Expanded Metal Lath Sheet 8x2 2438x685mm (Galvanised Steel 10346 DX51D Z275) called EML is a metal lathing mainly used as a key for internal and external plaster when applied on suspended ceilings and walls.

EML Sheets are also suitable for encasing steel columns and beams, assisting in the protection from fire and as a key on timber floors before tiling.

In external applications where there is regular exposure to moisture, heavy condensation, persistent damp or concern that drying out times may be extended, stainless steel EML should be used.

This Galvanised Mesh Sheet creates a coarse surface texture which creates a key for the adhesive or plaster/render to adhere to.

One Expanded Metal Lath Sheet 8x2 2438mm x 685mm coverage is 1.67m².

Ensure that compatible corrosion resistant fixings are used.

Gloves should be worn as edges will be sharp.

Installation of Expanded Metal Lathing Galvanised Steel Sheets:

 · Fix with the long way of the lathing running from support to support, with all strands sloping downwards and inwards from the face of the coating.

 · Always ensure when fixing that allowance is made for overlapping sheets by 50mm lengthways and 25mm widthways.


Timber Support

 · To connect to timber use plasterer’s nails & screws with washers or staples at 100mm centres.

 · Start at the centre of the sheet and work out towards the edges.

 · Always fix at an angle to allow lath to be pulled tight.

 · Ensure that compatible corrosion resistant fixings are used; i.e. do not use galvanised fixings with stainless products.


Metal Support

 · To fix steel channels, tie with 1.2mm tying wire at 100mm centres.

 · Tie by creating a ‘hairpin’ shape with the wire, then pull tight and twist.

 · Take care that cut wire ends are not close to the plaster surface.


Solid Background

 · Expanded Metal Lath can be fixed to a solid background using a suitable fixing with an integral spacer/washer and a large diameter headed screw/nail that will keep the sheets firmly in place.

 · Gloves should be worn as edges will be sharp.

No matter whether you choose a local installer or a national company, there’s a few tips to help you find the right installer for your home insulation improvements, such as asking for recommendations and making sure that they’re part of a certification scheme. This makes sure that they have the right skills and standards of workmanship to carry out the installation, and you can be sure that they know exactly what they are doing.


1. Thermal inspection picture in portfolio

It’s worth seeing a installer’s previous work. There’s no harm asking if you can see any properties nearby that they’ve installed insulation in. Best way would be to see Infrared Thermal Imaging Inspections. Thermal cameras spot small, but key changes in temperature in different areas of a house, identifying problematic areas that the human eye never could and some that a visual inspection could only hypothesize.

2. Reviews

Along with checking recommendations and previous work, finding reviews online can often be a great way to find out if they provide a good service or not. However, it’s best not to solely rely on reviews you may find or review websites, as there’s no controlling who writes them.

3. Compare prices

Comparing prices will also ensure companies can’t take advantage of you and give you a fair price. 

4. Word of Mouth

The best way to find a great insulation installer is through recommendations. Make sure you ask friends and family. They will most likely give you their honest opinion and can tell you from first hand experience.
