Expanded Metal Sheets Have Different Design Uses

Metaltech Steel Company, of Marietta, Ohio, stocks and supplies a wide variety of steel products, including expanded metal.

We stock expanded metal mesh sheets with several different sizes of openings and in several sheet sizes and designs. Expanded metal is a sheet metal that has been slit and expanded to form a diamond shape pattern. While the sheet may be expanded up to ten times its original width and lose up to 80% of its weight, the expanded metal sheet is stronger and more rigid than the original sheet. It is available in a regular (raised) pattern and a flattened pattern.

Expanded Metal is an economical solution for a vast number of applications where protection, reinforcement, greater strength with less weight, free passage of air and light, and a decorative or ornamental effect are required. We can cut the expanded metal to size for you and deliver to your location. Some common uses for expanded sheet metal are:

  • Barbecue Grills
  • Basement Windows
  • Chimney Screens
  • Garage Windows
  • Grates
  • Lathing
  • Pet & Livestock Containment
  • Security Grating
  • Small Repairs
