Brick lath

The Tirone Edilizia has always been involved in the sale of the “Stauss Graticcio”, used for almost a century for different uses, first for ceilings, then for firefighting, now especially for thin, curvilinear, resistant, fireproof, anti-seismic structures, even mentioned in technical books fire brigade. The Stauss Graticcio has a small cross-shaped brick placed at each crossing of wire on the network of wire that constitutes it; the cross allows a perfect adhesion of the mortars with a resistance of the thin structure comparable to those of reinforced concrete.

GRATICCIO STAUSS – a lattice of annealed steel wire with square mesh side 2 cm, covered with crosses of about 1 cm thick brick with square holes of about 1 cm, weight 5 Kg approximately mq, 100 x 500 cm mats of 5 square meters; supplied in rolls of diameter about 20 cm; height 100 cm; weight kg 25 about cad.

The Stauss Graticcio is foldable with hands, can be cut with scissors, sewable or joinable with wire, legible or weldable on iron, nailed on wood, changeable or attachable to any support.

It is a solid material and the terracotta crumbs that come off are often processing waste, and the characteristics of resistance do not vary even losing 10/20% of spreaders.

The metal part is covered with a protective layer of carbon monoxide that hinders rusting

For very humid areas or if you do not want to plaster it, you can use the steel type.

Stauss Graticcio: for thin, resistant structures, too curvilinear, horizontal (ceilings), vertical (single or double insulating walls), fire protection, anti-seismic, ventilated walls.

Graticcio FireFighting: Why?

The Stauss Graticcio does not allow the plaster to crack and break away from the aggression of the flames, because the expansion movements of the metal wires occur in the their seats, created inside the spreaders during cooking. Plasters notoriously do not detach from the terracotta and from that of the crosses, so small that not breaks with thermal jumps. Unlike nets, expanded metal, etc. (that with the thermal expansions detach the plasters) and to the bricks of normal size (which breaks with thermal jumps). This explains the fire-fighting effect of the Stauss Graticcio widely appreciated for many decades, as shown by the page of the book published by the Fire Brigade reproduced below:

Antisismic Graticcio Stauss: Why?

The Graticcio Stauss structures do not “rest” on the others, but are “linked” to the others therefore if subjected to seismic movements – do not collapse independently and, thanks to their thick armor, even if they are damaged they do not shatter, falling to weigh down the floors, but they bend while remaining always related to themselves.
With the Stauss Graticcio is now also built the Termo Façade Stauss, the “Perfect house coat”, safe, integrated into the house and definitive, why made up of bricks and cement like the house itself.

The Stauss Thermo Facade is an indestructible structure, achievable only with the Stauss Grid that becomes one with the cement, creating a cavity that can be filled with V insulation / choice or even built to cover previously glued insulation panels. The Termo Facade Stauss also allows the facade to be covered with any material, from the Klinker to the granite, the remaking of the existing coating on the facade to be insulated, up to the extreme case of its detachment and re-application.
Without excluding the use of other types of insulators we suggest the Shelder Shield for its efficiency of both insulation and durability.

We can offer you all the necessary instructions for laying.
