Expanded metal is created by slitting and stretching metal sheets to create diamond-shaped openings. Expanded metal forms many types of industrial products including: window security panels, screens, machine guards and many more custom applications. Expanded metal has many uses and can enhance your project.
We can create expanded metal mesh for decorative applications including shelving, signage, ceiling tiles, guard rails, garden fencing and more. Expanded metal is created in the diamond pattern. Other types of grating and catwalk expanded metals are also part of our manufacturing process. You can choose from many gauges, opening sizes, materials, and sheet sizes you can use in your next industrial project.
