(also called regular expanded metal) is metal sheet that is simultaneously slit and stretched into a rigid, open mesh. It is available in carbon, stainless and galvanized steel, and in aluminum.
Metal is made by passing expanded metal through a rolling mill to flatten it. This process reduces the thickness slightly and provides a smooth, flat surface.
is a light-weight, high-friction product which is used to provide a non-skid, self-cleaning surface for stair treads, walkways, work platforms, and mezzanines. This material comes in galvanized channels of various gauges, widths and depths. It is most often stocked in 12 & 14 gauge.
is made from thicker sheet or plate, by a process similar to that which produces expanded metal. Expanded metal grating is often used for catwalks and platform applications where self-cleaning and good footing are required.
is predominately manufactured from carbon steel but is also available in Stainless Steel and Aluminum. It is used to cover trenches in pavement, to make self-cleaning stair treads and to construct platforms around equipment.
