Features & 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 metal 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.
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.
