Release date:[11/18/2014]     Hit Count:[]   

Expanded metal is a versatile material that is produced using a sheet or plate of any solid metal, including carbon, stainless steel alloys, aluminum, titanium and copper. This material can be used for a variety of purposes, including enclosures, supports, protection, filtration and decoration, and it can also be utilized as a less costly alternative to other metals, such as perforated steel. Expanded metal can be distinguished from other materials by its uniform, diamond-shaped openings.
Standard Expanded Metal
Standard expanded metal, also known as regular expanded metal, is created in a press that simultaneously cuts and stretches solid metal, forming overlapping strips in a diamond pattern. The diamond formation not only provides air circulation but also increases the strength and rigidity of the original metal without any loss in material. This formation also increases stability by distributing weight onto supporting frames. Due to the availability of standard expanded metal in various sizes and weights, it is utilized in security applications such as lockers and warehouse enclosures. This type of expanded metal is also used in machines as safety guards that prevent unwanted objects from entering a particular area.
Aluminum Expanded Metal
Aluminum Expanded Metal has the features of light weight, shining appearance, economical, slip-resistance surface, easily to be bent or formed in any direction.
Used with concrete in buildings and construction, maintenance of equipments, making of arts and crafts, covering screen for first class sound case. Also fencing for super highway, studio, highway. Heavy expanded carbon steel can be used as step mesh of oil tanks, working platform, corridor and walking road for heavy model.
Flattened Expanded Metal
Standard expanded metal that has been processed a second time using a cold rolling press is called flattened expanded metal for its smooth and level surface. Employing the use of cold rolling and no heat induction reduces the metal's thickness or gauge, making flattened expanded metal ideal for fencing, ventilation devices and cages.
Decorative Expanded Metal
Specially designed expanded metal mesh for use in architectural and decorative applications. These design can be used to provide privacy and to control light and air while allowing visibility.Sunscreens, room dividers and building facades are only a few of the possible design possibilities.; Available in carbon steel, aluminum and other alloys in a wide range of patterns and gauges.Most of these patterns are produced on a special order basis only.
Heavy Expanded Metal
Mainly applied as platforms and stair treads for constructions, vessels bridges and boilers. They are also used as reinforcement for light construction materials and concrete pouring, radiator grills on all type of vehicles and air-compressors, safety guards for gear-drive equipment on various kinds of machines.
Used with concrete in buildings and construction, maintenance of equipments, making of arts and crafts, covering screen for first class sound case. Also fencing for super highway, studio, highway. Heavy expanded carbon steel can be used as step mesh of oil tanks, working platform, corridor and walking road for heavy model.
Mini Expanded Metal
Widely used as filtration outer layer, Security fencing,window and door,sidewalk gates,machine guards,playground equipment,food processing equipment,walkways,mezzanines, stairways, filter elements, medicine, paper-making, filtering, breeding, wire mesh for battery, wire mesh for aerial, protecting , handcraft making and window screen substitute.
