Heavy Gauge and Decorative Mesh

MicroGrid® For Decorative Applications

Decorative Fire Pit Grill

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. Dexmet expanded metal is custom manufactured to your specification. Let us know what your critical parameters entail and we can suggest a configuration that will suit your needs!

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.

Dexmet has a history of providing a wide variety of alloys and geometries for decorative purposes. Some of the more common applications are acoustic microphone and speaker grills, ventilation covers, and automotive interior surfaces. Dexmet’s precision manufacturing process insures uniform appearance and performance in all of these applications. For a custom solution to fit your need, please call our engineering team for specific ideas and sample geometries. For sheets or small quantities of our expanded metals, you can visit McMaster-Carr.

MCMaster-Carr carries small quatities of Dexmet expanded Carbon Steel mesh configurations in sheets, refer to the website by clicking on their name or see the chart below:

Raised Mesh
