Expanded metal in the food processing industry


Expanded metal mesh is widely used within the food processing industry, largely for its filtration uses and ability to offer a high level of hygiene.

We offer a wide range of expanded metal mesh that is used because of its filtration and safety qualities. Our filter panels are ideal for use within commercial kitchens and we have a selection of flattened and raised steel meshes that are a highly effective solution for machine guards.

Our finer meshes are also available as coil form, sheet or cut to size pieces. Versatile and adaptable, expanded metal meshes can also be pressed, formed shaped and welded in-house into components for filtration.

We specialise in high volume pressings for filter retention panels and casings and can accommodate specialist batch work. Learn more about how we work with the filtration industry and view our full range here.

Expanded metal’s aesthetic qualities mean that it can be used to create decorative features for commercial kitchens, restaurants, cafes and bars.

Walkways and ramps

Building on the strength of expanded metal as a platform, our walkway meshes provide superb grip underfoot and offer a highly effective solution for walkways and ramps. They’re rigorously tested and combine practicality with aesthetic appeal. View products here.

Filter panels

Our filter panels are constructed from multiple layers of expanded aluminium foil mesh, arranged alternately at right angles to each other to provide jointless continuity. This ensures a robust, high performance filter with low resistance to airflow. They are ideal for use within commercial kitchens. View our range of filter panels.

Air filtration

We supply specialist meshes to companies operating in the filtration sector, and our range of fine expanded meshes are ideal for use in air filters. As the metal mesh filters are durable and easy to clean, they are well suited to applications such as grease filtration, mist filtration and dust filtration. View our range of air filtration mesh.

Liquid filters

Our range of fine expanded meshes, available in raised and flattened stainless steel and pre-galvanised steel, are ideal for use in liquid filters within the food processing industry for the separation of particles from fluid in manufacturing processes as well as for drainage. Explore our range of liquid filters.


Our unique aluminium foil has been proven to perform in a diverse range of applications as it can be folded, wrapped or compressed. Folded into layers, it acts as a highly effective filtration media – and our foil products can be used in the production of filter panels and have applications across air filtration and liquid filtration. Discover all the benefits of our foil products.

Machine guards

Within the food processing industry machinery and plant have the potential to cause injury but our expanded metal mesh can act as a durable machine guard. Due to the nature of the material it maintains airflow and can still provide visibility whilst providing safety protection. View our large flattened steel mesh that is best suited to machine guarding.
