Filtration & Acoustics

As a long established supplier to the global filtration and acoustics market, The Expanded Metal Company continues to lead and innovate in the manufacture of specialist mesh products.  


Versatile and adaptable, expanded meshes can also be pressed, formed shaped and welded in-house into components for straining, retention and filtration. In addition, cost savings can be achieved when switching from perforated or woven materials to expanded metal gauzes. Our finer meshes are available as coil form, sheet or cut to size pieces.

We specialise in high volume pressings for filter retention panels and casings and can also accommodate specialist batch work.

We also manufacture a range of formed filtration components, from vent ridge tiles for roof ventilation to small bullet filters for domestic heating systems, and our in-house tooling capabilities enable us to assist customers in developing new filtration products.


The properties of specialist expanded metal mesh products make them ideal for use in acoustic applications.

We can create durable, lightweight meshes for use in speaker systems, recording equipment and instruments.

Our Experf range is especially suitable for use in acoustic applications – a cost effective alternative to perforated metals, it has excellent acoustic properties and can be used to form speaker grilles and acoustic insulation.


From substantial involvement in your industry, we have heavily invested in the development of products to meet your needs, whether for air, water or oil.  We also offer a range of meshed developed for acoustic attenuation and sound control. Offering you a complete range of reinforcement and pleating meshes, in addition to mini mesh coils, you can also take advantage of our ability to form mesh into tubes and conical shapes to decrease your costs.
