Key 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.
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:
- Building facades
- Security walls and partitions
- Walls, ceilings, floors and doors
- Walkway handrails
- Infill panels
- Shelving and room dividers
Marco Specialty Steel Can Handle All Your Architectural Expanded Metal Needs
Marco Specialty Steel is your source for high-quality architectural expanded metal mesh produced from recycled 304 and 316 stainless steel, carbon steel, galvanized steel and aluminum. We offer both 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.
We Can Also Provide a Custom Architectural Expanded Metal Solution
Do you require custom stair treads, room dividers, shelving or other expanded metal products for architecture for your facility or worksite? It’s never a problem at Marco Specialty Steel. We have a fully equipped on-site fabrication department where we can transform any product in our extensive inventory to meet specific customer requirements.
