A new, patented, solution that combines a NEW structural strand polymer drainage mesh that offers up to 5 times greater airflow and 2.5lb or 3.4lb metal lath into a single component that streamlines installation.
Benefits • Faster, easier installation than installing a drainage plane and lath separately • Installs like standard metal lath, no new installation skills or tools necessary • Combines proven components in an engineered and tested system • Clearly shows 1” minimum lath overlap • Promotes full lath encapsulation without clogging the drainage plane • Drainage mesh provides an effective mortar barrier • Self-furring • Drainage mesh edges butt together to form a continuous drainage plane • Lath is 2.5 lb dimpled, diamond mesh G-60 galvanized expanded steel for high strength and corrosion resistance • Drainage plane is a structural strand polymer mesh that allows unrestricted flow of moisture to the weep holes • Assembled in the USA from 100% USA-made materials • Conforms to ASTM C847 Size
The Design Process
Keene Building Products worked closely with experienced, professional masons throughout the system’s development to ensure it would perform in the field. Good practice recognizes the need for drainage and ventilation in adhered masonry veneer installations and Keene has applied its decades of experience in moisture management to create a highly reliable, factory assembled system.
