V Truss Walls and Ceilings
V Truss for Walls & Ceilings, also known as Structa Rib Lath, is designed to improve the performance of stucco on overhead surfaces. V Truss for Walls & Ceilings is a self-furring welded wire lath for use as an alternative to 3.4 lb rib metal lath.
Improved Stucco Performance
In the past, applying stucco overhead has meant contending with falling stucco, poor embedment and cracking. At Structa Wire, we have eliminated these frustrations with the design of a unique sheet product. V Truss for Walls & Ceilings, also known as Structa Rib Lath, features key elements that work together to provide easy installation, decreased fall-out and a smooth ‘crack-free’ soffit. The product was refined and improved through a series of field trials. It was so well received that a contractor claimed that this product would “revolutionize” the stucco industry.
Strong, Safe and Easy to Use
V Truss for Walls & Ceilings combines a series of 3/8-inch ‘ V ‘ shaped trusses, and heavy perforated draft paper that is sandwiched between the primary sheet and back layer of stiffening wires. The sheets are lightweight, yet strong and easy to cut. Attachment points are identified on the printed kraft paper for ease of installation.
