Mega Lath

Mega Lath is a self-furring welded wire that provides heavy-duty reinforcing for both stucco and stone installation. Mega Lath is an engineered product that provides easy attachment for both wood and steel construction. Specifically designed for stucco applications that require extra reinforcing, Mega Lath can be used as an alternative to 3.4 lb/yd2 diamond mesh metal lath specified in ASTM C 847 and at 1.95 lb/yd2, Mega Lath can be installed 24″ OC over open framing. Mega Lath is recommended wherever 2.5 or 3.4 metal sheet lath is specified.

 

New Innovative Product

  • Mega Lath is made with less metal but has more strength than any other product available – including sheet lath products
  • It is engineered to meet weight requirements for architectural stone product installations

 

Design Features

  • Dense product is made from 17 ga. galvanized steel wire welded to form 0.7 inch x 1.5 inch openings
  • Its design promotes uniform plaster thickness
  • A series of flat-bottomed V-shaped furrs ensure a full 3/8″ scratch coat
  • Furr will not puncture the vapour barrier
  • Additional cold-rolled longitudinal wires form a twin track that simplifies attachment, for greater productivity and job satisfaction
  • The cold-rolled technology produces flat wires that reduce curvature memory, for an easy-to-handle roll
  • Rolls are more manageable than sheet products and make for easy installation
