Expanded Industrial

At Ash & Lacy, we manufacture our extensive range of flattened and raised expanded metal products at our site in the heart of the UK. These are available in a variety of patterns, different metals and finishes to suit almost any application from our SecuriAL lathing range to expanded metal fencing and other uses.

We have no minimum order quantity of expanded metal panels and we offer an additional cutting service should you require a specific panel size. Ash & Lacy can provide a next-day delivery service if required, with depots all around the UK.

With our in-house tooling capabilities and assortment of machines, we are able to produce other patterns apart from those shown below. If you cannot find a product to suit your needs from those listed below, please see our expanded metal bespoke products page.

Expanded metal sheet is made by simultaneously slitting & stretching the material. This creates a bespoke diamond raised pattern opening with strands that are set at an angle to the plane of the sheet creating a raised product. These sheets can be rolled after manufacture to producing a flattened product.

Flattened, or raised, expanded metal is an extremely versatile material and used in multiple applications such as: Walkways, fencing, shelving & display units, security guards, sound attenuation, balustrades and building façades to name but a few.

At Ash & Lacy we have the added benefits of manufacturing our expanded metal products in the UK in addition to in-house tooling which, complimented by our range of equipment, means almost any profile can be made, giving our customers enormous flexibility.

Raised and Flattened Expanded Mesh

Flattened Mesh

Flattened Expanded Metal is manufactured by processing regular expanded metal in a flattening mill. This rolling reduces the thickness of the sheet and provides a smooth, flat, visually appealing surface. Ash & Lacy flattened expanded metal opens up additional application possibilities.

Raised Mesh

Strands are inclined from the plane of the sheet.

Open Area %

Normal: is viewed when the sheet is held at right angles to the line of vision.

Maximum: is viewed when the thickness of the strand is parallel to the line of vision. This dimension doesn’t apply to flattened mesh.
