DELTA®-DRY & LATH - Rainscreen & Fiberglass Lath

The Problems

Installing a rainscreen and lath separately requires additional fasteners and increases labor costs. Metal mesh poses a safety hazard to the workers during installation due to sharp metal. Installing absorptive cladding over wood-based sheathing can lead to moisture damage to the wall assembly.

The Solution

The DELTA®-DRY & LATH is a 2-in-1 product that combines the proven technology of the DELTA®-DRY rainscreen with an innovative fiberglass lath for a complete, one-step moisture control and lath system in one. By combining these two critical components in one, an entire step is eliminated from the construction process. DELTA®-DRY & LATH completely eliminates the need for a metal lath, providing easier and safer handling for the installer. The alkali-resistant glass is not affected by chemicals and will not corrode. 

Solar-driven moisture is stopped before it can do any damage. At the same time, DELTA®-DRY & LATH also allows any incidental moisture from within the wall to dry to the outside. 

DELTA®-DRY & LATH is extremely durable and will protect the building from moisture damage well into the future.
