Active Standard: C933 - 13
The current language in 5.1.2 refer to a Heavy duty lath without clarifying the intent of its usage. Also the weight of heavy duty lath specified in 5.1.2 is equal to the weight of regular lath specified in 5.5. The rational for the suggested change is to clarify that heavier lath is required for specific applications (for example 24 support spacing, ASTM C1063, table 3) and to define the minimum weight which qualifies lath to be used for such applications.
