Reinforcement for inner corners

Cornerite™ reinforcing angle is used to reinforce all inside or inner plaster corners to reduce corner cracking. Cornerite™ reinforcing angle is formed from finished edge strip lath and bent lengthwise to a 100° angle ensuring a snug fit into 90° corners. It’s commonly used when walls meet walls or ceilings, over inner angles of masonry construction and in the floating angle method of applying gypsum lath to wood framing in order to reduce plaster cracking.

Cornerite™ reinforcing angle should be tied to the base lath using 18-gauge tie wire. It should not be attached directly to support framing, but allowed to float in the corner.  Available in 2" x 2" in 4' and 8' lengths, and 3" x 3" in 8' length only.
