Metal Lath > Tilath- Regular & Flat Rib

 

 

TILATH - DIAMOND MESH OR SELF-FURRED LATH
Tilath is diamond mesh lath, regular or self-furred, to which offset
asphalt saturated kraft building paper has been applied. The grade D paper typically used is water-resistant, yet highly vapor permeable, and meets federal specification UU-B-790a, type 1, grade D, style 2. Tilath reduces moisture penetration while allowing for the dissipation of moisture vapor from within the structure. Foundation weep screed at the bottom of all framed walls aids in the elimination of moisture that might reach the surface of the building paper.

 

TILATH (1/8 INCH FLAT RIB)
1/8” Flat Rib Tilath is used primarily in horizontal installations such as ceilings or open web construciton. This is the same as Tilath except that 1/8” rib lath is used in place of diamond mesh lath and is usually supplied with offset paper. This product should not be considered to be self-furred. Like Tilath, grade D paper is usually applied in the offset manner, as detailed below.
