Rib- lath is expanded metal-lath stiffened with longitudinal ribs. The furring design of the mesh provides efficient background plaster for construction of partition, suspended ceilings and refurbishment works. The advantage of ribbed- lath over metal-lathing is that support centers can be increased or widened.
Flat Rib Lath is available in paper-backed in either K (Kraft) paper, or with D paper.

Rib lath is idea for refurbishing damaged or aged masonry walls, when a key for rendering is not certain due to disintegration or softening of the wall face.
Lath should be fixed with apexes of ribs against the wall, edge ribs of sheets nesting into each other should be wire-tied every 15cm and ends of sheets should be lapped not less than 2.5cm and nesting ribs securely tied together. Stainless steel fixing should be used at sufficient intervals to hold the lath firmly in position.

Fixing of Rib lath Sheets
Rib lath is fixed so that the tip of the rib is put against the supporting background. The rib of the sheet should run at right angles to any supports. Make sure that sheets are superposed by a minimum of 50mm end to end and by 25mm width ways and that the ribs are nestled together.
Rib lath is fixed at each rib to wood supports using plasterers' nails or staples. Make sure that compatible corrosion resistant fixings are used, for example, please don’t use galvanized fixings for stainless steel.
Rib lath is fixed at each rib to metal support using 1.63mm galvanized or stainless steel tying wire. When joining rib lath sheets overlap the edge ribs and tie the edges with 1.22mm tying wire at 150mm centers
Rib lath can be fixed to a solid background using a suitable fixing which holds the ribs firmly against the background. Where sheets are installed perpendicularly, fixings should be positioned through all ribs at 600mm centers to make sure there have enough stability.
