What is steel expanded metal?
steel expanded metal is manufactured by slitting and stretching into a wide array of shaped openings.
It is made of low carbon steel sheet or plate, which is much cheaper than stainless steel and aluminum expanded metal.
During the expanding process, the metal can be expanded up to ten times its original width, losing up to 80 % its weight per meter, and becomes more rigid
It is lighter, less expensive than a single metal sheet, and also allows for free flow of liquid, heat, air and sound, yet producing impenetrable barrier to larger solid objects (or persons).
Steel expanded metal sheet types includes raised expanded steel mesh (also called standard or regular expanded metal) and flat expanded metal.
Raised steel expanded metal mesh has diamond openings with slightly raised surface. Flattened steel expanded metal mesh is manufactured by passing the standard expanded sheet through a cold roll reducing mill, forming diamond openings with flat surface.
