Expanded Metal Mesh

Expanded Metal Mesh

Expanded metal is a type of sheet metal which has been cut and stretched to form a regular pattern (often diamond-shaped) of metal mesh-like material. It is frequently used to make fences, walkways, and grates, as the material is very durable and strong, unlike lighter and less expensive wire mesh. The many small openings in the material allow flow through of air, water, and light, while still providing a mechanical barrier to larger objects.



The main properties that mostly distinguish expanded metal and contribute to its use in various applications, both industrial and architectural ones, are its three-dimensional shape and easy further work-ability. Coming from a combined cutting and stretching action, or rather, expanding process, no material is being scrapped during manufacturing, as a result providing an absolutely cost-effective product.


All expanded metal can be manufactured in plain carbon steel, galvanized steel, stainless steel, aluminium, titanium, nickel and any other ductile metal. Expanded metal is available for further processing, such as: powder coating, rinsing, heat treatments or hot-dip galvanizing.
