StructaLath

Structalath No. 17 1- 1/2″ x 1-1/2″ SF CR II is a welded wire lath, engineered to enhance the performance of stucco cladding. Structalath reduces cracking and increases stucco embedment while being easy to install, enhancing worker satisfaction and productivity. Structalath 316 is a version of our regular Structalath with a reduced furr depth of 3/16″ for use in One Coat systems.

 

Structural Performance

  • Structalath provides excellent reinforcing value and crack resistance
  • It mobilizes all wires to provide a reinforcing truss
  • Welded joints provide structural integrity and superior stiffness
  • Square openings at 1 1/2″ provide crack-bridging capability
  • Furring pattern allows excellent keying in the stucco

 

Patented Cold-Rolled Technology

  • Cold-rolled technology delivers flattened longitudinal wires, unique to Structalath products, for greater strength
  • Flat longitudinal wires mean that the roll of wires do not ‘spring back’ when unrolled, for ease of installation and enhanced worker safety
  • The cold rolled process increases tensile and breaking load of the wire
  • The wires in our product are aligned with the stress direction, resulting in the full tensile strength of the wires

 

Excellent Furring

  • Furr depth of 1/4″ provides for ideal stucco embedment
  • Each cross wire is securely furred
  • Flat-furr design ensures there will be no damage to the vapour barrier
  • Tensioning of wire during installation will not flatten out the furr

 

Worker-Friendly

  • Structalath rolls are easy to handle, reducing lathers’ fatigue and increasing productivity
  • Structalath is designed with safety in mind: Structalath will not spring back on the applicator, reducing the number of cuts for workers
  • The easy-to-handle nature of the product means greater worker satisfaction and productivity
  • Structalath is designed for ease of application to cover 9′ 3″ wall heights (common in residential construction)
  • Structalath minimizes build-up and thickness at horizontal laps. Please download lapping detail drawing for recommended installation.
