Steel expanded metal mesh with diamond shaped openings for window
Steel Expanded Metal mesh is a sheet product that has been slit and
stretched to a wide array of diamond shaped openings. Steel
Expanded Metal offers savings in weight and metal, free passage of
light, liquid, sound and air, while providing a decorative or

Our expanded metal mesh is a very versatile and economical product
made from a high-quality sheet of aluminum, carbon steel,
galvanized steel or stainless steel that is uniformly slit and
stretched, forming diamond-shaped openings in the sheet that allow
for the passage of light, air, heat and sound. The expanded metal
sheet strands and bonds of the diamonds add strength and rigidity.
Because no metal is lost in the expanding process, expanded metal
is a cost effective alternative to perforated metal.
Regular Expanded Metal mesh goes through a process of slitting and
stretching metal sheet to form the standard or regular style of
expanded metal. The expanded metal now has strands and intersecting
strands called bonds forming a sharp angle to the original plane of
the solid sheet. This process creates the unique pattern and allows
a single sheet of metal to be processed into several sheets of
Metals commonly expanded include but are not limited to…
Steel- Cold Rolled (CRS)
Hot Rolled (HRS)
Electro Galvanized Steel
You will find it used in almost any industrial or commercial
application. Expanded metal permits excellent control of light and
circulation of air. It also provides clear visibility in such
applications as enclosures and machine guards.
Expanded Metal mesh is made from metal plates or sheets that are
simultaneously slit and expanded in a cold forming process creating
diamond shaped openings of uniform size and thickness.
• Regular Expanded Metal mesh is a finished product as it comes
from the press. The strands and bonds are set in a uniform manner
creating different size openings and thicknesses. This regular or
raised configuration gives added strength and rigidity as well as
slip resistance to the mesh.
• Flattened Expanded Metal mesh is regular expanded metal which has
been cold rolled leaving a flat, smooth surface.
