Equipment Screens

Expanded metal’s strength and versatility make it a highly suitable material for use in screening system, including rooftop equipment screens.

The material can be used to screen unsightly equipment – for instance air conditioning units on a rooftop – while providing security and ventilation.

Expanded metal has a high wind load capacity, so can help to protect external equipment.

Our mesh equipment screens can be used to add aesthetic appeal to buildings, and expanded metal can be used in plant housing to disguise power, heating and air conditioning equipment, as well as rainwater harvesting systems.

Our products can be used to create mesh equipment screens, rooftop equipment screens, heavy duty screens and architectural louvres.
