Macro-Mesh Rib Lath is expanded metal lath stiffened by longitudinal steel ribs, formed in the same sheet of metal.
The mesh areas of the lath are expanded by cutting and stretching in the sheet of metal, the ribs being simultaneously roll-formed.
The furring design of the mesh provides an excellent background plaster for construction of partitions, suspended ceilings and refurbishment works. The advantage of rib lath over metal lath is that the support centres can be increased or widened.
Rib Lath is extensively used:
- As a plaster background for ceilings, walls, partitions and steelwork encasement.
- To refurbish damaged or aged masonry walls.
