Rib lath is expanded metal lath stiffened with longitudinal ribs. The
furring design of the mesh provides efficient background plaster
for construction of partition, suspended ceilings and refurbishment
works. The advantage of ribbed-lath over metal-lathing is that
support centers can be increased or widened.

Rib lath is ideal for refurbishing damaged or aged masonry walls,
when a key for rendering is not certain due to disintegration or
softening of the wall face.
Lath should be fixed with apexes of ribs against the wall, edge
ribs of sheets nesting into each other should be wire tied every 15cm and ends of sheets should be lapped not less than
2.5cm and nesting ribs securely tied together.
Stainless steel fixings should be used at sufficient intervals to
hold the lath firmly in position.
