Applications of Stainless Steel Expanded Metal

Stainless steel expanded metal isn’t just a product; it’s a versatile solution trusted by builders, engineers, and carpenters. Its uses are boundless and offer versatile advantages to real-world applications.

Regular Expanded Metal

The Regular Expanded Metal is the standard expanded metal from the expanding machine. Its slightly rounded thickness allows liquid to drip off and not collect on its surface. Regular expanded metal is often used for washing applications.

Flattened Expanded Metal

The Flattened Expanded Metal is the standard expanded metal put through the cold rolling steel mill to flatten it. Its flattened shape allows it to be lighter and longer. This type of expanded metal makes for more lightweight mesh baskets. While it is flat and smooth, its slip-resistant coating is helpful for building walkways and stairways. 

Expanded Metal Grating

The Expanded Metal Grating is made from a single piece of steel with no joints or welding -granting it a structurally sound strength-to-weight ratio. It is used to build bridge walkways, fire escapes, heavy-duty fences, and more.
