Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This specification covers the minimum requirements for, and the methods of application of, interior lathing and furring to receive gypsum plaster applied. Other materials are not prohibited from being used provided that their physical characteristics and durability under conditions of usage are at least equal in performance to those described. All materials shall be kept dry, preferably by being stored inside. Where necessary to be stored outside, materials shall be stacked off the ground, supported on a level platform, and protected from the weather and surface contamination. Materials shall be neatly stacked flat with care taken to avoid damage to edges, ends, or surfaces. The materials to be used are the following: tie wire and hanger wire, gypsum lath, expanded metal lath, welded wire lath, woven wire lath, nails, screws, staples, paper, and accessories such as control joints, cornerite, channels, rod and flat hangers, clips, and striplath. In general, during installation, the following shall be required: application of gypsum lath to supports, application of gypsum lath to wood supports, application of gypsum lath to metal supports, studless solid partitions (gypsum lath and plaster), application of metal plaster bases to framing members, studless solid partitions (metal lath and plaster), suspended and furred ceilings (metal lath and gypsum lath construction), main runners, cross furring, and metal furring for walls.

1.1 This specification covers the minimum requirements for, and the methods of application of, interior lathing and furring to receive gypsum plaster applied in accordance with Specification C842. Other materials are not prohibited from being used provided that their physical characteristics and durability under conditions of usage are at least equal in performance to those described.
1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
1.3 Details of construction for a specific assembly to achieve the required fire resistance shall be obtained from reports of fire-resistance tests, engineering evaluations, or listings from recognized fire testing laboratories.
1.4 Where a specific degree of sound control is required for plastered assemblies and constructions, details of construction shall be obtained from reports of sound tests of assemblies that have met the requirements of Test Method E492.
