Innovative Easy Embedment System™ (EES)

Expert stucco installation without a crew of experts?

Our Easy Embedment System™ (EES) delivers exactly that. The most important part of the plastering application is the scratch-coat. It provides the ideal foundation for lath embedment resulting in a durable, long-lasting stucco cladding. EES, with Structa Wire and E-Flange™ Casing Beads and Control Joints ensures that the lath is embedded easily and thoroughly with up to 80% more embedment.
The raised flanges of our E-Flange™ profiles allow for easier tying of accessories to the lath. The BackerBead® equipped profiles feature an integrated, closed-cell backer rod, eliminating steps and maintaining consistency by creating a uniform caulking gap to protect from water intrusion and provide superior quality in gap control, caulking depth, and coverage.

Structa Wire comes in rolls, not sheets, which are rolled out continuously across the wall with no vertical seams and no stapling or wire tying required on the horizontal laps. Simply roll Structa Wire over door and window openings and cut the wires away. Structa Wire lath products ensure that more stucco mix gets to the wall using the same application techniques as standard lath sheets. You achieve the greatest level of embedment possible on the market with EES!

EES makes stucco embedment fast, efficient, and with less skilled labor required, creating a finish that will stand up over time, reducing callbacks and failures due to moisture intrusion from installations with lesser levels embedment.
