Increasingly, architectural specifications are calling for Structa Wire’s heavy duty reinforcing for metal plaster bases. Mega Lath was installed as a component in the exterior finish system at the Aztec Student Union building at San Diego State University. This LEED Platinum Certified Building is entirely funded by student-approved fees and serves as the campus living room, a hub for studying, socializing, connecting, relaxing, eating and learning.
The original specification on this steel-frame job was 3.4 lb metal lath but Standard Drywall Inc. successfully substituted Mega Lath for this job, which provides an enhanced wall system from the inside out. The product for this job is being supplied by Westside Building Materials in San Diego.
