Flattened Expanded Metal

Flattened expanded metal is expanded metal that has been cold rolled, leaving a smooth, flat surface with diamond shaped openings. During this process, the length of the sheet is elongated - usually about 5 percent. The expanded sheet is then sent through a leveler to maintain its flatness.

We stock flattened expanded metal in carbon steel, stainless steel, galvanized steel, aluminum alloy and other metal alloys in a wide variety of opening sizes. If a finished edge is required, U-Edging is available in aluminum, carbon steel, stainless steel and galvanized steel.
