Products Details

3/8” High-Rib Lath Sheet are used for horizontal applications. Its seven longitudinal ribs (each 3/8 inch deep) and eight small flat ribs provide additional rigidity. Herringbone grid patterns provide ceiling and soffit installations The excellent adhesion of plaster and slats is achieved. The 1/8-inch flat ribs on the outer edges of the boards allow for smooth overlap and reduce plaster cracks at the overlap.

Hot-dip galvanized surface provides corrosion resistance

10 feet long x 3/8 inches thick

Herringbone mesh pattern

3/8-inch self-flanging V-groove rib for positioning away from the application surface

8 small flat ribs provide rigidity

The 1/8-inch flat ribs on the outer edge of the board form a smooth overlap, which helps reduce plaster cracks at the overlap

Rib Lath Sheet Installation

Fixing of Riblath Sheets

Riblath is fixed so that the tip of the rib is placed against the supporting background. The rib of the sheet should run at right angles to any supports. Ensure that sheets are overlapped by a minimum of 50mm end to end and by 25mm widthways and that the ribs are nestled together.

Timber Support

Riblath is fixed at each rib to timber supports using plasterers' nails or staples. Ensure that compatible corrosion resistant fixings are used, ie. do not use galvanised fixings for stainless steel.

Metal Support

Riblath is fixed at each rib to metal support using 1.63mm galvanised or stainless steel tying wire. When joining riblath sheets overlap the edge ribs and tie the edges with 1.22mm tying wire at 150mm centres.

Solid Background

Riblath can be fixed to a solid background using a suitable fixing which holds the ribs firmly against the background. Where sheets are installed vertically, fixings should be positioned through all ribs at 600mm centres to ensure adequate stability.
