Expanded metal is available either from Ash & Lacy’s standard stock range or can be made to your specific requirements. Our in house tooling facility and range of equipment means that almost any profile can be made.
Expanded metal is a strong, lightweight, one-piece mesh solution used in many engineering and architectural applications. The manufacturing process consists of slitting and drawing sheet metal into an open mesh pattern. The result is a lightweight mesh which can be more rigid than the original sheet.
Expanded mesh can be supplied in a raised or flattened format, and is available in a variety of weights and aperture sizes. An extensive range of standard off-the-shelf products is manufactured at Ash & Lacy’s UK plant using a suite of modern presses and ancillary equipment. Alternatively, if you require a bespoke specification please review our buyer’s guide and contact us to discuss your requirements.
