Stainless Steel Self-Furring V-Groove Lath

when the ultimate Self-Furring corrosion resistance is required

Stainless Steel Self-Furring V-Groove Metal Lath is manufactured with five, approximately 1/4" deep, embossed "V" ribs, spaced 6" on center along the length of the sheet. The V’s allow thorough embedment into and behind the lath for superior corrosion resistance and through embedment. A self-furring expanded V-Grooved metal lath, ideal for interior and exterior use over masonry, sheathing, and other solid surfaces as required per ASTM C847, ASTM C1780, ASTM C1063.

Application(s): Stone Veneer, Stucco

The V-grooved self-furring plaster base is manufactured with evenly spaced indentations, 6” apart which run the length of the lath sheet holding the metal lath a consistent 1/4" away from the surface to be plastered. The V-groove provides an ideal point of attachment of the fastener to achieve ASTM C1063 compliance.

All fasteners or attachments are required to match the same 304 stainless alloy or to isolate the galvanized fasteners via neoprene washers to avoid dissimilar metal contact.

Stainless steel products should not be used with magnesium oxychloride cement stucco or Portland cement stucco containing calcium chloride additives.

When less corrosion resistance is required, this product can be substituted for 2.5# and 3.4# V-Groove metal lath, which are available in G90 coating with a special order and lead time or standard G60 galvanized steel.
