Meshes for security and defence

Our ExMesh™ range of security solutions are employed in the protection of staff and assets in sectors and environments including critical national infrastructure, defence, prisons, transport infrastructure, utilities, education and the public sector.

The ExMesh™ range includes high security fencing systems, security gates and additional metal mesh security solutions such as cages.

As expanded metal mesh is formed from one piece of material, 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. Unlike other products available on the market, our panels cannot be easily targeted at their welds or simply parted with common tools such as scissor jacks.

ExMesh Securilath

ExMesh™ Securilath™ is an expanded metal mesh solution which provides a discreet method of delaying intruders from creating an aperture large enough to gain entry to a premise. Sometimes referred to as ‘Expamet’ in the market, Securilath™ was developed by The Expanded Metal Company in the 1990s and is manufactured at our Hartlepool, UK site.

Securilath™ is now the only UK-manufactured security lath range to be certified by the Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB) when applied to metal stud, timber stud and block walls.

Securilath™ can be installed at the time of construction into internal or external walls (solid or stud), ceilings and roofs, or can be retrofit whilst refurbishment is carried out. Securilath™ is easily fixed to brickwork, blockwork, stud partitioning, ceiling joists and roofs in metal or timber.

Cost effective and easy to install, ExMesh™ Securilath™ is available in LPBC LPS 1175 SR 1, 2 and 3 rated options.
