I am installing expanded metal lathe (as would be used for stucco) and a portion of (about 6") it runs under a beam with only 6" of vertical clearance. Obviously a wide-crown stapler cannot be used to attach this portion of the lathe. I'm at a bit of a loss as to the best way to securely attach the lathe.

In the attached picture you can see where the lathe overlaps some flashing, and the stuccoed panel above it preventing any reasonable access. Sorry about the limited depth of field in this photo.

Construction adhesive......PL350
Thanks. I was only concerned that the cement retention (this is an acrylic polymer-modified cement for a multi-layer decking product (e.g. Lifedeck / Desert Crete) might not be sufficient if the lathe was embedded in enough construction adhesive for good permanent adhesion. I'll give it a try though!
