Hi Rib

The most rigid of CEMCO’s lath product line, the riblath has full 3/8” ribs running longitudinally through the lath 4” on center. Between each 3/8” rib is a 1/8” rib which provides for extra stiffness. The rigidity of this lath allows a span up to 24” on center for supporting members. CEMCO’s 3/8” rib is widely used for 1” solid partitions, ceilings, and walls and as reinforcements for concrete floor and roof slab.
