joint reinforcement that are embedded into the horizontal mortar joints of masonry walls. Joint reinforcement has long proven to be necessary for superior performance of masonry wall construction, as it offers the following benefits:

  • Reinforces a variety of masonry walls
  • Greatly reduces cracking that can arise from thermal stresses
  • Enhances resistance to water penetration, as cracks are controlled
  • Increases lateral flexural strength
  • Bonds exterior and interior masonry wythes together in composite or cavity walls
  • Bonds masonry at intersecting walls and corners
  • Increases elasticity
  • Increases performance of masonry walls under various stresses
  • Fabricated in conformance with ASCE/ACI 530 building code requirements for masonry structures, and ASTM A 951 (standard specification for masonry joint reinforcement).
  • Available mill galvanized, hot dip galvanized or stainless steel.
  • Reinforcing for can be STANDARD WEIGHT (9 ga x 9 ga), EXTRA HEAVY (3/16" Side Rods x 9 ga Cross Rods) or SUPER HEAVY DUTY (all 3/16").
  • Packed 500' per bundle (50 pcs. - 10' long)
  • Corners and Tees packed 25 pcs per bundle

Truss & Ladder Adjustable Reinforcement

#170 Truss Adjustable Eye-Wire
Spec Sheet .pdf


#270 Ladder Ladder Adjustable Eye-Wire
Spec Sheet  .pdf


Adjustable Joint Reinforcement with Eyes and Pintles. Benefits:

  • Tru-Joint Feature: Projecting eyes are flush-welded at 3 points to the backup ladder reinforcement to prevent excessive wire buildup. 3/8" joint thickness is easily maintained by the mason. Allows full 5/8" mortar coverage from face of block to the ladder side rod and provides deeper embedment of eye anchors than butt-welded systems. (See ACI-530-02 Bldg. Code Sec. 6.2.2.5.3/4/5.)
  • Allows construction of interior wythe in advance of exterior wythe.
  • Rectangular pintle acts as a vertically adjustable anchor to bond exterior masonry, while restraining in and out movement.
  • Design of pintle serves to mechanically secure insulation to masonry backup.
  • Fabricated in conformance with ASCE/ACI 530 building code requirements for masonry structures and ASTM A 951 (standard specification for masonry joint reinforcing).
  • Available hot dip galvanized or stainless steel.
  • Reinforcing for interior wythe can be STANDARD WEIGHT (9 ga x 9 ga), EXTRA HEAVY (3/16" Side Rods x 9 ga Cross Rods), or SUPER HEAVY DUTY (all 3/16"). Eyes and Pintles are 3/16" dia. standard.


Veneer Anchor Systems

X-Seal Veneer Anchor
Spec Sheet  .pdf


The X-SEAL Anchor meets or exceeds requirements of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts State Building Code for air leakage and water penetration. For test results, click on "Download Additional Information" to the right. The new X-SEAL™ Veneer Anchor is packed with more features than any other anchor on the market. Owners, architects and masons can be confident in the performance of an "X-SEALED" metal stud / veneer wall. The X-SEAL™ Anchor is the next generation veneer anchor from H&B. The original DW-10-X® Anchor was developed to address the problem of possible long-term deterioration of the insulation or wallboard. The pronged legs bridge the sheathing and abut the steel stud, affording independent, positive anchorage. Compression of the sheathing by positive loads is also prevented. The X-SEAL Anchor improves upon the DW-10-X by moving the horizontal pronged legs in from each end, enabling the backplate portion of the anchor to effectively seal the wallboard /insulation. This helps to maintain the integrity of the vapor barrier and prevents the ingress of air and moisture through the sheathing. The pronged legs are now also rib-stiffened and oriented closer to each other than on the original DW-10-X, thus enhancing the compressive strength BY OVER 20%!

X-Seal Tape
Spec Sheet .pdf

X-SEAL TAPE is adhesive-backed and is applied to the substrate behind the X-SEAL ANCHOR for additional protection against air and moisture infiltration. X-SEAL™ TAPE should be applied in continuous lengths. Surface must be dry and free of oils, dirt, dust, loose rust scales or any other materials which might cause poor adhesion. Continuous lengths are recommended to facilitate maximum adhesion. For correct application of X-SEAL™ Tape, start from the bottom of the wall, up. Roll on with an evenly distributed pressure applied via 3" roller. Storage and protection: As recommended by manufacturer, store X-SEAL™ Tape at a temperature between 60°F (15.5°C) and 80°F (26.6°C). If exposed to lower temperatures, restore product to 60°F (15.5°C) minimum temperature before application.

    Grout Screen / Mortar Net  

    Mortar Net
    Spec Sheet .pdf






    The Mortar Net is manufactured of high density polyethylene (HDPE) or nylon strands woven into a 90% open mesh. It will not react with common building products including PVC, polystyrenes, copper, rubberized-asphalt, lead, stainless steel or galvanized metal. It will not absorb or trap moisture, will not support mold or fungus, and is inedible to insects. It will not degrade as a result of temperature variations and is designed to last for the life of the building.
    • Catches and permanently suspends mortar droppings in masonry cavity walls above the level of the flashing and weeps so blockage of weep hole vents can't occur. Weep holes stay open.
    • Eliminates the need for any other system to deal with mortar droppings such as cotton wicks, pea gravel or batter boards.
    • Eliminates inexact design language such as, "weep holes shall remain open," so designer takes control and responsibility for the wall's performance.
    • Available 0.4", 1" or 2" thick.
    • Unique patented dovetail shape breaks up mortar droppings and prevents mortar damming so water always has open flow paths to the weep holes.
    • 90% open plastic mesh construction allows unobstructed passage of air & water through the material itself so walls breath, drain and dry quicker.
    • Specifically designed to work in conjunction with standard flashing/weep hole drainage systems in masonry cavity walls.
    • Simply stand in collar joint or cavity, requires no fasteners or adhesives, no special skills or tools, so installation by masons is fast and easy.
    • Lightweight for inexpensive and easy shipping, storage, handling and installation - even on high scaffolding.
    • Slightly compressible to allow for cavity variations in the field.
