SpiderLath, from SpiderLath Inc., is a new fiberglass mesh and lath system for use in stucco, plaster, countertops, concrete stairs, concrete overlays and other installations.
SpiderLath can be used over existing surfaces to apply finishes. Fully encapsulated in the mortar bed for a structurally sound scratch coat, it adds tensile and flexural strength to cementitious material, providing a stronger bond. It is versatile and strong enough to use with heavy products such as three-coat stucco. Each roll is 4 feet by 75 feet and easy to cut, unroll, stretch and fasten. The product can be installed horizontally, vertically or diagonally. SpiderLath leaves no sharp edges to cut the installer, and a thin coat of stiffening material is added to the fiberglass mesh to make the product easier to handle and faster to install.
