Dexmet Heavy Gauge and Decorative Mesh offers high rigidity in a variety of sizes and weights. Heavy Gauge expanded metal is defined by the required starting or original material thickness, which ranges between .015" and .090" thicknesses. The Long Way of the Diamond dimension usually selected for these type of thicknesses range between .200" and 2.00". The light weight and strength of standard expanded metal and plastic make it a popular material for a wide variety of commercial and industrial applications. Decorative Mesh has a unique pattern that designers find lends a “high tech” look to the parts where it is employed. Speaker grills, air duct covers and panel screens can all benefit from this visual enhancement.
Common Applications Include:
Security, Machine and Heater Guards, Filtration Support and Retainment, Decorative Grilles for automotive applications, cabinets - furniture, enclosures, lighting equipment, chimney vents, fire place screens and any architectural requirement you may have.
In many applications air deflection and diffusion, concealment properties and the esthetic appearance are critical to the product being produced.

Expanded metal can be easily cut, formed or welded on. Expanded metal is lightweight and yet strong and rigid, it is idea for decorative mesh or mesh used for aesthetic purposes. If the application requires skid resistance, then raised strands would be best for this requirement. Flattened mesh forms a smooth and flat finish, this mesh is often used to create protective enclosures, shelving, speaker grilles and baskets.
