Raised Expanded Metal – Facade, Ceiling, Room Divider, Balustrades

This is one piece of raised expanded metal sheet, and its edges are sheared.

Multiple choices of materials, colours & sizes, raised expanded metal offers an optimal option for decoration.

Raised expanded metal is also known as standard expanded metal. Raised expanded metal is made by shearing and stretching the metal sheet with a set of die on a press, creating diamond shaped openings. The solid intersections of two strands are called bonds that lie on top of each other to form a raised effect. This adds additional strength and rigidity to the expanded metal, also provides directional skid-resistance surface. No material is lost in the manufacturing process, not like the perforated metal production, so it is a green engineered alternative in many projects.

Feature

  • Can never be unraveled.
  • High tensile strength.
  • Perfect finish.
  • Slip resistance or slip-proof.
  • It provides a screening effect, allowing light, sound, air and water to pass through.
  • A variety of patterns, sizes and colors available, ideal for decorative meshes.
  • Great versatility, stability.

Specification

  • Material
    steel, stainless steel, copper, brass, aluminum, platinium, nickel alloy, other alloys.
  • Surface treatment
    hot-dip galvanizing, electric galvanizing, PVC coated, anti-rust paint, polished, anodized, etc.
