Walkway Systems & Expanded Metal
Walkway Systems, Expanded Metal & Handrail
Expanded metal is one continuous single sheet of steel mesh produced when a flat metal plate is sheared and stretched but is left intact at the “knuckles”. It is available in a variety of thicknesses with differing sizes and designs of the apertures.
Because there are no welds or joins it operates as a structural member that distributes loads evenly over a wide area.
The high strength to weight ratio makes it suitable for many industrial and ornamental applications.
A further feature is the provision of an excellent anti slip surface. This makes the product suitable for ramps, platforms and stair treads.
The open nature of the product provides good visibility through the mesh as well as the easy passage of air and sound whilst ensuring security and protection.
