Expanded metal derives its name from the stretching of the material that results from the shearing of the metal plate, creating a diamond-shaped pattern. Expanded metal adds an architectural feature and an attractive design flair that is favored by architects and other design professionals.

The use of architectural expanded metal mesh and screens can also reduce energy consumption and eliminate indoor and outdoor pollutants, helping builders earn credits toward LEED certification.


Expanded Architectural Infill Panels

Infill panels built using expanded metal are an economical way to add a distinctive look to your building or school. We fabricate the panels to your specific dimensions, tag, and number each panel, then ship them directly to worksites for easy installation.

Architectural Expanded Metal Characteristics and Applications

Expanded metal products for architecture feature a strong, rigid yet lightweight structure, which makes it one of the most versatile metals on the market. It also permits the passage of heat, air, light, and sound.

Applications and Uses

When combined with its aesthetic appeal and environmental benefits, these properties make architectural expanded metal ideally suited for applications requiring increased security and privacy, excellent ventilation, and wherever appearance is important. Products typically made from architectural expanded metal screens and sheets include:

  • Sunscreens
  • Architectural interior partitions and barriers: If you’re planning a commercial or office space, chances are you’ll need to consider architectural interior partitions or barriers. Partitions made of expanded metal can provide privacy, reduce noise levels, and help to create a more efficient work environment.
  • Architectural for a building’s façade: The architectural design of a building facade is a critical aspect of its appearance and functionality. The facade must be designed to meet the specific needs of the building and its occupants, while also creating a pleasing aesthetic.
  • Security walls and partitions
  • Walls, ceilings, floors, and doors
  • Grilles
  • Building cladding
  • Parking garage panels
  • Walkway handrails and balcony railings
  • Infill panels
  • Shelving and room dividers

Standard vs Flattened

We offer both standard/regular and flattened architectural metal. Regular architectural expanded metal is an open mesh that is simultaneously die-cut and expanded as it moves through a series of progressive dies on a press. The flattened version undergoes a cold rolling process that reduces the sheet thickness and stretches the pattern, resulting in a smoother, flatter finish.
