Openly Spaced Slat-type Lath Patents (Class 52/342)
  • Patent number: 10246872
    Abstract: A dwelling wall includes: a vacuum heat-insulating material including an outer cover material, and an inner member which is sealed in a tightly closed and decompressed state on the inside of the outer cover material; and a wall material. In addition, the vacuum heat-insulating material is disposed on a rear surface side of the wall material, and the inner member is configured of a material which does not generate hydrogen in a case of coming into contact with moisture of liquid. According to the configuration, even in a case where the vacuum heat-insulating material used in the dwelling wall is ruptured and water of liquid comes into contact with the inner member, it is possible to realize excellent stability of the dwelling wall.

  • Patent number: 9145688
    Abstract: A structural reinforcement system that utilizes a lath for receiving cementitious material. Lath is affixed to support structure such as sheathing supported by studs as may commonly be found in building construction. Strip members are affixed to the lath and function as fastener guides. Fasteners penetrate the strips for affixing lath and strips to the support structure. The strips are made of a compressible material that protects the lath from damage due to impacts associated with installing the fasteners and forms a gasket-like seal around the fasteners. Strips may be used as drainage guides for directing water that may flow behind the lath. The width of the strips creates spacing between the lath and the support structure, which allows for controlling of a thickness of a base layer of cementitious material by selecting a desired width. In another embodiment, entangled filaments are used as lath material for receiving cementitious material.

  • Patent number: 5042214
    Abstract: A self-locking panel assembly for use as ceiling panels comprising a plurality of panel units. Each panel unit formed ou of on or more panel elements and a rail extending across the panel elements.The rail is formed out of a lower section and an upper section that are offset from each other such that at one end of the unit the lower section forms a tongue sticking out, and at the opposite end, the upper section, in combination with the panel element, forms a slot dimensioned to receive the tongue. The ends of the rail are complementary and nonlinear such that they fit together. The panel units of this invention are installed in place. The rail of a first panel locks in place with the rail and panel element of the adjacent panel. The edges of the adjacent panels are thus restricted from movement so as to limit the individual free movement of separate panels.

  • Patent number: 4734337
    Abstract: A sheet of expanded metal lath has expanded longitudinal edge margins between which the metal sheet is selectively expanded transversely of the sheet length to define plural parallel rows of trapezoidal openings having long sides of about one inch and widths perpendicular to the long sides of about 7/32 inch. Between the selected rows of the openings, the sheet defines corresponding ones of plural rib constructions, each of which has a generally "Z" transverse cross-sectional configuration having substantially parallel non-coplaner and non-overlapping rib edge portions interconnected by a rib central portion disposed oblique to the rib edge portions. Where the unexpended thickness of the sheet is substantially 0.015 inch, the expanded metal sheet has a weight of substantially 1.8 pounds per square yard. The article has about 70% "openness", yet has adequate resistance to bending about lines across its width due to the configuration of the ribs and the sheet edge margins.
