Diamond Security Lath (for Plaster)

A Heavy-gauge lath for Enhanced protection from breach

Diamond Security Lath is an expanded steel base used for interior and exterior plaster and stucco reinforcement for secured applications where advanced breech protection is required.

Description

Expanded metal lath is formed from heavy gauge sheet steel that has been slit and expanded to form hundreds of “keys” per square yard. It is proven to possess exceptional strength and sacrificing penetration resistance, making it the preferred metal base in applications for hard coat stucco in jails, detention centers, correctional facilities, homeland security, etc.

Sold by the sheet. Contact ClarkDietrich for pricing and availability.

ClarkDietrich recommends that the ceiling “float” without being attached to the mechanical framing because of the stiffness and strength of the Security Lath. Consult with our Technical and Engineering Services Departments for use and design criteria.
