Expanded Metal Sheets are available in Raised Mesh and Flat Mesh with different hole apertures and thicknesses to suit your individual applications. All materials can be coated using various methods, i.e. galvanising, painting and powder coating etc.
Expanded metal is available in mild steel, stainless steel, aluminium, titanium, zintec, and also nickel alloys. Expanded metal sheets can be cut to size and are available in various coil thicknesses
A significant advantage of expanded mesh is that it is formed from a single piece of material, so the process is not wasteful and therefore cost-effective. The material is cut and stretched while still leaving it attached at the knuckle. This allows it to retain its shape when cut and cannot separate or fray. Often cutting to shape is the only fabrication needed.
Expanded metal is very durable and robust, unlike lighter and less expensive wire mesh. Therefore it is used to make fences, walkways, and grates.
The many small openings in the material allow flow through air, water, and light while still providing a mechanical barrier to larger objects.
