Stainless Steel Expanded & Perforated Metal
Stainless Expanded Metal
Stainless expanded metal is simply a metal sheet which has been simultaneously slit and stretched into a rigid, non-raveling mesh with diamond-shaped openings.
Because of its favorable strength-to-weight ratio, expanded metal has hundreds of uses, from air filters to patio furniture to walkways.
½ #20 – 1 ½ #9
Stainless Perforated Metal
Perforated metals are used for filtration, safety, and decorative applications. Perforated metal comes in many hole sizes and patterns. The holes can be round, square, rectangular, slotted, or decorative. There are many standard patterns, but custom patterns are also available.
Perforating can reduce the weight of a piece of metal without affecting its strength too adversely. Perforated metals have greater structural strength than expanded metals of comparable thickness.
Various sizes and patterns available in 4’ X 10’ and 12’ lengths
- Regular - Is sheet simultaneously slit and stretched into a rigid, non-raveling open mesh.
- Flattened - is manufactured by processing regular expanded metal in a rolling mill resulting in a smooth flat sheet.
**Custom sizing also available**
