New lath solves water management problems in wall systems
Managing moisture on exterior walls is always a challenge, but there's a new solution for stone, stucco and brick veneers.
At the 2016 International Builders' Show, Wayne Buoni, director of innovation and engineering at Boral Stone Products, reviewed Boral's new Drain-N-Dry Lath with Delta-Dry Technology.
As a 3-in-1 combination of a reinforcing lath, secondary Water Resistive Barrier (WRB) and rainscreen, Drain-N-Dry Lath was developed to solve common issues related to moisture management and resist corrosion, while still being easy to install.
Buoni said It differentiates from other moisture management systems by using fewer fasteners, reducing penetrations through the primary WRB, and enabling builders to address drainage, drying and moisture vapor control underneath stone and stucco.
