Carbon Steel Expanded & Perforated Metal

Carbon Expanded Metal

Carbon steel expanded metal is a carbon steel sheet that has been simultaneously slit and stretched into a rigid, non-raveling mesh with diamond-shaped openings.  It is available in a galvanized finish to provide corrosion resistance and additional strength.


Expanded metal has a favorable strength-to-weight ratio and is used in many applications that required a strong mesh material.  These include air filters, patio furniture and electronic  equipment ventilation panels.

Carbon Perforated Metal

Carbon steel perforated metals are available in wide range of hole sizes and patterns. Holes can be round, square, rect­angular, slotted, or decorative. The perforated pattern can be custom or one of the standard patterns.

Perforating can reduce the weight of the product while not significantly reducing the strength of the product. Perfo­rated metals have greater structural strength than expanded metals of comparable thickness.  


Carbon steel perforated metals are uses for a wide range of products including air filters, machine guards, tractor grills and shaker screens.


Various patterns and sizes available in 4’ wide X 10’ and 12’ lengths

**Custom sizing also available**
