Creating stunning architectural features worldwide

Creating stunning architectural features worldwide

Ever since we first launched our architectural mesh range, our products have been in high demand.

Expanded metal is prized by architects for its flexibility, versatility and ability to enhance lighting effects and complement surrounding environments.

It provides a controllable contour for surfaces and offers functionality as well as a means of creating stunning visual effects.

You can see The Expanded Metal Company’s mesh products on building facades, architectural screens, interior features and rooftops across the globe.

And while we have a full range of architectural meshes available to order directly from our website, including products for building cladding, balustrades, ceiling tiles and shopfitting, we have the expertise to create bespoke mesh patterns for special projects too.

Here’s a taste of just some of the ways our meshes have been used by architects, building contractors, designers and cladding specialists…

The Vantage® EMSA expanded mesh system, which screens four chimneys at the site, was developed by BTS Facades and Fabrications, and was chosen for the project due to its aesthetic appeal and shrouding capability.
