Why Riven Laths are Ideal for Lime Plaster
The purpose of the riven lath, as opposed to sawn lath, is to provide extra grab for the fibrous lime plaster. The splitting follows the grain down the wood and leaves an uneven ‘reeded’ surface. This means that the plaster will stick and grip, even on ceilings. The uneven & irregular nature of this tradition building material is the key to it’s quality and usefulness.
The quality of our laths is unbeatable. The Chestnut coppicers are great crafstmen and great care is taken over every stage of lath production, from the management of the woodland rotation, to selection of the standing timber, the cutting, the storing and not least of all the actual lath splitting which is very highly skilled work in itself. The attention to detail in the production of our hand riven laths is exceptional.
The coppice is a very traditional and highly sustainable form of woodland management that produces a harvest of Sweet Chestnut round timber that is perfect for the production of incredible durable building materials.
