Types of Expanded Metal

Apr. 25, 2024

There are several types of expanded metal based on different patterns and materials used. Some common types include:

Expanded Metal Grating: 

Expanded Metal that is produced from heavier plate, usually. low-carbon steel, with larger diamonds. It is typically used for walkways and platforms.

Flattened Expanded Metal: 

Expanded Metal that has been cold-rolled after expansion, to provide a smooth, flat, and level sheet. The flattening process reduces the original thickness of the base metal.

Raised Expanded Metal: 

Expanded Metal as it comes from the press. The strands and bonds are set at a uniform angle to the plane of the sheet. This gives added strength and rigidity, as well as skid-resistant surface.

Decorative Mesh– Specialty Expanded Metal products used for decorative or architectural applications. 

Usually specified by the manufacturer's brand name. Available in carbon steel, aluminum, or other alloys in a wide range of openings and thickness.

Micro Expanded Metal: 

Expanded metal with smaller openings, suitable for applications requiring increased precision and filtration.

These are just a few examples of the types of expanded metal available, each with its unique characteristics and applications.
