Standard Expanded Metal

Expanded metal mesh as it comes off the machine. The strands and bonds are set at a uniform angle to the plane of the sheet.

This adds strength and rigidity, allows air circulation, distributes the load on the metal to the supporting frames as well as making a skid resistant surface. Standard expanded metal is abbreviated XM.

Flattened Expanded Metal

Manufactured by passing the standard expanded sheet through a cold roll reducing mill parallel to the LWD.

By flattening the sheet, the bonds and strands are turned down to produce a smooth and flat surface, reducing the overall thickness and elongating the diamond pattern (LWD).

Cross roll flattening is done by passing the expanded metal mesh sheet through a cold roll reducing mill parallel to the SWD.

The result is the same except the diamond pattern SWD is elongated. Flattened expanded metal is abbreviated FXM.

Decorative Patterns

Specially designed expanded metal mesh for use in architectural and decorative applications.

These designs can be used to provide privacy and to control light and air while allowing visibility.

Sunscreens, room dividers and building facades are only a few of the possible design possibilities.

Available in carbon steel, aluminum and other alloys in a wide range of patterns and gauges. Most of these patterns are produced on a special order basis only.
