Expanded Metal is one of our most versatile product lines and our most economical products as well. The applications for Expanded Metal are as endless as the benefits gained.

Expanded Metal is made from sheets or coils of solid metal that are slit and stretched with each stroke of the upper die, forming a raised diamond pattern. This pattern is called regular or standard. The pattern varies by the gauge and type of material and the size of the diamond. The sheets can also be flattened by rollers for an optional style by passing them through a cold, roll reducing mill.

The lightweight properties and open area percentages of Expanded Metal allow it to be easily formed for a variety of energy saving applications such as light diffusers, screens, grilles and filters. When you add its quality of strength to this list, you also make it popular for panel security enclosures, guards, fixtures and more.
