Expanded metal is produced from solid sheets or plates of metal. In the expanded process, the sheet is simultaneously slit and stretched into diamond-shaped holes of uniform size, shape and regularity. The advantage of expanded metal is that there is no waste of material in the expanding process and the final product is stronger per pound and lighter per foot than the original sheet or plate.

Width and Length
|Length of expanded metal is overall length measured in the direction of SW
Width of expanded metal is overall width measured in the direction of LW
Determing SW, LW Direction
The illustrations show the correct way to designate SW and LW dimensions in relation to the length or width.
Glossary of Expanded Metal Terms
Thickness: Plate Thickness
Standard expanded metal is a finished product as it comes from the press after having been die cut and expanded.
Flattened expanded metal is standard expanded metal which has been rolled through a flattening machine and produced a smooth and flat surface.
This is specially designed expanded metal for architectural and decorative use. These designs can be used to control light and air while allowing visibility. It is available in various materials in a wide range of patterns and gauges.
Expanded metal grating is the ideal material for industrial walkways. The advantages of mesh grating are light weight and the strong structure from its diamond-shaped holes.
Micro mesh expanded metal is special expanded metal with very small openings. The characteristics of micro mesh such as high conductivity, sound absorption and ability of refraction have expanded the aspects of its utilizations. The key factor of micro mesh expanded metal application is material. The most common materials of micro mesh are mild steel, aluminum, stainless steel, copper, nickel, titanium and other alloys.
