Expanded metal products consist of sheets or coils of solid metal that feature a diamond pattern that vary by gauge, type of material, and size of the diamond. The term “expanded metal” refers to the way the metal is simultaneously die-cut and expanded as it moves through the progressive dies on a press. This process allows it to be expanded up to 10 times its original size, while losing up to 80 percent of its original weight per square foot and retaining its form and rigidity.
Mesh of the expanded metal is uniform and does not elongate. The light and rigid mesh is strong against impact. Handling and execution are very simple, slip stopping is high, and easy execution is economical, assisted by good day lighting and ventilation.
Expanded metals in recent years are used in all fields, such as electric instruments, acoustic equipment, firing trays, automobiles, vessels, machine covers, side road protection, roads, buildings, lattices for windows, partitions, household equipment including shelves, bird cages and flower stands.
