Expanded Metal is made from sheets of solid metals that all are slit and stretched with each stroke of the upper die, forming a raised diamond pattern.
This pattern is called regular or standard. This pattern varies by the gauge and type of material and the size of the diamond. The sheets can also be flattened by rollers for an optional style by pasing them through a cold, roll reducing mill.
Expanded metal also can be manufactured in heavy gauges for applications such as walkways, ramps, and catwalks of all types. Frequently, the heavier gratings and catwalks are used in industrial plants for flooring and stain treads.
Due to the flexibility in materials and the sizes that it can be manufactured, expanded metal has a large application in filtration purposes. Thicker sizes with apertures above ½” also has certain general purpose applications like partitioning and covering for security.
Manufactured in Mild Steel (M.S.), Galvanised Iron (G.I.), Stainless Steel 304, 316 (S.S.) Aluminum ( AL.) from 0.5 mm opening to 50 mm opening in all possible thickness
