Definitions for "Metal lath"
A perforated metal sheet used for reinforcing concrete.
Sheets of metal that are slit and drawn out to form openings. Used as a plaster base for walls and ceilings and as reinforcing over other forms of plaster base.
Metal lath is slit and expanded or stamp-punched from plain or galvanized steel coils or sheets. It is of two types: diamond mesh lath, which may be flat or self-furred with impressed indentations, and rob lath. Metal lath is coated with a rust-inhibiting paint after fabrication or fabricated from galvanized sheet steel (preferred).
