The multitalented expanded metal mesh: Meets all requirements
Expanded metal mesh - a sustainable and robust design element
Expanded metals or expanded metal mesh are made from regular expanded sheet metal. No material is wasted during the manufacture. Up to 3 m of expanded metal mesh can be produced from 1 m of raw material. It is therefore a sustainable design element. The 3D character offers a variety of design options. Depending on the angle it is viewed from, it takes on a different look each time.
Expanded metals are suitable for outdoor areas, facades, interior design, furniture making and as protective elements. They are fascinating design elements, but at the same time remain relatively robust and have a long life. Whether it is expanded metal made from stainless steel, steel or aluminium - the various application possibilities are convincing: From sun protection to privacy screens through to wall, ceiling and cabinet panelling. Even designer furniture and extravagant shop solutions can be realised with expanded metal. Because the combination with other materials is very appealing. Expanded metal mesh offers interior designers and architects plenty of scope for inspiration: urban design and industry loft charm with an interesting play of light and shadow.
Expanded metal mesh types: Brilliant lighting and privacy screen
Different effects can be achieved depending on the type of mesh and mesh width. Expanded metal in rhomb shape is very popular. Expanded metals with wide meshes are transparent on one side and opaque on the other side. They are ideal as privacy screens. We offer the following types of mesh:
From mini to maxi: Dimensions of expanded metal mesh
Anything is possible from small design stools to extensive façade panelling: Select the appropriate format among our products. Or have your desired format tailormade by us. The expanded metals are available in the following dimensions:
Bespoke: Customised expanded metal
Expanded metal can be cut in different ways. It can be cut on the nodes. However, there must be enough space available. A symmetric cut can also be made. Of course, you also have the option to cut expanded metal mesh any way you desire. We are also happy to supply you with precut expanded metal. Our tip: Aluminium expanded metal mesh is very torsion-resistant when equipped with frames. Possible cuts:
- On the nodes only possible if the dimension is a multiple of the mesh width
- Customer defined through the mesh as desired by customer
The right solution for every requirement: Bridge widths of expanded metal mesh
The bridge width is the width of the material remaining between the openings. The right bridge width is based on your primary requirement: ventilation, light transparency, stability or flexiblity. If a fixed screw connection is required, wide bridges are recommended. We are happy to advise you in terms of the ideal bridge width.
Expanded metal materials - from aluminium to stainless steel
Every material has its own benefits. Expanded metal made from aluminium is very light. It is used when a lightweight design is required. High corrosion protection is important in the outdoor area. Expanded metal made from stainless steel or aluminium is particularly suitable here. The protection can be enhanced with additional surface treatment of the metal. For example with subsequent galvanising or powder coating. The expanded metals can generally be used everywhere. Simply ask our sales consultant.
