Webforge Expanded Mesh Brochure.pdf (1.11MB)
Expanded metal is one continuous single sheet of mesh produced when a flat metal plate is sheared and stretched but is left intact at the 'knuckles'. It is available in a variety of thicknesses with differing sizes and designs of the apertures.
The strands and knuckles are set at a uniform angle to the plane of the sheet. This adds strength and rigidity and distributes the load to the supporting frames.
Because there are no welds or joins it operates as a structural member that distributes loads evenly over a wide area.
