Expanded Metal

Expanded metal mesh is commonly thought of as a diamond pattern mesh, as much as woven wire mesh is a square pattern.

Expanded metal mesh is produced, unsurprisingly, by an expanding machine. This machine uses a pressured stretching and slitting process to transform solid metal sheets into expanded mesh.

This type of mesh has been produced since the late 19th century and it offers benefits that cannot be achieved through woven mesh, perforated mesh and welded mesh.
