Benefits of Expanded Metal

With innovative manufacturing facilities, techniques and capabilities, The Expanded Metal Company manufactures a wide range of expanded metal mesh products suitable for a variety of applications.

Expanded metal mesh has a diverse range of properties, which makes it a versatile material that can be used throughout a variety of industries. From our aluminium foils measuring just 50 microns thick, through to our heavy duty 6mm thick walkway range, we offer a class leading range of choice.

Formed from one piece of material

Expanded metal mesh is formed from one piece of material, meaning there is nothing to work loose, no fretting strands or strained joins or welds. The homogenous design of expanded metal results in an inherently strong material that can be used in a range of components.

In addition, because it is manufactured from one piece of material, expanded metal mesh is ideal for forming and can easily undergo further processing, such as pressing and shearing.

Aesthetics

Our product is available in a wide array of colours, materials and designs, and can be used to stunning effect. Contact us for a sample and you can get a closer look at its aesthetic properties

Minimum waste

Our process involves slitting and stretching material to create holes rather than punching it out. This provides immediate cost savings, especially when compared to other metal processing methods, such as perforation, which results in wasted raw material.

Anti-slip

The knuckles formed by expanding mesh give the material a strong grip: this is particularly beneficial when building stair treads, ramps and walkways. We have also developed a range of specialist anti-slip walkway meshes.

Strength to weight ratio

By expanding metal from a solid sheet form, a strong yet lightweight material is created. The uncut ‘knuckles’ of expanded metal mesh withstand pressure better than welds or joints.

Composite substrates

Expanded metal mesh can be combined with other materials to give products added strength and flexibility. For example, glass, plastics and other composites can be either incorporated into, or attached to, meshes for increased strength and security, or for aesthetic properties.

Highly Efficient

Electricity, magnetic flux and heat can all flow through expanded metal mesh, as there is a continuous connection throughout each sheet. There are no breaks or welds because the mesh has been formed from a single piece of metal.
