Expanded Metal

Expanded Metal Mesh Panels

Expanded metal is plate or sheet that has been cut and stretched into a mesh like diamond-shaped and hexagonal pattern.

Flattened expanded metal is manufactured by passing the standard expanded sheet through a cold roll reducing mill. Flattened expanded metal turns the strands and bonds down to provide a flattened surface, reducing the thickness (gauge) and elongating the pattern. Thickness may vary plus or minus 10% from published dimensions.


Material: Mild steel, copper, nickel, Stainless steel and Aluminum

Surface treatment: copper or brass plated when using other metals.

Mesh type: light, medium, heavy.

Opening shape: diamond, hexagonal, square, fish scale holes.

Classification: standard type, flat type.

Width of steel plate mesh: 0.5-2m.

Stencil length: 0.6-4m.

Specifications can be customized.

SWD: Short distance of diamonds.

LWD: Long distance diamond.

SWO: Short open road.

LWO: long way of open road.

WIDTH: Strand width.


Advantages of Expanded Metal

As much as expanded metal has demerits, such as its larger surface area per unit length, which exposes it to corrosion and chemical attacks, the merits outweigh the demerits. Some of the merits of expanded metal include:

● Relatively lighter, compared to a solid sheet of the same outer dimensions and the same material

● Decorative

● Allows light and ventilation

● Amount of light can be varied by varying strand thickness

● It yields up to three times the original solid sheet metal size

● It has no material wastage

● Does not require joining any material – it is built from a single sheet of metal

● Easy to cut (shear) as compared to the solid metal sheets

● It can be recycled

● Allows drainage and fluid flow

Uses and Applications
