Welded Wire Lath

Metech Welded Mesh Inc. offers high-quality Welded wire Lath (Structa Wire) and Stucco Netting in various types and customizable sizes, complete with all specifications needed for diverse applications.

Welded Wire Lath, also known as Stucco Wire or Structa Wire, is crafted from galvanized or stainless steel. Designed for robust stucco applications, it ensures structural integrity by holding the stucco in place as it cures, making it ideal for both residential and commercial constructions that require rigid support.

On the other hand, Stucco Netting provides a lighter, more flexible alternative, made from either galvanized metal or plastic. Its wide mesh netting is easier to shape and install, perfect for residential projects or surfaces requiring less structural reinforcement.

Both are crucial for reinforcing stucco layers on buildings, preventing cracking, and adding strength. They’re installed over a water-resistant barrier and structural framing, followed by stucco layers to achieve the desired thickness and texture. The choice between wire and netting hinges on the construction’s specific needs, including flexibility, structural support, and desired finish.
Welded Wire Lath

Welded Wire Lath is a key material used in the construction industry for stucco reinforcement and plaster applications. It is made from welded wire mesh, typically made of galvanized steel or stainless steel, which provides a strong and durable base for plaster or stucco.

Material Composition: Galvanized Steel Most commonly used due to its corrosion resistance and strength, ideal for exterior applications.
Wire Gauge: The wire gauge (thickness) typically ranges from 16 to 18 gauge, providing robust support for the plaster while still being pliable enough for easy installation.
Mesh Size: Mesh openings are generally square or rectangular, with sizes ranging from 1/4 inch x 1/4 inch (about 6 mm x 6 mm) to 2 inches x 2 inches (about 50 mm x 50 mm). The size chosen depends on the specific requirements of the project, such as the desired thickness and type of stucco or plaster to be applied.
Sheet Dimensions: Welded Wire Lath is commonly available in sheets or rolls, with standard widths of 27 inches (about 686 mm), 36 inches (about 914 mm), and sometimes up to 48 inches (about 1219 mm). Lengths can vary but typically include options like 96 inches (about 2438 mm), which are standard for panels, or rolls that can extend up to 150 feet (about 4572 mm) for larger projects.
Furring Options
Flat Lath: No furring options, lays flat against the surface.
Self-Furring Lath: Designed with indentations or embossments that push the center of the mesh away from the wall, creating a space that allows for better keying of the stucco into the mesh.
Coating Options
Regular Galvanized: Suitable for general use in non-corrosive environments.
Heavy Galvanized: Offers enhanced corrosion resistance for harsher environments or for longer-lasting protection.
Applications: Welded Wire Lath is used for interior and exterior plaster/stucco applications, architectural applications, and in ceramic tile underlayment among other uses. It is particularly favored for projects where strong mechanical bonding between the wall and the plaster or stucco is required.
