The Future Of Lath

SpiderLath Advantage

SpiderLath is designed to be a replacement alternative for metal lath in conjunction with the following products: Manufactured stone veneer; one and three-coat stucco; natural stone thin veneer, concrete countertops; plaster; and tile.

SpiderLath offers corrosion-free material designed to last the life of the material being applied to it. It is made of AR fiberglass, a known material compatible with cementitous materials. It uses a twisted weave to aid in keying the mortar. 

SpiderLath adds tensile and flexural strength to the cementitous material providing a stronger bond. Versatile and strong enough to use with heavyweight products such as three-coat stucco and natural stone veneer.

Features/Benefits of SpiderLath Strip System:

  • Self Furring Standoffs – Holds SpiderLath off the wall, allowing mortar to fully encapsulate the mesh. This creates a fiberglass reinforced scratch coat, providing optimal strength and flexibility. SpiderLath gives you a better wall and less cracking.
  • Fastening Guide – Eliminates random fastening by following our code approved installation guidelines
  • Gasket Sealer – Seals around fastener hole, preventing water penetration to the substrate, thus eliminating dry rot and mold.
  • Shock Absorber – Reduces the blow of the fastener, eliminating damage to the glass fibers

Features/Benefits of the SpiderLath mesh:

  • Reduced Labor Costs – SpiderLath can be installed in about ½ the time that it takes to install metal lath. Click for the SpiderLath vs. metal lath time study.
  • Corrosion Free – will not rust or corrode. SpiderLath is made from molten fiberglass and coated with Zirconium Dioxide to make it alkali resistant.
  • Easy to spread mortar on – SpiderLath uses a twisted weave and has a smooth, stiff coating.
  • Easy to transport – Weighs only 20 lbs per 300 sq.ft. roll. This is equivalent to 18 sheets of 2.5 metal lath, which would weigh about 90 lbs.
  • Easy to use – cuts with scissors or a knife. Lath scratches and cuts are eliminated.
  • Stronger Wall – encapsulating SpiderLath with cementitious material gives you a fiberglass reinforced coating that is strong and flexible.
  • Versatile – can be installed horizontally, vertically or diagonally. Strong enough to use with heavy weight products such as 3 coat stucco and natural stone veneer.

SpiderLath – Compared to Metal Lath

SpiderLath is a metal lath alternative made of AR fiberglass that does not rust, is crack resistant, lightweight and easy to carry. SpiderLath reduces lath installation by as much as 50% providing significant savings for a more successful application. SpiderLath is used for a variety of applications including traditional stucco, decorative, overlays, concrete countertops, flooring and more.

Unlike the SpiderLath Fiberglass Lath System, metal lath is subject to severe damage from rust due to moisture intrusion.
