Self-Furring Dimple Lath

1/4" self-furring, dimpled, Expanded Steel Plaster and Stucco Base

A self-furring expanded dimpled metal lath ideal for interior and exterior use over sheathing, masonry, and other solid surfaces as required per ASTM C847, ASTM C1780, ASTM C1063. The 1/4" dimpled furring allows for more thorough plaster or stucco embedment into and behind the lath for superior mechanical bonding.

Application(s): Stucco, Stone Veneer

The dimple-patterned, self-furring plaster base is manufactured with evenly spaced indentations that hold the metal lath 1/4" away from the surface to be plastered. This results in an even and thorough embedment of the plaster.

The dimples are spaced every 4"-6" over the rectangular sheet. This lath is ideal for manufactured stone installations per ASTM C1780 or typical plaster applications per ASTM C1063.

2.5# and 3.4# self-furring dimple lath is available with G90 coating with a special order and lead time. Self-furring dimple lath is also available with a 60-Minute Grade-D asphalt paper-backing (APB) weather resistant barrier.
