The Benefits of Expanded Metal for Your Application

Direct Metals® is an expanded metal manufacturer of products that are versatile, easy to install, and economical! We can customize the metal with a wide range of styles, materials, and finishes. Expanded metal, which includes standard, flattened, architectural, micro, ribbon mesh, and custom fabricated expanded metal, has many benefits to suit your project’s specifications.

Our expanded metal is a durable material that is frequently used to for machine guarding, trailer flooring, filters, separators, baskets, sunshades, storage bins, rack flooring, fencing, and walkway flooring. Galvanized, aluminum and stainless steel expanded metal is not easily damaged by environmental factors, such as water damage and corrosion, which makes it a perfect choice for exterior applications. Expanded metal can provide more traction with its exposed edges which has led to its use in catwalks or drainage covers.

Even though expanded metal is a strong product, it is a very lightweight material compared to others, which makes it an easy-to-install option for security applications. It is also very conductive, which means it can conduct heat and electricity, this is because of the lack of welds or breaks in the original sheet.

At Direct Metals®, we take pride in our durable expanded metal products. These metals can have small or large openings in the material that allows for the flow of air, water, and light, while still providing a barrier between larger objects.

You can expect long lasting quality products from a trusted expanded metal manufacturer! To place an order with Direct Metals® for expanded metal products, please contact us at 1-800-711-4939, email us at, or request a quote!
