  • Each sheet has square ends and smooth parallel edges for fast, easy handling and installation.
  • Diamond Mesh Lath can be bent easily to create curved surfaces.

Self-Furred Diamond Mesh Lath

  • Codes require metal lath used over solid surfaces to be furred approximately ¼ inch away from the wall to allow for the proper stucco keying behind the lath.
  • Self-furred diamond mesh lath has a surface studded in dimples or embossed “V” groove that provide the required ¼ inch of furring.
  • Fastener placement should be arranged so as not to negate the furring mechanism.

More Info

X-1 and X-2 Corner Beads for outside corners have a smooth round nose bead with Diamond Mesh wings for the keying of plaster right up to the nose of the bead.

This mesh insures a perfect bond and provides effective reinforcement where most needed. Especially recommended in fireproofing columns and beams. Rigid straight edge nose is easy to install and permits plumb straight outside corners. Excellent protection for corridor corners exposed to traffic.

X-1 Corner Bead is manufactured with a 3-inch flange and is available in both galvanized steel and zinc. Sections can be joined or spliced together by inserting a finishing nail or a piece of hangar wire.

X-1 Corner Bead is used to reinforce and protect outside corners. Creates a straight clean edge and protects the edge from damage due to bumping.
