High Ribbed Formwork
High ribbed formwork lath is made of hot-dip zinc coated steel expanded sheet, and is used to be the material of formwork for concrete reinforcement. The products are made of the metal lath and the U pattern rib bone. It can hold the concrete grout and become a rugged surface, which does not need to be taken care of and continue next grouting work. Ribbed formwork is more endurable than plywood formwork.
The lath and ribs are formed on machines which first cut and press the mesh and then roll-form the ribs. At the same time the material is stretched to form an expanded mesh.
This kind of formwork provides straight corners, and is flexible enough to use over irregular surfaces. Plaster keys near the nose to get reinforcement where it is needed most.
